Healesville Sanctuary

Where to eat

Spring is finally upon us here at Healesville Sanctuary. Come in and try our new spring menu with inspirations from local harvests in the Yarra Valley of spring green peas, salads & our famous vege felafel.

Thinking Christmas already? So are we! 

Let us take care of the cooking this Christmas and join us for an Australian inspired Christmas in our Brolga Room. Think fresh aussie prawns, roasted beef sirloin, juicy local cherries and not to mention the Yarra Valley Wines and Brews to match. All to be enjoyed while overlooking the lush bush setting within the Healesville Sanctuary. Find out more.

Healesville Sanctuary is located in the heart of Victoria’s leading wine region. When you eat and drink with us, you’ll enjoy some of the best food, coffee and wines the Yarra Valley has to offer.

Our food partners, the Healesville Hotel, are renowned for a dynamic, passionate approach to food. They use high quality local produce from the region’s farms, orchards and artisan producers.

Between our three cafes, we cater for every taste and budget – from couples looking for fine dining, to groups wanting a great lunch option, to fussy kids looking for a snack on-the-go.
