Healesville Sanctuary

Summer at the Sanctuary

Healesville Sanctuary is your summer backyard!

Every day of the school holidays, keep cool under the new Hills Hoist sprinkler, connect with nature through the ever-popular creek play, explore our rustic cubbies and play awesome backyard games.

Listen to the didgeridoo and learn how to throw a boomerang with Wurundjeri Elder Murrundindi, and keep an eye out for roving bush poets, singers and encounters with some furry friends!

Plus, don't miss our daily animal experiences: 

  • Sanctuary Summer Festival

    Sanctuary Summer Festival

    (14–28 January)

    For two weeks during the summer school holidays, enjoy local food, drinks at the bush bar, live acoustic music and kids entertainment while relaxing at our new Ellim-atta Gathering Space!
