Dine with the Platypus

6 February 2013

Saturday 16 March

As part of the Melbourne Food and Wine Festival, Healesville Sanctuary invites you to let the team from Healesville Hotel and Sanctuary Harvest inspire you with the very best seasonal local produce in a delicious end of summer lunch.

At Healesville Sanctuary’s World of the Platypus, enjoy a four course lunch, immersed within a beautiful, earthy, creek side environment and amazing viewing of Australia’s most loved and elusive Platypus as they play, duck and dive.

Dine alongside Platypus inside one of Healesville Sanctuary’s most iconic nocturnal exhibits, where a contemporary, four course, Yarra Valley inspired regional menu awaits. Inspired by what is grown in the rich, fertile earth of the valley, from Harvest’s own farm kitchen garden, to grass-fed beef and, of course, fabulous local wines – a true expression of what the Yarra Valley can produce.

From the unique vantage point of your long-table dressed in crisp white linen, you’ll experience fine dining, immersed in a beautiful earthy, creek side environment and viewing of our amazing platypus.

And just before dessert is served, just a few steps away VIP seating has been organised to see the brand new, world first Tales from Platypus Creek show.

Tickets are $110 per person or $95 per person for Zoos Victoria Members, includes four courses, matched with local wines and Healesville Sanctuary entry.

For bookings, head to Yarra Valley Harvest or phone (03) 5957 2813.
