Ride in comfort on the ZOOBUS shuttle service from Melbourne CBD to the rural township of Healesville. During this non-stop, one-hour journey, passengers will travel beyond the city limits through the picturesque Yarra Valley, one of Australia’s premiere wine growing regions.

On arrival at the Sanctuary, visitors can expect to see sleepy koalas snoozing in gum trees, joeys peering from kangaroo pouches and camera-shy platypus in their nocturnal creek habitat.

Visitors’ senses will be awakened to the sounds of the bird-life inside the Flooded Forest Aviary and the call of native water birds and frogs along the Wetlands Track.

Traveling with ZOOBUS is the simplest and most cost-effective way to book your visit to meet some of the world’s most unusual creatures.
