Healesville Sanctuary, Badger Creek Reviews - Write a Review

  • Absolutely loved this place. The animals are so well cared for and the staff are so obliging and helpful. The Australian Govt. really looks after it's wild life and Natural habitat. I have great admiration for this country.

  • A good place to visit if you plan your trip ahead and align the time of you visit to some of the events taking placing in the sanctuary. Otherwise you still might run into one or two staff taking animals out of the enclosure for some fresh air where you can observe them closely.

  • Had a great day today with the kids Nice place to stay and tranquility..

  • I love this place and honestly it was better than Melbourne Zoo. They had a bird show and around 85 different Australian species
