Know More about this tour

After pickup from the centrally located meeting point on in Melbourne, travel by comfortable modern mini-buses about one hour through the Dandenong Ranges, known for cool-climate rainforest and extensive Eucalyptus forests.

First, youll visit the Healesville Sanctuary, one of the best places in Victoria to see and interact with native Australian wildlife. Youll walk with your guide through a stunning bushland setting where you can see wombats, birds of prey, platypus, wallabies and other amazing animals that are native to Australia. Hear about the Sanctuarys efforts to fight wildlife extinction and commitment to treating more than 2,000 sick and injured native animals each year.

Be sure to check out the unrivaled "Spirit of the Sky" bird of prey and parrot show where birds show off the skill we admire most, their ability to fly. Once you have enjoyed all Healesville Sanctuary has to offer, youll re-board your mini-bus and head to the Puffing Billy Steam Train in Belgrave.

Climb aboard the century-old steam train, maintained in mint condition by dedicated volunteers. The Puffing Billy still runs on its own mountain track between Belgrave and Gembrook, through the heart of the rainforest. Travel back in time as you chug through the gorgeous Sherbrooke Forest waving at friendly bystanders as you go.

In the late afternoon youll be returned to Flinders Street in Melbourne where your tour ends.
