Wine & Wildlife


  • Healesville Sanctuary (map)

Healesville Sanctuary is teaming up with Yarra Valley icons to bring you a gourmet experience with a wild difference!

Over the Queen’s Birthday long weekend, Wine & Wildlife will bring you the best in food and wine against the backdrop of the Sanctuary’s stunning bushland setting.

From 11am to 4pm each day, five event spaces will showcase a line-up of local wineries, craft breweries and hearty winter food, including tastings from De Bortoli Winery, Napoleone Brewery & Cider House, Punt Road Wines and more!

Warm up by roaring open fires and enjoy live acoustic music while keepers roam the grounds with some of our furry, feathered and scaly friends for serendipitous wildlife encounters. 

Plus, on Saturday only visit the Four Pillars Gin pop-up bar, hosted by Healesville Hotel on the scenic Tasmanian Devils boardwalk!

Just like we love our local wineries, we also love our local wildlife. All Wine and Wildlife proceeds directly support Zoos Victoria’s efforts to fight the extinction of 21 local threatened species. #LoveYourLocals

Healesville Sanctuary is just a one hour drive from Melbourne CBD through Victoria's beautiful wine country. Tastings are included with general admission. Zoos Victoria members and children under 16 receive free entry.
