The charming town of Healesville is located in the Yarra Valley winegrowing region. Fruit and berry farms surround the town on rolling hills, and the mountains and forests are not far. Tree-lined Nicholson Boulevard in the centre of town offers specialty shops and plenty of local food. The major attraction is Healesville Sanctuary, a semi-open display, natural setting zoo dedicated exclusively to native Australian animals and well known for its platypus breeding program. Visit the animals or go for long walks to enjoy the natural beauty of the area, sip wines right at the vineyards, or taste the local delicacies in one of the fine restaurants.
Luxury cottages and bed and breakfasts, or motels and campground cabins--your accommodation in Healesville can be as indulgent or simple as you want it to be.
