Latest news from Healesville Sanctuary – wombat naming October 2014

This is a picture of one of the keepers at Healesville Sanctuary enjoying the spring sunshine with one of their gorgeous orphan baby wombats. This little cutie is without a name, so during these school holidays get along to Healesville Sanctuary and see if you can give him one!

Here is a list of the daily presentations (below), to help you get the most out of your visit:

Land of Parrots 10.30am-3.30pm

Wombats 11.00am

Cool Conservation Roving Encounter 11.00am

Kangaroos 11.30am

Koalas 1.15pm

Tasmanian devils 1.30pm

Dingoes 3.30pm (plus look out for them on their daily walk)

You can also book a special close encounter where you can get up close to some of our Aussie icons, such as dingoes, koalas, kangaroos and echidnas. You can even get up close with the playful platypus in the special Wade with the Platypus encounter.
