Visit Yarra Valley Winery & Healesville Sanctuary

This event has already taken place.

Saturday 29 July 2017

Join us in the beautiful Yarra Valley. Experience a close encounter with some Aussie wildlife, taste some of the best wine from the region, and top it off by a visit to the local chocolate factory.

This event is open to all VU students and friends.

Step out of the city and start your day at Healesville Sanctuary. Meet some friendly wallabies and see if you can spot the well-camouflaged lyrebird. The lyrebird is famous for its ability to imitate almost about any sound on earth!

Take a relaxing walk around the park and check out a live wildlife show. Learn about Healesville Sanctuary’s dedication to the recovery of endangered species while enjoying a hearty Aussie lunch.

Then head to the Yarra Valley. We'll sample wine from one of the most recognised wineries in Australia, as well as unique chocolate fusions from the local chocolate factory.
