Healesville Sanctuary, or the Sir Colin MacKenzie Fauna Park, is a zoo
specializing in native Australian animals. It is located at Healesville
in rural Victoria, Australia, and has a history of breeding native
animals. It is one of only two places to have successfully bred a
platypus, the other being Sydney's Taronga Zoo. It also assists with a
breeding population of the endangered Helmeted Honeyeater.
The zoo is set in a natural bushland environment where paths wind
through different habitat areas showcasing wallabies, wombats, dingoes,
kangaroos, and over 200 native bird varieties.
Conducted tours, bird shows and information areas are available to visitors.
