What You Can Expect
Stop at the Healesville Sanctuary, where you can observe an abundance of Australian wildlife in beautiful bush habitats. See kangaroos, koalas, platypuses, lyrebirds, Tasmanian devils and more while learning about the sanctuary’s rescue and conservation efforts.
Savor a traditional Aussie barbecue lunch of gourmet sausages with all the fixings, and then continue on to the town of Belgrave nestled in the Dandenong Ranges. Climb aboard the Puffing Billy steam train — the oldest in Australia — for a ride through the semitropical Sherbrooke Forest. Cross a traditional wooden trestle, and enjoy the passing scenery from inside one of the immaculately maintained train cars.
After your historic ride, relax on the return drive to Melbourne and your waiting ship.
Worry-free Shore Excursion:
This was a fantastic excursion. Our Bunyip tours guide was great!!. The Puffing Billy train was a lot of fun. Healesvile was amazing with lots of koalas and kangaroos. Our barbecue lunch was delicious.
One of the highlights of our vacation
Steve Andrew is a first class tour guide. He went out of his way to ensure that we saw as much as possible.
Puffing Billy Steam Train is fun and the scenery is beautiful.
But nothing can compare with the Sanctuary . Fantastic.
We have already commented that the only thing we were disappointed with is that you advised us to wait for our guide at 0830. So we were down at the port waiting from 0815 and he only arrived at 0930. That was after we spent almost $20 on phone calls (we have an overseas phone line) trying to locate someone in your company to determine what was happening. We almost gave up and went on another tour.
Lovely day in the Dandenongs. Puffing Billy train was a fun trip. Healesville had a great variety of animals

Long drive to sanctuary but enjoyed that very much. Claire gave us a great tour around since she had worked there before. Steam train was nice as well.
had problem with communications as where the pickup point was located. Tour and guide were great and we would do it again. Jim and Karen
The attractions were simply OK. The train ride was very brief and the Sanctuary while good was overrated. The tour was poorly organized from the start with half the group not knowing where to meet the bus resulting in a 30 minute delayed start. It was difficult to hear the guide who provided very little information about Melbourne. To make things worse, he had problems navigating late afternoon traffic and we were late in arriving at the port.
