This was a great excursion all round. A small group, but that was okay. This being my first encounter with the wildlife of Australia especially when I first saw my first kangaroo what I thought was a kangaroo was actually a wallabee. I took a lot of picture of the wallabee. Our tour guide, Steve left the group to go explore the sanctuary on our own giving us direction where to go and what to look ,while he goes to prepare our barbecue lunch. While we walking we encounter the koalas in cage doing their own thing - sleeping, sitting on a branch, - great photo opportunities. Lunch consisted of sausage and bun and salad was good. We were then told to go see the Spirits in the Sky Bird Show, this was a great show, as we saw many species of birds that are here in Australia. Wow the birds showed off what each bird were known for. The show was very entertaining. Next it was the World of Platypus show. Another interesting show and I learned a lot of facts about the platypus. When we were done with the Healesville Sanctuary, we were driven to where the Puffing Billy Steam Train ride was. This was a fun ride and the scenery was great as we rode the train. I would recommend this excursion for those visiting Australia.
This was a fantastic day made all the more enjoyable by our guide Steve. Healesville Sanctuary was enjoyable and the BBQ lunch cooked by Steve a great experience. The train ride was fun and Steve then took us to feed Cockatoos which was a fun photo opportunity.
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

Great tour and fabulous animal sanctuary! Not to be missed if you want to see all of Australia's wonderful wildlife in a pristine park with natural settings. Viator did a wonderful job making all of our tours great and worry free.
Great guide. Nice man. The only thing he needs is a little stool for older folks to step out of van.
The Healesville Sanctuary was fantastic, however, the train ride on Puffing Billy was so short and covered nothing interesting to see. Our driver/guide had limited knowledge of anything beyond the specific things included on the excursion and spent most of the driving portion being silent.
We had a good time on this trip. If you ride on the train be sure to get on the right side. Our guide told us to ride on that side and he was correct. The Sanctuary was very nice and the only disappointment was the lunch because some wires got crossed and we didn't get the BBQ. He got us back to town early so we also got a tour of the city which was a nice plus. He had WIFI in the vehicle and I do wish that I had known ahead of time because I would have brought my IPAD.
