One of the best places to encounter Australian wildlife is in it's natural habitat. Healesville Sanctuary does an exemplary job of creating this experience. Find yourself holding a 'spring baby' or having an 'up close an personal' experience with an Australian native animal. Enjoy our backyard of adventure playgrounds and picnic spots in the bush along creeks and streams. Wander the tracks and climb the hills.
Marysville State Forest abounds in gorgeous scenic drives such as Lady Talbot Drive which is accessed via Woods Point Road just east of town. Attractions along this route include the Phantom Falls, Keppel Falls, Taggerty River crossing and The Beeches Rainforest Walk which is a scenic 4 kilometre circuit through ancient rainforests with many trees over 300 years old.
