Discover Melbourne’s lush subtropical rainforests, home to incredible gliding marsupials, Wombats and world famous lyrebirds.

Melbourne’s Superb Lyrebirds were filmed by Nick Hayward of Wildiaries for the BBC’s Life of Birds. The UK public voted this world famous naturalist David Attenborough's favourite moment! Starting with a private tour to see urban Little Penguins or an evening viewing of Platypus, you’ll then head to Toolangi in the Yarra Ranges, visit a winery and have lunch in the renowned Healesville Sanctuary. The next day you’ll search for lyrebirds, then spotlight Wombats. In glider country, one of the region’s top wildlife experts and guides will show you Greater, Yellow-bellied and Sugar Gliders accompanied by Boobooks, Powerful Owls and Tawny Frogmouths.
