Interesting day 🤩

Great introduction to Australia wild life. 🦜🦉🕊️ The bird training show was fantastic and eye opening. I did not know we could train birds the way they are. The team at Healesville Sanctuary did an awesome job with those birds 🤩👌🤩 Puffing Bill and the museum, was like going back in time .🚂 We recommend this tour a 100%.

The day was fantastic. Everything was above expectations. Only negative would be needed an extra 30min at Yarra Valley chocolaterie.
