When your cruise ship docks in Melbourne, you’ll be picked up at the port and taken inland to check out the Healesville Sanctuary and the Puffing Billy Stream Train. At the wildlife sanctuary, you’ll meet Australia’s native animals including koalas, kangaroos, monitor lizards and dingos. Then head to the Puffing Billy Stream Train for a ride through the rainforest on the century-old steam train. Small-group tour limited to 24 people ensures a more personalized experience.

You’ll be met by your guide at Port Melbourne and driven by comfortable air-conditioned coach about one hour through the Dandenong Ranges, known for cool-climate rainforest and extensive Eucalyptus forests.

First you’ll visit the Healesville Sanctuary, one of the best places in Victoria to see and interact with native Australian wildlife. You’ll walk with your guide through a stunning bushland setting where you can see wombats, birds of prey, platypus, wallabies and other amazing animals that are native to Australia. Hear about the Sanctuary’s efforts to fight wildlife extinction and commitment to treating more than 2,000 sick and injured native animals each year.

After seeing the animals, take a break for a typical Aussie barbecue lunch of locally sourced sausages served with a variety of toppings. Once you have enjoyed the food and hospitality, you’ll reboard your coach and head to the Puffing Billy Steam Train in Belgrave.

Climb aboard the century-old steam train, maintained in mint condition by dedicated volunteers. The Puffing Billy still runs on its own mountain track between Belgrave and Gembrook, through the heart of the rainforest. Travel back in time as you chug through the gorgeous Sherbrooke Forest waving at friendly bystanders as you go.

In the late afternoon you’ll be returned to your ship in Melbourne to end your tour.
