Luisa and Kevin are getting married at 11:30am on Saturday the 28th of March 2020 at Healesville Sancturary. Below is some helpful information but please let us know if you have any other questions. We hope you can share the day with us!
You do not need to pay for entry into Healesville Sancturary! Please enter the sancturary via The Brolga Room.
While you are welcome to arrive early, the ceremony will be held at the Brolga room at 11:30am followed by time to walk around the sanctuary to see the animals! Please meet back at the Brolga room at 1pm for drinks and canapés, followed by lunch until 5pm.
Whatever you want! But as a guide, smart casual. Keep in mind that most of the paths at Healesville Sanctuary are gravel or lawn so wear comfortable shoes!
Please let us know if you can join us, and any dietary requirements you may have, no later than the 15th of February 2020. Please RSVP by call or msg on 0437368833 or by email (firstname.lastname@example.org).
Healesville Sanctuary is approx. 1 hr drive east of the Melbourne CBD. Please see their website for detailed directions and transport options (https://www.zoo.org.au/healesville/getting-here/).
Please don’t use the main entrance. Park along the road in front of Badger Creek Primary School (click map below to expand). From here you can access the Brolga room directly.
There is plenty to do in and around Healesville if you wish to extend your stay! As well as Healesville Sancturary, one of Australia’s largest native animal zoos which houses and plays a role in the conservation of over 200 species, Healesville is also home to the Four Pillars gin distillery. Healesville is also right next to the Yarra Valley wine region.
There is also lots of nature right on your door step! The Yarra Ranges National park covers a ‘mountainous’ area of cool temperate rainforest. Explore the towering Mountain Ash forests and spot lyre birds on the Black spur drive which starts in Healesville, or visit the rainforest gallery near Warburton. It is one of our favourite places in the world.
Slighty further afield is the Ada tree, one of Victoria’s largest living trees. Travel south from Healesville to the coast to visit the stunning scenery at Wilson’s Promentary, or Phillip island for cliffs, penguins, and Kevin’s parents.
