Time Out says

This bushland haven for Australian wildlife is famous for its daily birds of prey and parrot show

Been on a wildlife adventure lately? Just over an hour from Melbourne, located in Victoria's green Yarra Valley, is Healesville Sanctuary – home to a host of Australian animals living in their native environment. 

Arguably the most thrilling experience at Healesville Sanctuary is the Spirits of the Sky show. Free with the cost of admission, the show is a spectacular demonstration of the beauty and power of Australia's birds of prey and parrots. Head to the flight arena and see fierce wedge-tailed eagles, falcons and owls, as well as colourful parrots as they swoop around the arena and show off their skills. 

Spirits of the Sky runs twice daily at noon and 2.30pm. Kids under 16 visit free during the Victorian school holidays.
