Halls Gap Zoo, not far from Horsham.
Kingfisher Cruises. It was a fun trip exploring a shallow river area with a wide mix of birds.
Healesville Sanctuary, one of the Zoos Victoria sites. At Healesville, all the animals are Australian. The day was overcast and lightly rainy, but not enough to interfere with our enjoyment of the animals.
They had displays of wombats and Tasmanian devils, but the animals were not visible when we went by. They also had a platypus on display, but the lighting was too dim to be able to get a photograph. Too bad, as we never got a platypus photo on the whole trip, though we did see them in zoos twice.
Melbourne and cities around Victoria. These include the Halls Gap Zoo (a small rural zoo with quite a few animals), Horsham (small town where Ingrid's friend teaches), Grampians (beautiful national park), Geelong (city south of Melbourne with the National Wool Musem), CERES Environmental Park (with community gardens, small farms, delicious cafe, plant nursery, tons of educational displays, and much more) and some community gardens on public housing estates.
Wilsons Prom was a beautiful park on the southern coast, and we went on a couple of nice cruises on the Murray River.
