Healesville Sanctuary is hosting Acoustic Afternoons, featuring relaxing live music, fresh regional food and some of the best in local brews.
Running on 23 and 24 February and again on 2 and 3 March, the sanctuary is encouraging visitors to lay out a picnic blanket and unwind for a weekend of barbecue favourites and charcuterie.
A pop-up bar featuring regional beer, wine and cider as well as gin cocktails from local distillery Four Pillars will complement the food from Yarra Valley producers.
The adults can settle in for an afternoon of live acoustic music while the kids – and the young at heart – are entertained by giant lawn games, bubble games and plenty of animals.
Acoustic Afternoons is included free with all entry tickets to Healesville Sanctuary.
