My visit to Dandenong Ranges was not constrained to a single trip. I visited this little heaven a few times again. One trip was dedicated to the wildlife of Healesville and the other one given over to the walking adventures of Sneha and her friends to Olinda Creek falls.

When the Europeans arrived in Australia, a land so far from their own, they brought pieces of their own country and replanted them here— perhaps to ease their life in a fairly harsh landscape. Especially since many of them came from the gentle English countryside with all its lacy comforts, and were flung into the deep end of the Southern Hemisphere. Australia was a wild land, teeming with snakes, crocodiles and an unforgiving sun that shone long and hard. So, it must come as no surprise that the European settlers sometimes strung along things that would make them feel at home—mostly their favourite tree saplings, horses and timber-made ‘kit houses.’
Healesville Wildlife Sanctuary was a cosy place with all the llamas (seriously the cutest ever), kangaroos, wombats and other wildlife. I simply adore the glorious countryside and the sunshine that envelops it, albeit the inaccessibility it really was very rejuvenating for soul - as you stand there in wide-eyed awe of His creations. The skies were relatively clear that day, and it's really fortunate to be able to see the horizon 360 degrees round :)
