One of our kangaroos and emus.
A Twist of Willow offers guests the chance to have a close up experience with our native animals, these include, wombat, dingoes, quolls, ,kangaroos, wedge tailed eagle, emus, wallabies, bettongs, sugar gliders and the many birds on display. Guests can also wander around and view the nocturnal animals during our night time, their day. We have installed night vision cameras on the enclosures so our guests can have very unique experience of watching the animals in the comfort of their room including Wilbur the wombat in his burrow. We also have a collection of farmyard animals on display.
Steve and Loo have a passion for A Twist of Willow and love showing and educating our guests about our animals and creating lifetime holiday memories. Some of our animals have been hand reared, including dingo, wombat, emus, kangaroos, wedge tailed eagle, owls, rat kangaroo and we really enjoy spending time with them.
Mount Evelyn Township is only a couple of minutes drive from A Twist of Willow and has cafes, shops, chemist, doctor, restaurants, takeaways and an IGA supermarket, playground. In the Yarra Valley their are plenty of wineries including Rochford. We are within an easy commute to some of the best attractions Victoria has to offer. A Twist of Willow is located on Little John Avenue which is only about a five minute walk from the Warburton Trail ( where people can walk or share the trail with bike riders and the occasional horse). If when you get on the trail you turn left, then it is about a 20 minute walk along the Trail to the Happy Trail Cafe, where you may like to stop for breakfast, cappuccino or lunch, from their home cooked yummy menu.
