Nothing clears your head like an escape to the country, and Healesville Sanctuary is offering an opportunity to get back to nature while listening to live tunes and sipping on fine wines.
Running from 12–4pm across four days, Acoustic Afternoons will see the wildlife centre's lawns filled with live music, snacks and a pop-up bar. Roll out your picnic blanket and listen to the likes of The Tuck Shop Ladies (on February 15 and 16) and Anita George (on February 22 and 23) while surrounded by gorgeous bushland.
The bar will be serving local wine, beers and ciders, and cocktails starring Four Pillars gin, with charcuterie and a BBQ available to buy and eat, too. When you're not listening to the music — or visiting the sanctuary's many koalas, platypuses, dingos and other native animals — you can play giant lawn games.
The live music afternoon is free with entry to the sanctuary, which you can book online in advance.
