Caversham Wildlife Park, Whiteman

Caversham Wildlife Park is found in picturesque Whiteman Park, in the Swan Valley. Here visitors have an exciting chance to get up close with Australian native animals. I have visited a few times now, when friends and family have visited from overseas, and I enjoy it just as much as they do! Caversham Wildlife Park is home to around 200 species of animals, birds and reptiles. The lush park is the largest privately owned collection of native wildlife in Western Australia.

It is easy to walk around, flat pathways making it wheelchair friendly and there’s plenty of benches along the way if you need a rest. I’d suggest to make the most of your visit, spend about 3 hours covering the whole park and take in the daily shows. The park is well shaded from trees and there are undercover picnic areas around the park. It’s still advisable to slip, slop, slap.

The park is divided into themed sections. The Kangaroo Walk Through is a spacious exhibit running through the middle of the park.

Here you can hand feed the kangaroos and wallabies, which are just lovely and very tame.

At Molly’s Farm you can get up close with a variety of friendly animals in the barns, and then take a walk through the paddocks to meet some of the larger animals, like ostrich and buffalo. Animal food is provided here too. In the North-East section you’ll find animals and plants that originate from the tropical part of Australia, complete with a walk-through aviary.

The North section is home to animals and plants from Australia’s most arid region. You’ll find animals from coastal, forest and mountainous areas in the South-East section. In the South-West section there are many species that are found locally around Perth, and WA’s South West region.

There are interactive shows which take place throughout the day. The Farm Show takes place in a seated auditorium. There’s lots of Aussie action from sheep being sheared, whip cracking, you can meet a stockman on horseback, swing a billy and see sheep dogs mustering sheep.

You can meet Wombat and his friends during designated times during the day. This is an interactive experience held in a themed Australian Homestead Arena where you can line up to meet furry, feathered and scaly friends. The possums are very cute!

Make your way around the arena at your own pace and be sure to get a photo with Wombat!

At various times of the day you can also meet the cuddly resident koalas at the Koala Enclosure. The koalas are situated in a small “tree” so you can get a great picture of them, like we did. The staff are very friendly and happy to take a photo for you with your phone or camera.

My grandchildren from the UK and Australia were equally enchanted by all the Aussie animals and we made some wonderful family memories. Caversham Wildlife Park is a great day out for all!
