Visiting Perth and wondering what to do while you are there? Why not spend some time with the wildlife at Caversham Wildlife Park? It’s definitely worth your time especially if you love animals 🙂 It is a half-hour drive away from the city, so you wouldn’t have to worry about spending too much time traveling to this place!
Caversham Wildlife Park, Western Australia
Caversham Wildlife Park showcases many of Australia’s native animals, such as kangaroos, koalas, quokkas, wallabies and many more.
It also provides opportunities for visitors to be up-close with these native animals – so you will be able to feed the kangaroos, take up-close pictures with some of the animals (the koalas and wombats just to name a few), watch the sheep getting sheared, and even milk the cows too.
Don’t worry about additional charges as everything is already included in the admission fee 🙂
Feed The Kangaroos at Caversham Wildlife Park
At the kangaroo enclosure, you will get to pet, feed and take heaps of pictures with the kangaroos! Kangaroo food is provided in the bin under the hut, in the middle of the enclosure. I tried coaxing the kangaroos to come close by putting some food on my palm but none of them came. They were probably already very well-fed (ha!) – maybe I should come earlier next time!
Farm Show at Caversham Wildlife Park
I would highly recommend the farm show as you will get a glimpse of what farm life is like – from sheep-shearing, whip-cracking, billy-swinging to cow-milking! My most favourite part would be getting to milk the cow, as I have always wanted to do that since I was very young, but haven’t really had the chance to! 🙂
Wombat & Friends Show at Caversham Wildlife Park
At this show, you will get to see some reptiles, birds, and marsupials from up-close. Don’t forget to bring your camera as you wouldn’t want to miss taking pictures of these animals!
Line up to take a picture with the hairy-nosed Wombat while you are here 🙂 Unfortunately, you won’t be able to hug them yourself (unlike what I did at Ballarat Wildlife Park – read more here). Instead, you will only be able to pet his legs.
Meet The Koalas, Caversham Wildlife Park
Weather in Western Australia was a little bit crazy during winter time. It was sunny, windy, rainy all in one day and this cycle happened a few times while I was there, so I wouldn’t really recommend visiting Perth during winter. On the bright side, you will get to see lots of rainbows during this period 😉
Overall, I had a wonderful experience at Caversham Wildlife Park. I would definitely recommend you to visit this park if you love animals, or even if you are just not sure what to do in Perth. I’m sure it won’t disappoint.
