Fabulous Day Trip in Great Weather
Mar 2020
Super value! Great guide! Lunch and wine tasting included! Not to be missed! Behind the scenes at Caversham! You'll want to come back to Perth to explore more on your own, but DO take this tour as a 1st intro to the area around Perth.

Sue was amazing! A great day for Australian wildlife
Feb 2020 • Solo
Our tour guide Sue was lovely! Travelling alone I hate the idea of feeling lonely on a tour but Sue made you feel like you were travelling with a friend! She has so much info on anything so if you want to know anything ask away!!
Penguin island was lovely seeing the tiny penguins up close, (I saw them at the end of the pier in Melbourne) but this gives you the chance without the huge crowds and scared penguin.
Next stop the wildlife park - this was lovely to get up close to all the Aussie wildlife especially Kangaroos and the Koalas. Would definitely recommend if you want to see real Australian animals while your in Perth. Last stop is to the chocolate factory and winery, free chocolate and wine what more could you want to end your day?!

Definitely take a day out of your trip to go on this tour you won’t regret it

Thank you again Sue for a great day!

Great experience with kids
Dec 2019
Visit to the Penguin island was great - the kids loved it. The views, the experience in the Penguin research centre on the island, the beaches, and especially the cruise to see the sea lions and the dolphins... There's no promise you will see dolphins, but they are indeed there and love to swim with the boats.
Caversham Wildlife park is very good - meeting the koalas, photo with wombats, feeding the kangaroos ... Again - your kids will love it, and so will you!
The sweet finish - chocolate factory, tastings and chocolate liquor... what can go wrong there?!
Logistics - pickup on time, comfortable bus, good guide, lunch - nothing special, as expected.
Overall - highly recommended.

Great day trip
Dec 2019 • Family
My family and I enjoyed ourselves thoroughly. The trip was as described in the tour description. The glass bottom boat cruise was a delight and we were lucky to catch dolphins Swimming across as we cruised along. Our guide, Erin took great care of the details and was excellent in her commentary.
The trip to Caversham was a little rushed though we had a guide who brought us around and tried to bring us to most of the popular animal enclosures. If you want a leisurely time at the wildlife park, I suggest you go on your own and not with a tour.
Despite the heat, it was a great day spent with wildlife encounters.
