About
Located on the doorstep of the Swan Valley, Whiteman Park is one of the largest metropolitan recreation and conservation parks in the world. Covering nearly 4,000 hectares, the Park is a place to enjoy life’s simple pleasures – walking or cycling on peaceful bush paths, playing with the kids or simply delighting in the calmness of our unspoilt natural heritage… There’s a lot to see and do including a visit to Caversham Wildlife Park, Motor Museum, Tractor Museum and Revolutions Transport Museum. There’s also Vintage bus, train and tram rides, playgrounds, barbeques and shady picnic areas – you could spend a day there and not see it all!

Whiteman Park consists of 4,000 ha (almost 10,000 acres) of bushland, one of the largest suburban parks in the world. Whiteman Park is 22 km (14 miles) north of the capital of Western Australia, Perth. The park consists of banksia woodland, half of which is conserved. It's a haven for native animals and vegetation. Whiteman Park is located in the Perth suburb of Whiteman in the upper reaches of the Swan Valley. It's around hafl an hour by car from the Perth CBD. Apart from the Park's conservation value, the park hosts a vintage tram and a motor museum. The tractor museum is a feature yhay will interest farmers.

This is a great way to see a different side to Whiteman Park. The guides are really well informed and passionate - I 'd strongly recommend but wrap up in winter. It would be great if the guides used red filters too - the white light torches meant our eyes never adjusted to the dark and probably temporarily blinded the nocturnal animals too.

What a wonderful way to discover the nightlife of our Australian bush and the unique little furry creatures who live there, to learn from the guide of their little lives and how they are being cared for and bred to save them from extinction, especially the woylies. We also saw many quendas and tamar wallabies and were able to feed the woylies and quendas peanuts, which they enjoyed very much. I recommend this moonlight walk to all who wish to learn about our very special wildlife, in their natural habitat. Fantastic!

Hello Michele, Thank you for taking the time to review the Woylie Walk tour - I agree that it is a fantastic tour and I'm pleased you discovered lots about our wildlife.

Arrived to the cafe and received overpriced, over cooked chips in rather small portions for the price.
Benches were not clean and left with food and dirty plates on them, despite the current COVID-19 situation.

Everything was closed so we decided to do the trail walk although because of VERY POOR signage became lost very soon. Land was very plain and nothing to look at. The said 4km walk soon became 6km, boring and tiring.

Will not return. Would not recommend.

Hello James, I'm sorry to hear that you had a negative experience visiting Whiteman Park. Some of the attractions were closed in June due to COVID-19. Except for the Perth Electric Tramway Society, all attractions are now operating. I'd recommend calling in at the Visitor Information Centre to make the most of your day and to pick up a copy of the park map. It's a big park, and there are lots of things to see and do.

It was an easy walk along pathways/dirt tracks. The guide was very knowledgeable. I learnt a lot about Woylies and Quendas, and also Dieback. Highly recommend this walk to experience these native animals in their natural environment. Wear closed-in shoes so the bull ants don't get you!

We reckon that this park is a magical place for children and with plenty to interest the not so young. Unfortunately we didn't arrive until after lunch on the Wednesday. Missed out on the vintage train ride which finished at 1.30pm, the electric tram wasn't operating; we headed to the Motor Museum. Plenty to see with the other Transport Museums, the Wildlife Park, the Village Shops, various recreational facilities and bush trails. A range of activities and interests to suit many and certainly a great attraction for young ones.

All the family (grandparents, parents and 7yr old grandchild) enjoyed this 2hr evening walk through the bush land conservation area and learnt a great deal about local fauna, conservation and climate change. We saw lots of animals and had a close encounter with Woylies and Quendas where we could feed them peanuts. It is an easy walk and the track is flat but uneven in parts and may not suitable if you are very unsteady on your feet or cannot walk for at least 1km. Our guide was passionate and knowledgeable about the topics he spoke on and very easy to talk to. It was a great experience for all ages.

This is a wonderful park in suburban Perth, great picnic facilities and kids playgrounds. It has great community shops and fantastic museum of transportation. But if you want a great experience l recommend the night Woylie Walks a great great experience for adults and kids alike, plenty of wildlife ( Woylies, quendas, sugar glider and if your lucky owls echidnas or micro bats , a truly great couple of hours for kids anh adults alike. And great guides. Well worth the admission. This is five star

Whiteman Park is at the head of the Swan Valley, it is one of the largest urban-rural parks in Australia. The park is around half an hour from down-town Perth. There are lots of things to entertain the whole family, including museums and wildlife reserves. The tram is good fun, check on times.

In all we found this quite disappointing. Our reason for doing this walk was capturing photographs of the wildlife at dusk. Also giving our Granddaughter a chance to learn some different photography. There was no prior information that flash was OK albeit to be kept reduced. The walk was very dark by the time we got out there. In my opinion there was too much stopping for talks on dieback of trees. There were only two species on animals (both very similar) all at quite a distance - not as close as shown in the advertising blurb. Also it was not as light as the advertising material suggests. We also were reviewing the venue as a possible outing for our Camera Club but realise that it does not suit that purpose. This event would much more suit those with a deeper interest in conservation. It was the advertising material that made us think it was suitable for photography.
