We visited the wildlife park on a Friday afternoon at approximately 1:30. It was very quiet with 2 other small groups walking through the park and several families over in the playground (an area we didn't visit due to other interests)
I was visiting with my friend who transports in a wheelchair. It was our first visit. We had read that the park was accessible but many places claim that, yet, still come with many challenges.
From the car park, to the end of our adventure, it was, refreshingly, entirely accessible.
The staff were very welcoming and treated my friend, as she is more than deserving, as an equal. They, without being patronising, seemed to have a higher awareness of providing her with great service.
Tickets came to $19 for the 2 of us. 1 adult + 1 concession.
We purchased 2 bags of seeds @ $1:50 each.
I recommend seeds...It made us very popular with the animals.
All of the paths provided access to the entire park. They were wide, smooth and very clean.
Enclosures were spaced along the paths. There were signs giving you information about each animal and other signs on how to show respect for the animals while interacting with them.
All of the animals appeared happy and well cared for and, sincerely, their enclosures were emaculate.
There were three walk through opportunities.
2 with birds who were happy to approach us and sit on our arms, shoulders and heads. This provided lots of great photo opportunities.
The other walk through area was with the kangaroos who, the ones that came up to say Hello, were friendly and very gentle as they ate seeds from our flat palms.
There were plenty of well kept grassy and shady areas throughout the park.we found a lovely gazebo to sit and eat our picnic. Th gazebo had enough room to navigate the wheelchair and the end of picnic table was the perfect size to park the chair of my friend, meaning we could both sit comfortably together to enjoy our lunch.
We found hygiene was of high standard. Accessible Sanitizer throughout the park and hand washing areas.
Clean, tidy and ambulant Toilets available in the park as well as some very conveniently just outside for that last minute go or the rush to go on arrival.
Opportunities to purchase souvenirs were available at the exit/entry. They were fairly priced and the range provided something for all ages. We purchased a pretty teatowel which displayed an image of galahs $10 and a beautiful large stuffed toy parrot $16:95.
We really enjoyed our trip to Bunbury wildlife park. We will definitely return and highly recommended this venue as an outing for all ages and ability.

This is a delightful park with loads of different birds, dingo's, wombats & kangaroo's. Beautifully maintained. You can walk inside the bird enclosure and feed some of the birds. The gardens are well maintained and there is play equipment for the children. Delightful place for a walk on a sunny day.

We have done peel zoo and others and this is the best small zoo by far!!
It is immaculately presented,each animal pen has been well maintained and can tell they really look after their animals,lots of shade.big,open areas and an amazing bird aviary.
Huge playground for children all ages outside the area and is very well priced!
The people that work there are so informative and really passionate about what they do and you can tell they have really put their heart into this place and it shows!
It is a must see if you are in the area!!!
Would give it more than 5 stars if i could.

Small but a beautiful place. This place gives you the opportunity to feed some amazing australian animals. We can buy the animal feed bag at check in and the bag is generous food for only $1.50. The handlers are friendly and interactive with you. The highlights would be the Kangaroos that you could come up close to them feed them and take photos with them. most of the parks showcase birds.

So many things for our children to climb on and see in the park kept them busy for "hours". They were able to pat kangaroos and see other animals up close. The Cafe serves very good coffee, tea & snacks. Well worth the visit.

Took our grandson there yesterday after not having visited for a couple of years. There seemed to be less animals, and less birds than before. Lots of pens appeared empty. Very frustrating trying to find the public toilets - signs still there pointing you to one end of the park only to find they were demolished and had to return to the cafe and start again! When we paid at the entry counter I could see no sign with admission prices - that sign was on the door at the other end apparently! Also were not offered the bag of food to purchase, so were half way around before realising that others had them. Disappointing visit this time.

Hi, thank you for your honest feedback. The Park is undergoing some major changes which required the demolition of the original toilet block. There is a portaloo at the back of the Park in the interim. We've had to move some of the animals in preparation for the noisy and disruptive demolition/building process. There are only 2 empty pens because of this and the tammar wallabies have been moved to near the quokka for their wellbeing. We are trialing some new systems which has also meant that some of our signage might appear to be in the wrong spot. This will also be rectified in the coming months. It's a growth phase for the Park, not always smooth but worth it in the long run. Thanks again.

Took our 1 year old, she loved it and so did we.
Buy a bag of seed on the entrance for $1.50 and you will have the birds and roos feeding out of your hand.
Highlight for me was the 2 beautiful dingos, we were there at 11am for the talk with the carer.
This park is not huge like Perth zoo, so dont expect to be walking around for hours, but entry is priced at half what Perth zoo charge.
Right outside the wildlife park (next to the cafe) is a big toddlers play park (free) with lots of attractions for kids, good to have lunch after your visit while the kids burn off energy.

If your down in Bunbury looking for something to do i really enjoyed and recommend this place, mainly for younger kids though.
