“Aussie's unique marsupials”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 24, 2010

Caversham Wildlife Park is located in Whiteman Park, in Morley ( on the way to
Swan Valley). If you go by bus, it takes about half an hour from Perth.
Here we can enter the enclosures not only to mingle with, but also feed the animals like kangaroos, sheep, camels and rabbits. Those animals are trained to be friendly with us and it's easy to pose with them. Even the koalas are ever ready to pose with us!
The best time to visit this place is early morning as there are shearing demo and a koala show that one might not want to miss. Moreover, morning is the best time to feed the kangaroos because they are still hungry! Afternoon is their nap time ... they will not stand up or eat if you try to feed them.

“If with kids cool, and an experience”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 5, 2010

I don't do zoos, but this was part of an organised trip to the 'Pinnacles and sand boarding'

I was quite pleased and got to touch koalas, touch a wombat and feed roos

Kids would love this we didn't spend much time there which was a shame

I'd rather have spent a bit longer but my trip was to the pinnacles

“good day out”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 19, 2010

Had only been in Oz a few days and weather very hot on the day we visited. Obviously wanted to see Koalas and kangaroos mostly and were pleasantly surprised to be able to walk through kangaroo area where they were just sitting around.
Whole park seemed very well looked after and signposted well, but in kangaroo area in particular needed more rangers as we saw two acts of unbelievable stupidity by other visitors that should have been stopped. I personallyu would have thrown both families out for what they did.

“Nice Wildlife Park in Perth”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 27, 2009

We went as soon as it opened and were immediately mobbed by a horde of hungry free range red and gray kangaroos, including albinos, which clustered around us to be hand fed from a bin of free roo food. We also saw Bennett's, Damar, agile, swamp and yellow footed rock wallabies, including a swamp wallaby with a joey just out of the pouch. They also had dingoes, foxes, possums, bettongs, pottaroos, wombats, and a number of birds, but few reptiles. The pottaroos were very active, while most of the others slept. The animal show included a blue tongue skink, spotted quoll, kangaroo, and wallaby which could be touched but not held. You could also take a free photo beside any of them. There were also numerous native plants in the park.
