come see kangaroos, koalas, wombats and more
If you want to get close to Australian native animals and experience a bit of farm life, then Caversham Wildlife Park within award-winning Whiteman Park, is the place to go.

The park is well set out and the attractive grounds are landscaped with trees and shrubs which provide shaded avenues to amble along, so on a hot day, it is still very pleasant.

We began our visit with the Farm Show where we were introduced to a horse, sheep, sheepdogs, shearing, whip cracking, lambs and milking.

Next, we made our way to Meet the Wombat and Friends where you can get up close and personal with a range of native Australian marsupials including a wombat, quoll and woylie, as well as reptiles and variety of birds.

Within easy walking distance is the opportunity to take photos of, or be photographed with, koalas. Nearby is a large enclosure where you can hand-feed kangaroos and wallabies, some of which had joeys. There is also a Little Penguin show which we chose to skip as we had been to Penguin Island the previous day.

And there are many more animals as well. All the animals looked well-cared for, the park was clean and attractive, and the keepers were enthusiastic and knowledgeable. I'd say it is well worth a visit.
