Have you ever wondered what animals might come out at night at Whiteman Park?

Kids with red torches, which don't hurt the animal's eyes.

Join them on one of their ever-popular Nocturnal Woylie Walks - available every Friday night - to discover just that!

You will get to see the woylies and quenda feeding in their protected sanctuary on an engaging evening tour of Woodland Reserve.

Whiteman Park is only 30 minutes away from the central business district of Perth, and the Tonkin Highway extension has brought it even closer.

Woodland Reserve is Whiteman Park's top conservation initiative, providing a predator-proof haven for unique and endangered native animals. It is home to many different species, which means you might be lucky enough to spot one of the many echidna or wallabies that thrive in the protected sanctuary, or owls, microbats and more flying overhead. It is also one of the few places where the critically endangered woylie, or brush-tail bettong (Bettongia penicillata), can be seen - all on the doorstep of the Swan Valley!

Knowledgeable volunteer guides lead the tours and with the aid of special night lighting, you will get to explore the habitats of the Reserve and see the animals when they are most active!

Alternatively, join them in the April school holidays for unique kids' tour with less walking and more time to watch animals up close.

The tours are an excellent way to spend quality time with the important people in your life: whether with family or friends, enjoying on a romantic date with a difference, or simply appreciating our native bushland.
