It’s Day 4 of my 3 week holiday here in Perth, Australia! Here’s a selfie with a kangaroo! Click here to read about Day 1,2 & 3! On this hot hot day, we went over to Caversham Wildlife Park to say hi to the animals. We got a map of the area and followed the path to be sure we don’t miss anything. Straight into the park were birds on the right. The Kookaburra was one of the first few to greet us.
Here’s a blue-winged Kookaburra whose voice sounds more like barks than a laugh.
There were a lot of birds in this wildlife park. Every section you visit would have different species of birds. Good place to visit if you’re a bird lover. I’d prefer to look out for other animals.
There were koalas, wallabies, echidnas, wombats, sheep, dingos and many more. They even have llamas and alpacas! Here’s a baby alpaca (Cria).
There are a few shows at Caversham Wildlife Park, we managed to watch the Farm Show and Wombat And Friends. The farm show shares a little on how the dogs (American Kelpies) round up the sheep, how they shear the sheep for their wooly coats and how to crack the whip. A few lucky audiences would get a chance at cracking the whip, feeding the baby goats and milking a cow at the very end!
Wombat And Friends basically shares a few details about some of the animals at Caversham Wildlife Park and gives you the opportunity to have an up close look at the animals. You are even allowed to pet and take photos with some of them.
An up close session with this little meat eater. You’re not allowed to pet or take photos with him due to their meat eating nature.
Caversham Wildlife Park has an kangaroo encounter area. It’s a very huge space and you’ll be able to feed the kangaroos while you’re there. You can find white albino kangaroos and probably get your own selfie with it. Also see if you’re lucky to find a joey in a kangaroo’s pouch!
Before leaving, I caught sight of this really adorable kangaroos. Not only are they 3 sleeping in a heart formation, but the kangaroo and the bottom is hugging the albino kangaroo’s tail just like a bolster! How adorable! I quickly managed to get a snap before it wakes up.
Our whole day was pretty much spent here in Caversham. If you’re planning to bring a snack or your own meal here, they do provide picnic tables at certain areas too. There’s one right outside Molly’s Farm equipped with a vending machine for cool drinks and water.
That’s all! Bye!
