    Fabulous day out
    It’s about an hours drive from Fremantle. Beautiful grounds and loads of activities for children. We loved the area where the kangaroos were, plenty of space for them and a quiet area to rest. You are able to purchase food for them. I’d say you need 2/3 hours for a good look around and to see the shows and take part in activities. Plenty of parking available, take a picnic and enjoy.

    Wonderful
    The park never ever disappoints. Animal welfare is a priority and the staff are just lovely I paid a bit extra for my sisters visiting today to hold 🐨 and I have to say it was the icing on the cake. Steve the zoo keeper was such fun but had a natural care for the super fury marsupial Mr Percy . He made it so very special for us. However there is so much more to do and see and please allow yourself at least 3hrs to fully explore. Please note you do not have to pay to have your photo taken with koala, wombat, snake etc and you don’t have to pay to feed the kangaroos. This place is a perfect family treat. Thank you 😊

    Fun Family Owned Zoo
    This is one of the few places in the world where you can cuddle a koala, hand-feed kangaroos and pet a wombat. Wonderfully attentive guides and clean facilities! Check the website to pre-book the koala cuddle. Actually holding a koala is prohibited in many parts of Australia, but not here. The kangaroos are friendly and fun to feed! We truly enjoyed this place.

    Amazing animal park.
    Was over in Australia from Scotland for a few weeks visiting family. This was their surprise to us on our last full day and by far my favourite experience. Such interactive experiences are precious, and there is plenty here to enjoy. Had a cuddle with Bingo, the koala. Fed a kangaroo and talked to some parrots. It's a full day of fun and exploration at a reasonal price, great food on offer and a brilliant shop to stock up on goodies from your experience. The place is well laid out, staff are really friendly and informative and i love the fact a huge amount are volunteers so give up their time to care for the animals. Lots of specialised viewings but plenty of written information throughout the park for those who just want to take their time and learn about the animals. The toilets are easily accessible and clean, and plenty of staff to help with any issues. We cannot recommend this park enough. It was a such a great experience and we have so many amazing memories from our time here.

    Outstanding wildlife park with plenty to see and do
    This isn't just your regular city zoo or wildlife park. There is so much to do for both kids and adults. Feeding the kanagaroos and wallaby's was included in the fare (fantastic), the farm show was entertaining for all ages, and the experiences on offer with wombats and koalas were excellent. All the staff present were passionate in their jobs. Additionally, sections of the park opened and closed throughout the day to ensure they were properly staffed and so animals get proper rest. It's so good to see a Wildlife Park think of the welfare of their animals so much. For the price of admission, the park provides outstanding value to customers.

    Don’t skip Caversham Wildlife Park
    Caversham was absolutely wonderful. I had a free day while in Perth and decided to make the trip over. Well worth it. The animals are very well cared for and happy. The keepers and volunteers were friendly and knowledgeable. From petting and holding a Koala, petting and feeding kangaroos and wallabies to holding a snake (wasn’t in my original plans) hanging out with a wombat and talking for quite some time to the Quokka caretakers it was a great day well spent.

    Nice place to see Kangaroos and kuala! Worth the money.
    Nice place to see some of the Australian species up and close. One can touch and feed the numerous kangaroos. Kualas are also an amazing sight. The only negative aspect is the apparently sorry state of the kangaroos..many seem to be in a pitable condition. The place becomes crowded with large groups - better to go in early.

    Great Up close experience with the animals
    It is a great wildlife park to experience feeding kangaroos up close. You can walk up to the kangaroos, and the feeds are free (as compared to other cities where the animals are in enclosure and you need to pay for the feeds). Kids and adults also get to hold a snake for photos and watch (and participate in) animal shows. Varieties of wildlife are also great. Definitely an awesome experience for everyone!!

    Iconic Australian animals in one place
    It’s a zoo, so if you don’t like to see animals in captivity (or virtual captivity), give it a miss. For us visiting Australia, it was a great way to see all of their wildlife in one place. The animals seemed healthy and many had been rescued from elsewhere, the keepers seemed to genuinely have real love for their jobs. The queues to have photos taken (for free) with animals were well managed and moved pretty quickly for the volume of people. At around £17 each for 3-4 hours in a compact, looked-after setting, seemed good value and the cafe was reasonably priced too. Parking at the site was free.

    Definitley recommend for a fun day out
    This is a great place where you can easily spend the whole day. You can meet koalas and get photos with them, there are tons of kangaroos that you can feed and take selfies with. There are so many other animals too that are definitely worth seeing though. There are shows throughout the day which are worth a watch. Also a large picnic area and great gift shop! Not far from Perth so great choice for the day especially families and not too expensive considering everything available.

Super crowded, money grubbing kind-of place. We felt so sad for the animals. The enclosures were small and depressing. I do not recommend supporting this place. Made us so sad for the animals. Eve the kangaroos seemed depressed. Some of the animals paced back and forth in there tiny, dirty enclosures/cages. Depressing. Do not support this place.

Excellent opportunity to see Australian wildlife in their natural environment. Completely suitable for children as they can roam freely in the kangaroo enclosure and see farm animals close up. For adults, there is a wide selection of birds and reptiles as well as wombats, tasmanian devils, penguins. There is a nice display of koalas although they are not native to WA
