Perth Day 1 - Caversham Wildlife Park

First activity kami dekat Perth ialah melawat Caversham Wildlife Park. Sebab trip ada kanak-kanak, so kena beli jiwa dia orang dulu haha. Yang shopping and merayau dalam CBD tu kita push towards the end, awal-awal ni semua activity yang sesuai untuk kids.

Caversham Wildlife Park is more than just a zoo. But in comparison to Phillip Island Wildlife Park, of course PIWP lagi best, but fret not, once you arrived at the Whiteman Park entrance, the scenery will leave you in awe! The route towards the park was very scenic, lots of native trees and plants and we even spotted few wild kangaroos from afar. 30 minutes drive from the city, guna Google Maps Inshaallah sampai hehe. Plenty free parking around the park, don't worry :)

Weather was hot, like crazy hot, maybe akan lebih enjoy the place if weather a bit breezy. TIPS: Don't forget to apply sunscreen and bring along a wide-brimmed hat and sunglasses. Plenty of shady spots to sit under if needed, but still panaih rasa dia :P

Zoo entry fee is reasonable (Latest - Adult: AUD28 and Child: AUD12.50), good variety of native Australian animals, knowledgeable zoo keepers (helpful too; most of them rajin tolong take photos), farm show was amusing (please check on sessions timing to avoid disappointment), great park layout and directions around the park quite clear (Inshallah tak sesat hehe).  

Two famous attractions are Wombat & Friends enclosure (meet the super fat wombat, interact with snake) and Kangaroo enclosure; where you can touch, interact and feed the kangaroos (selfie also cannn). However, I rasa the Kangaroos look a little lazy or maybe overfed as the food are freely available. As for Koala, we can only see but not allowed to hug or cuddle, slightly stroke their fur boleh lah. Anyhow, just don't forget to take the mandatory selfie with Koala (walaupun they barely open their eyes, quite sleepy when we went in) hehe.

There's a small cafe there (near the entrance) but not sure on Halal status tho (said to be Halal, boleh check on website kot). Clean washrooms and ada souvenir shop too, just in case nak cari seketul dua barang kenangan. Overall, the place is well kept and maintained, even the animals are sufficiently fed too. The park is definitely as good as most reviews mentioned, fun for both adults and kids.

After spending the earlier part of the day here, then kita keluar picnic lunch and solat at one of the playgrounds around the park (still within Whiteman area)

TIPS: Bring your own food, we even angkut the rice cooker haha and utilize the excellent picnic facilities. We then had a quick tour to the Motor Museum (perfect for boys) and Train station. Ada waterpark jugak, unfortunately we were running out of time, sebab nak pergi Margaret River pulak.
