Kangaroo siesta

On a boiling hot day F’s cousin Bella took us to Caversham Wildlife Park on the outskirts of Perth. I must have told them about my childhood dreams and my interest in Aussie animals…

Caversham Wildlife Park is, besides the Zoo, the second option in Perth to see a wide variety of Australian animals. You can get close to them, enter some enclosures, feed the kangaroos, touch a koala\'s fur, have your photo taken with an animal.

The star of the show is Big Bubs the Hairy-Nosed Wombat - I was even allowed to hold her myself because the park was not very busy that day - usually she stays in the keeper\'s lap. 

In addition to the Aussie species the park also has domestic animals, like these funny fluffy chickens in one of my photos.

Compared to Perth Zoo, Caversham is the better choice for families with kids and generally people who want to interact with the animals, feed and pat them. People who prefer observing animals in their natural habitat and behaviour to treating them as pets will feel happier at Perth Zoo.

The disadvantage of Caversham Wildlife Park is its location far out of the city in Whiteman Park - you need a car, getting there by public transport is difficult.
