Having a little flashback to Perth, Western Australia.
I took this snap of these white kangaroos on a visit to Whiteman Park, in the Swan Valley. The Joker was off fishing and I went with my sister and we took my aunt and uncle, who were visiting from the UK.
This “baby” roo is really a bit big to be nursing from mum but he is taking the opportunity and she is letting him, despite having another joey in her pouch.
I have to confess that prior to this visit in March, I had never been to Whiteman Park. It used to be known as Caversham Park and lays claim to being the largest metropolitan park in the world.
I have to say, I was impressed. The park itself has free entry, if you want to go along and have a picnic with the family or perhaps take bikes and ride around. But there are several attractions within the park, including the wildlife park, which do cost. From memory I think it was AU$20 or $25 for an adult. You can walk right up to these kangaroos and pat them.
All in all it was a lovely day out wandering in a bush setting and seeing a range of Australian native wildlife. It’s a great day trip if you are in Perth and looking for something different to do.
Have you visited?
