Explore Penguin Island & Caversham Wildlife Park 

Penguin Island is a unique nature reserve that is home to Western Australia’s largest colony of little penguins - the smallest species of penguin in the world.  Penguin Island is blessed with beautiful beaches and is surrounded by dazzling, crystal clear waters. Both locals and visitors from all over the world catch the ferry or take a cruise here to get up close to the wildlife, explore nature trails, swim, surf, snorkel or to enjoy a family picnic and the safe, sheltered beaches.  The little penguins are very shy and can be difficult to see in the wild but you can get up close and learn all about them with the rangers at The Discovery Centre.

You will also visit Caversham Wildlife Park. Located inside Whiteman Park, Caversham Wildlife Park is Perth's premier wildlife experience and a must-see on any visit to Perth. Hand-feed the kangaroos, join in the interactive farm show, touch a possum or lizard, meet a wombat, and have photos taken with koalas! Caversham Wildlife Park; a great Australian meet & greet experience for the whole family.
