The Swan Valley region boasts some of the very best animals and wildlife parks and experiences that Western Australia has to offer. From national parks, wildlife sanctuaries and reptile parks to picturesque picnic spots, nature trails and wildflower drives, the Swan Valley offers plenty of opportunities for an amazing face-to-face encounter with nature.
There’s something so special about watching faces light up at the joy of an encounter with nature. The Swan Valley offers several ways for you and your friends and family to experience the wonder of petting animals and learning about wildlife.
Children can indulge their love of animals at one of the farm stay accommodation options. They may find themselves milking a cow or collecting eggs – a real treat for children.
Caversham Wildlife Park is particularly popular. This premier native wildlife park features over 2,000 animals and birds and provides the opportunity to ride a camel, hold a wombat and even feed a kangaroo and view sheep and horse demonstrations.
The Maze in Bullsbrook is much more than a 2,500 square metre timber maze. Kids can meet the koalas, kangaroos and emus and take a walk through the native bird aviary.
A visit to the Swan Valley Cuddly Animal Farm provides children with the opportunity to experience the joy of getting up close and personal with delightful farm animals in an outdoor country atmosphere. You can also book overnight accommodation here.
Get intimate with some scaly friends at the Western Australian Reptile Park on Henley Street in Henley Brook, where you can stroke the snakes and learn about different reptiles and other native Australian animals.
