The Bunbury Wildlife Park is located on Prince Phillip Drive next to the Big Swamp Wetland.
The wetland is an attraction in its own right as there are many species of birds, reptiles and mammals that inhabit the area.
There is also a 2km pathway so when you visit the Wildlife Park, you can extend your visit with a walk at Big Swamp.
The Wildlife Park is a very popular place with families and after a wander through the park grounds admiring the exhibits, it
is great to sit and relax in the cafe with a drink and a bite to eat.
Activities in the Wildlife Park include feeding birds in the walk through aviaries, interacting with the cockatoos, patting the kangaroos,
picnicking and listening to talks by the keepers.
The different bird species exhibited in the park include Little Corellas, Long-billed Corellas, Major Mitchell Cockatoos, Pink and Grey Galahs,
Sulphur Crested Cockatoos, Red Tail Black Cockatoos, Australian Shelduck, Black Swans, Barn Owls, Brush Bronzewing Pigeons, Chestnut Teal,
Cockatiel, Common Bronzewing Pigeon, Curlew, Eastern King Parrots, Eastern Long-billed Corella and many more.
If you cast the odd glance upward into the trees that are so abundant in the park grounds, you will see a lot of free-flying birds also call the park their home.
Some of the non-bird species in the park include Brush Tail Possum, Hairy Nosed Wombat, Potoroo, Swamp Wallaby, Tammar Wallaby, Red Kangaroo,
Western Grey Kangaroo, Dingo and Quokka.
Just before you leave the park you will also find a number of reptiles.
You can also book special birthday party events for your kids. The park is a great way to introduce youngsters to the beauty and magic of nature.
Of course it takes a lot of effort and a considerable amount of money to keep a park like this open. Apart from daily entry fees, the park raises money
by conducting and 'Adopt and Animal' program, offering corporate sponsorship deals and limited work experience placement positions are offered.
A small army of volunteers also help to keep running costs down so if you live in the area and are interested in any of these schemes, please contact the park
The park is open every day from 10am to 5pm except Christmas Day, Boxing Day and Good Friday.
