What makes Bunbury Wildlife Park different is the personal interaction you get with the animals which means you are sure to find a new furry or feathered friend!
Located just 5 minutes from the Bunbury CBD, there is heaps to see and do at Bunbury Wildlife Park. Feed the parrots in the free flight aviaries or get up close and hand-feed the kangaroos in the kangaroo enclosure.  The Park is home to over 60 varieties of birds and marsupials including kookaburras, a wombat and dingoes. Adjacent to a large children’s playground with equipment for all ages and abilities, the Bunbury Wildlife Park also has barbecues, a souvenir shop, light refreshments (including coffee and ice-cream!) and all-day free parking. 

Feed the birds
There are two walk-through aviaries, with both South West and exotic species of birds. The birds will fly to you and feed from the palm of your hand for an up-close and personal experience. 

Chat with the cockatoos 
Always ready to perform the large cockatoos are incredibly entertaining - they laugh, dance, chat and even blow raspberries! The vocabulary these birds have is astounding and it is worth taking the time to interact with them.

Pat the kangaroos
Get up close to an Aussie icon when you meet this friendly mob of kangaroos. They live in a huge paddock with lots of native trees and welcome visitors, especially those with a bag of animal feed! They love human company and this is a great spot to take a seat and observe these unique creatures as they bounce around.

Picnic in the park
The tranquil setting of the Bunbury Wildlife Park makes it the ideal location for a family picnic. With shady trees and picnic tables, it would be a shame not to take advantage of the free BBQ. Bring a picnic along or purchase an ice-cream and sit amongst the beauty this park has to offer.

I highly recommend giving this place a visit, the playground is great and the wildlife within the park is a nice thing to do when in the area. Feeding the Kangaroos I would say has got to be the weirdest but most interesting thing I have ever done. The shop that they have has some pretty good food and other merchandise.This place is an amazing place to take the kids on the weekend or a great place to visit when visiting Bunbury.

Reasonably priced, very good facilities. All the enclosures were very neat & clean, animals were healthy and happy. Worth a visit. Great playground outside too.

We should have come on the weekend when there are Dingo feedings and other talks/reptile encounters. We popped in spontaneously on a Friday afternoon in May so the cool weather still made it really pleasant. Super clean premises, very well-cared for animals, shady carpark. We couldn't walk amongst the kangaroos as they were taking a well-deserved break after a busy summer holiday (we came after hols ended). Staff was friendly. Mostly bird aviaries, some quokkas, plenty of wallabies, we had a good chuckle over the wombat sleeping with his feet in the air, h his

It's not a bad place for a family outing with small children. I just don't particularly like the idea of caged wild animals in general. That's all I could think of when walking around the zoo. The poor animals.
