19 Jun 07 - Day 10 (Caversham Wildlife Park)

By the time we left for Swan Valley, it was already 10am. Got to Caversham Wildlife Park about 11am, the kids played at the playground in Whiteman’s Park while sis and BIL went to the information office to find out about the entrance to Caversham Wildlife Park. Went to get tickets and spent the next few hours in the park. Saw many animals and birds from different parts of Austalia, wombats, wallaby, kangaroos, koala, etc. Spent the longest time in the kangaroo enclosure feeding them and stroking them. Some of them were bigger than those we saw at the Redgate Farmstay. About 1pm, we went for the “Meet a Wombat” session. We got to touch the wombat’s belly and the kids got to take photos with it. Went to the Koala enclosure and saw a couple of big ones sleeping, a 10-month old running about on the tree and one with a 5-month old in her arms. We left shortly coz sis and the kids were hungry.

Ate late lunch at the cafĂ© at the entrance of the Caversham Wildlife Park about 2+pm before going into the souvenir shop to look around. Left around 3+pm and BIL wanted to go to the MR Chocolate Company again to get a two more packets of chocolates for the groomer and also the kids’ tuition teacher, Mrs Han. So drove there and Ry and I followed him into the shop to eat the dark chocolates from the bowl. Headed back to Perth City at 4pm and drove to Hertz to return the car by 5pm. Then walked around the Hay Street Mall and Murray Street Mall before eating in a Korean restaurant. Holiday ending soon and I would be going back home tomorrow.
