Whiteman Park is a unique conservation and recreation reserve, covering 4,000 hectares of natural bushland and leisure facilities just 25 minutes from the Perth CBD. The Park, located on the doorstep of the Swan Valley, boasts a fantastic array of attractions and facilities making it a great destination for families and tourists alike. Best of all, entry to the Park is free.

The extensive array of attractions includes the popular Caversham Wildlife Park, where you can feed the kangaroos, pat a koala and meet a wombat. While evening tours of Woodland Reserve offer you a rare view of the Park at night - and a rarer encounter with the endangered woylie, a cute hopping mammal that is thriving in the protected sanctuary at Whiteman Park.

Discover our rich transport heritage story in three museums - Revolutions Transport Museum, the impressive Motor Museum of WA and the Tractor Museum of WA. Then explore the Park by vintage train or tram, taking a leisurely trip through remnant farmland and natural bushland; or on a guided tour by vintage bus each Monday.

Take delight in wandering through the Children's Forest with the kids, searching for intriguing artworks - from the peeking possum to a life-size wedge-tailed eagle's nest and golden echidna - whilst finding out more about our native bushland.

Open every day of the year, the picturesque grounds of the Village and Mussel Pool areas are perfect for picnics with lush lawns, shady trees and well-appointed facilities including playgrounds, a splash pool, ample BBQs and shelters. Other facilities include three bush walking trails, 14km of shared use paths, and a dog exercise area,

A variety of quaint Village shops including the Print, Pottery and Handcraft shops, The Lolly Stop and Village Art Gallery round out the attractions, all of which are wheelchair accessible.

Was our first visit there. We visited with friends and their extended family. A great afternoon with lots to keep the kids active. Plenty of clean open space to run around, trail bushland walks, tram rides and hire pedal things. Caversham Wildlife Park is another attraction. Would highly recommend this Park

On Friday nights, expert staff accompany groups to walk I to the woodland reserve at dusk to see glimpses of scurrying little night creatures. these were mostly Quenda, (bandicoots) and the critically endangered Woylies, (bettongs). Before entering the reserve, we were shown an informative video of the animals that frequent the park. Each of us were issued with a red... More

I last visited Whiteman Park 17 years ago and it was a great attraction back then. Visiting it again has shown me it has improved dramatically over 17 years and it is filled with many great things to see and do.

Free entry into the park and decided to have lunch at the cafe. Had Fish and chips and daughter had a Veggie Burger and Granddaughter had a Mac and cheese. It was all lovely and enjoyed very much. We then went over to the "pool" which is unattended by lifeguards so you must accompany the little ones. It is 0.3m... More

We love whiteman park because there is such a variety of things to do and the grounds are beautigul. With small children we especially love the splashpool, the big new playground and of course a visit to the tractor museum. The volunteers at the tractor museum are lovely and there is a tractor the kids can sit on too. All... More

Thank you for the review. As you have discovered there is so much to do at Whiteman Park, and it can be an inexpensive day out for locals. Next time you visit, call into Revolutions Transport Museum there are ten interactive exhibits for the kids to enjoy, or explore the Children's Forest. More

Stopped by after going through the Swan Valley shops and went for a little walk around the township. There was plenty of picnic tables in the area which were numbered, presumably so you can pre-book an area for a gathering. Nice large open spaces with plenty of trees for shade and buggies for hire to pedal around the area. There... More
