It’s day 3 and today (17 March 2015) we were all by ourselves. Adam was busy with his classes so we will only see him for dinner. Off we went to Caversham Wildlife Park.
After breakfast, we drove to Whiteman Park which is where Caversham is located. The journey took us about 30 minutes from Perth CBD. It is a big open park and most of the animals are not in small cages like the zoo.
Once we enter the Whiteman Park, we had to drive masuk ke dalam lagi to reach the Caversham Wildlife Park.
Entering the park. Kat depan ni ada banyak tahi kangaroo which I think they all buat baja kot for the grass. Z said “eh macam taik adik je ni..sama laaa!” OMG adik that’s TMI! Aiyoo!! Haha!
The park is nicely shaded with big trees, tak terik kena matahari. Nice!
It’s an open space where the kangaroos roam freely, they kept hopping towards us for food. Mulanya me and the boys cuak gak. IY siap terjerit-jerit terkejut. Tapi lama-lama when dah warm up, he enjoyed the experience very much.
IY getting the hang of it. Suka dia when they came hopping towards him for food.
Budak ni sampai sudah takut nak hulur tangan dia. Dia dok risau kangaroo gigit katanya. Haha! Tapi tak takut pulak nak pat the kangaroo. He will just tabur the food on the ground and let them eat sendiri. This is Z proudly saying “Tengok ni! Dia makan yang adik kasi ni!”
If you know me, I’m not an animal person. I am scared and geli of animals. Not geli yuck but geli tickle. So this, ladies and gentleman, is an achievement for me! Yay! I fed the roo. Still can’t believe that I did this.*lap peluh*
He’s a natural. Relax je dia. Agaknye kalau boleh peluk cium gomoi pun dia nak kot. Hehe!
One for the album!
We were lucky to come early in the morning when the kangaroos are still hungry. When we came in the second time before we went home which was almost noon, they were not as excited to see us. Dah kenyang kot. Semua pun asyik melepak je tak peduli pun kat food. So if you are coming to Caversham, make sure you come early ya!
There was also a farm show at 10am. We were a little bit late sebab spend too much time feeding the kangaroos. So sempat watched the last part of the sheep shearing. Then they had the bottle feed lamb activity and the best part was Gee and IY did the cow milking. Me and Z tak sempat sebab the cow peed in the middle of the milking session! Bertempiaran semua lari sebab the cow kencing. Macam pipe pecah!! Although the staff did clean the floor and the milking session resumed, I dah malas nak beratur balik. We moved on to the sheep.
IY milking the cow. He said “lembut lembik je Ma. Abang rasa geli” Z on the other hand tak percaya when we said susu dia comes from this cow.
The wool sangat soft and the one yang dah togel belakang tu kulit dia oily because it’s covered with lanolin.
We didn’t get to take a proper pictures with the koala. The koala area was crowded with people and it was time for the koalas to sleep. I could see that the animals there are all well taken care of. Nevertheless, the boys had the chance to see and pat them.
Kerja dia makan and tidur je. Time spent with visitors are only 1/2 hour a day for each koala. They rest of the time they sleep and eat. And they feed on eucalyptus leaves. I love the smell of eucalyptus!
Z loves to pat animals. dia sapu bulu koala tu and said “comel je dia ni kan?”
Mula-mula we pat like this with our palm. Then the staff advised us to pat with the back of our hands.
After the koala, we spent the rest of the park time with other animals and before we went home, we had another round of kangaroo feeding. It was lunch time and we were starving! Although the park serves halal food, we were not really into it. So we decided to head back to the city for lunch.
We were amazed to see this sign at the park near the cafe. Nevermind the grammar mistakes but wow they must have A LOT of Malay visitors to come up to this. Even Chinese sign pun takdak. But we bought ice creams and drinks je pun.
So that concludes our Caversham visit. In the next entry, it’s the King’s Park story. Stay tuned!
