Kangaroos in Perth, Australia

PerthEveningSkylinePerth, Australia is a beautiful city with unlimited things to do. One “must do” is a visit to the Caversham Wildlife Park which is a quick 30 minute drive outside the city proper. Although Australia has some of the most deadly creatures in all the world, they also have some of the most wonderful.

KangarooandBabyI was able to visit this beautiful “land down under” with my husband as he was there for a conference. I did quite a lot of sight-seeing and exploring while he was at his meetings by using the city’s free bus system (I think this may have clinched my love of being a “kept woman”, but I digress). You can find out more about these buses on my earlier post, Free Self-Guided Bus Tour in Perth, Australia. For the Caversham Wildlife Park, however, we were able to visit it together. It was fantastic!
