Whiteman Park and Caversham Wildlife Park

Whiteman Park

Drive about 20km north-east of Perth and you will find a 4,000 hectare bushland conservation area that boasts a wide range of different activities for all the family, including a water park and a motor museum.

Purchased in 1978 by the State Government from a variety of private land owners, with the biggest being Lew Whiteman, the idea was to protect an underlying aquifer as a drinking water source for Perth. The Park was officially opened in 1986 and was named after Mr Whiteman.
