Where to see wildlife in Perth with a Perth Airport Car Rental banner

Perth in Western Australia has a multitude of natural and wildlife wonders to explore. Discover koalas, kangaroos and other unique creatures. Hop in your Perth Airport car rental from Hertz and head for one of these attractions to experience the local fauna.

Caversham Wildlife Park

Australia has some truly unique native animals and this is a great way to get to know some of them. There are countless fascinating bird species to familiarise yourself with, plus of course the resident koalas and kangaroos to name a few more. Caversham Wildlife Park & Zoo also has one of the biggest collections of native fauna in Western Australia. It is in Whiteman Park, Swan Valley, about half an hour’s drive northeast of the city.

Perth Zoo

Just five minutes from the centre of the city, Perth Zoo is a true Western Australian icon, open every day of the year. Here you’ll find beautiful gardens and exhibits, filled with more than 1,200 animals. Local wildlife abounds in the Australian Walkabout and Australian Wetlands. For more exotic species from far flung lands, make a beeline for the Asian Rainforest to see elephants, tigers, and orangutans, or the African Savannah in pursuit of rhinoceros and lions.


There are free talks by zookeepers and chances to feed animals including giraffes. The newest exhibit is Jungle School, a spectacular immersive boardwalk experience designed to highlight the colony of Sumatran Orangutans, which are critically endangered. Plus, with summer around the corner, the zoo puts on many events over the season with a brimming events calendar.

Peel Zoo

Half an hour’s drive south from Perth, Peel Zoo is a boutique zoo set alongside the Murray River. This privately funded wildlife sanctuary is famous for its personal approach. Peel Zoo offers a truly hands on experience – whether you want to pat a dingo or a Tasmanian devil. There are more than 100 kinds of birds and animals here, from koalas to wombats, birds to snakes and reptiles. The enormous walk through aviary is a highlight. Peel Zoo also runs a Tasmanian Devil breeding programme. Bring a hamper for a picnic and make the most of the free BBQ facilities onsite. The walkways are also wheelchair and walking frame friendly, making it easy to get around.
