Whiteman Park is a 4,000-hectare (9,900-acre; 15 sq mi) bushland area located 22 km (14 mi) north of Perth, Western Australia. The park is in the suburb of Whiteman, in the Swan Valley in the upper reaches of the Swan River. It encompasses the source of Bennett Brook - an important nyoongar location, and source of mythology of the Wagyl and stories about aboriginal occupancy of the area Whiteman Park is known for its biodiversity, including over 450 endemic plants and more than 120 vertebrate animals (some of which are rare and endangered). Over 17% of Western Australian bird species occur in Whiteman Park, including migratory birds attracted to the habitat provided by Bennett Brook and associated wetlands including Grogan's Swamp, a Conservation Category Wetland. The state government purchased the land from a variety of private owners in 1978, to protect the underlying aquifer as a drinking water source for Perth. The major owner was Lew Whiteman (1903–1994), after whom the park is named.Wikipedia

Beautiful park lands, plenty to see and do for the whole family. Went for a dogs day out, which was great! They have a fully enclosed dog exercise area. A little train runs through the grounds - great for kids - perfect for dusk kangaroo spotting!
Beautiful place, feels like you're on holiday even though you're half an hour from the city. The activities are mostly catering to children, but it's a great area for a walk in the great outdoors.
Brilliant for the family. Great cafe for a coffee if going for an early morning walk or ride. 10.00am – 3.30pm Monday to Friday (including public holidays) 8.30am – 4.30pm Saturday and Sundays
Very unhelpful. Booked at party at a shelter with 4 tables only to find on the day that one had been removed. Upon calling they informed me that no one was able to place it back. Thoroughly disappointed!
Awesome place for the family, young and old there is so much to do here. From the car museum to a train ride to simple bush walk a truly beautiful place to spend the day.
