About Whiteman Park, Whiteman
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

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.
It took us a while to cycle there. When you go into the park by bike quietly, you can see many wild kangaroos. They would stop and freezed. Really cute. Don't harm them or feed them. It's a huge park with wonderful natural scenery. BBQ area offered.
It was awesome. We took the train, we took the tram, we had a picnic and we had a blast. Do visit the park if you are nearby.
Great big park with free summer water play park, BBQs and tractor museums and much more. Well worth a trip.
