Enjoy a tour of Kaarakin! We are one of the Perth hills’ most unique wildlife parks, specialising in the rescue, conservation and rehabilitation of black cockatoos. As a guided walking tour, you’ll get to:

  • Learn about our black cockatoo rehabilitation program from rescue to return to the wild.
  • Meet some resident black cockatoos. These birds would have trouble surviving in the wild, so live at Kaarakin as active ambassadors for their species.
  • Visit the kangaroos. They might come for a nibble too if you’re lucky.
  • See the dingoes. Discover how they’re different from dogs.
  • Spy the emus. There’s some other free roaming birds that you might see too, including ducks and peacocks.
  • Come inside the interactive aviary to get up close to some black cockatoos*. These resident birds are curious, gentle and friendly. You can hand feed them some gumnuts. Be ready to be sat on.

The tour runs for 75 minutes as a gentle walk with several stops.

For something more, we also host Bird Bonanzas which include a guided bird-watching bushwalk, becoming a 3 hour experience all up.

Add a dingo encounter to personally meet a furry friend too if you like.

As always, bookings are required. Numbers are limited and can fill quickly, so get to it!
