Cohunu Koala Park


Get up close and personal with Australia’s cutest and cuddliest furry animal, the koala! Pose for a souvenir photo for a day you won’t forget. The free roam nature of Cohunu means you can wander the park at your leisure, hand feeding the animals that you meet on your way, like emu’s, wallabies, goats and alpacas. Hop on the miniature railway* for a Safari ride around the park and keep an eye out for the giant dinosaur statues along the way!

Blaze a Trail


A geocache trail that is!

Screen time doesn’t have to be confined to four walls. Grab the kids and smart phones and head to the Geocache trails of Armadale for a real life scavenger hunt.

Discover epic art murals and historic monuments around the town centre as you solve clues to crack the code at the end of the trail.

Prefer a bushland ramble? Head to Armadale Settlers Common to embark on an adventure through towering Jarrah Forest to find the hidden cache.

Download the Geocaching app on your device or pop into the Perth Hills Armadale Visitor Centre at 40 Jull Street to get started.
