Australia is famed around the world for its rich and varied wildlife. Some around the world like to talk about the crocodiles, spiders and other creepy crawlies. But if you own real estate in Bunbury, then you probably know Australia has so much more weird and wonderful – not to mention cuddly – critters to offer.
In fact, owners of real estate in and around Bunbury are reminded of this every day, thanks to the Bunbury Wildlife Park located on Prince Philip Drive. The park has seen a 44 per cent increase in revenue over the 2013/14 period, along with a 10 per cent increase in admission and a 65 per cent spike in cafe sales.
Clearly, Bunbury residents have been making the most of the delightful Australian wildlife at their fingertips.
"The Park has seen some major improvements and a substantial increase in visitors," said park manager Kristina Knight in a 12 August release.
"We think this will only grow as more upgrades are made. It is a fantastic place for families and children love being able to feed the animals."
Animals at the park include fauna as diverse as wombats, birds, lizards, snakes and, of course, kangaroos.
The park has seen the addition of new reptile exhibits and a new wombat enclosure, and is set to get a new emu enclosure.
