This is my friends, and I first trip to a Western Country. We had already checked the weather before we depart to Perth, the weather temperature will be around 20-30 degree Celsius during our journey. As we arrived there, the weather was pretty cooling. At 6.a.m plus in the morning, that day marked the start of our adventure to discover this unfamiliar country. After we had settled our luggage and breakfast, we decided to head to Caversham Wildlife Park first.
While we’re on our way to Caversham Wildlife Park, I found out that the weather there was totally different in comparison to weather in Malaysia. Although the weather was around 30 degree, we felt the cooling breeze of the wind with the scorching sun shining brightly in the sky. Luckily I had my sunblock; else I would be afraid of getting a darker skin. Despite the hot weather, the bright blue sky made our photos look appealing with very nice contrast. After browsing through the photos, no matter how hot it was, it is worth it.
从我们所居住的酒店要前往凯维森野生动物园必须要转车，所以我们决定买家庭票（澳币12.10元），那我们便可以不分次数的在一天内搭乘付费巴士及火车。可是他们的家庭票只允许7个人使用 – 2个大人和最多5个小孩一起搭乘，所以在没办法之下我们唯有多买一张成人日票（澳币12.10元）。到达珀斯站后，我们便坐上Midland线的火车前往Bassendean站。到了Bassendean站，我们还必须到17720号的巴士站去等955号巴士。大家要记得站在正确的巴士站去等，不然就算你看到了你要搭乘的巴士，司机也不会停下来在你的。
From the motel to Caversham Wildlife Park, we needed to take buses and trains, so we decided to buy the Family Plus Ticket which can be used for an unlimited duration of time in a day for buses and trains. But their Family Plus Ticket (AUD 12.10) can only use for 7 person – max 2 adults and 5 children at once. We have no other choice but to buy an extra ticket (AUD 12.10) since we were a group of 3. As we arrived at Perth station, we took the Midland Line’s train to Bassendean Station. After that, we waited at no. 17720 bus station and took the bus no. 955. Please remember to wait at the right bus station; else the bus driver will not stop for you.
其实我们也不确定到底要在哪个站下车，只知道是 “Lord Street Before Youle-Dean Road” 站，所以我们便问了司机一下。大家别担心他们的司机会不喜欢或骂我们，因为他们的司机都很善良，很乐意帮助及回答我们的问题。也因为我们有问司机我们要去的站到了吗？所以到站后司机都会叫我们，让我们下车。
We also didn’t know which is the exact station we need to go down from the bus; we just knew that we need to get off the bus at ‘Lord Street Before Youle-Dean Road’ station. Luckily we were brave enough to ask the driver whether we reached the station already or not so that the driver knew where we want to go and tell us when we reach the station and let us go down from the bus. You do not need to afraid of the driver will scold you or unhappy if you go and ask them a question because they are so kind and willing to help.
当我们从巴士上下来后便看到他们的招牌 ‘白人园’ 了。你可以选择坐他们园内的巴士（如我没有记错，须付澳币2元）或走1.9公里的路进去。我们当然是为了风景而选择了步行进去。可是当我们和漂亮的风景拍完照，过了一会儿后，我们便后悔了，因为天气实在是太热了。
Once we got down on the bus, you will see the Whiteman Park signboard. You can choose to wait for a shuttle bus from the park (need to pay AUD2 per person if I’m not mistaken) or just walk 1.9km. We decided to walk inside just because of the scenery. But after a while when we finish taking the photo with the beautiful scenery, we regretted, because the sun was too hot for us to bear.
After the long walking, we reached the ticket’s counter. We can’t wait to see the Kangaroo and Koala after buying the tickets (Adult’s ticket – AUD27). This was also the reason why we choose to come to Caversham Wildlife Park. You can see many animals other than Kangaroo and Koala. We reached the Koala in a short while according to the map of the park. Koalas are so cute and lazy, other than eat and sleep, it will still eat and sleep. But after seeing the real Koala, I knew that Koala is not as small as what I imagine, they are ‘big’ too.
After the Koala, we went for the Kangaroo. Haha, Kangaroos are lazy too. They just lie down there and rest. When I saw those Kangaroo’s Mother, I feel touching, because they are so great. No matter how heavy is their baby, they will still carry their baby in their ‘pocket’ although the ‘pocket’ almost touches the ground. No wonder they always lie down there and rest, they are exhausted.
看完了袋鼠，大家都被 ‘热’ 地累了。。所以看完了到此一游的目的后，我们便决定先回酒店去休息了。我们大概休息了2个小时过后便有往外跑了。这次当然是去附近看看有没有道地美食和漂亮的风景啦！我们在酒店附近坐上免费的巴士到珀斯的钟楼去看看。珀斯的钟楼真的很漂亮，夕阳照耀下和吹大风之时完全是不一样的景色。还好我们去的时候可以看到这个变化。
After Kangaroos, we decided to go back to the hotel and rest, just because we felt so tire after ‘burn’ under the sun. After resting around 2 hours, we went out for local food and scenery again. We took a free bus near our motel to The Bell Tower, Perth. The Bell Tower is really beautiful, the scenery under the evening sun and wind are totally different. Luckily we get to see the scenic view changes in the same place.
If you decided to come next time, I would suggest you take the plane which arrives here around noon. So you wouldn’t feel so tired while travelling and exploring around.
* 我们住的酒店是’Bailey’s Motel’。The motel that we stay is ‘Bailey’s Motel’.
