Enjoy sheep shearing demonstrations, trying milking a cow, or bottle-feed a cute lamb. There’s also the chance to crack a stock whip, swing a billy, and watch sheepdogs as they herd the resident flock.
Goats are sociable animals and therefore become depressed if they are separated or isolated from their companions, however, they are not flock-orientated like sheep.
They are one of the cleanliest animals and are much more selective feeders than cows, sheep, pigs, swine and even dogs.
Goats are very intelligent and curious animals. Their inquisitive nature is exemplified in their constant desire to explore and investigate anything unfamiliar which they come across.
Goats have always been considered very useful animals. Goats success is related to its excellent adaptability to the difficult mountain conditions, extreme weather and low-value feed acceptance, versatile habits and high production considering their size. These are some reasons because goats are among the first animals to be domesticated.
Caversham Wildlife Park introduces visitors to the unique selection of wildlife in Western Australia, from iconic native species to farm animals and rich birdlife.

Boer Goat facts
The Boer goat is a breed of goat that was developed in South Africa in the early 1900s and is a popular breed for meat production. Their name is derived from the Afrikaans word Boer, meaning farmer. The Boer breed is characterized by a redhead and red on at least a portion of the neck, with a white body. They have large pendulous ears. Some breeders have chosen to breed and promote solid colour Boers, but there is little scientific evidence that they have any unique merit in productivity. They are living in Australia and New Zealand.
Boer Goat were first imported into the United States about 1994 from Australia and New Zealand.
About Caversham Wildlife Park
David and Pat own and operate Caversham Wildlife Park with their son David & daughter Debbie.
When they purchased the park in 1988, the park housed a small collection of animals and birds on a modest 5 acre (2ha) property. A few years later, the park doubled in size, when the family purchased the adjoining property and the collection started to boom. In May 2003, the family designed and built a new park in Whiteman Park, once again, more than doubling in size.
