Abandoned Marapana Wildlife Park, Perth, WA

Abandoned Marapana Wildlife Park in Perth, Western Australia│Abandoned World Photography Urbex

Marapana Wildlife Park used to be a hotspot for families and children to enjoy nature, the outdoors and the exquisite animals that can be found in Western Australia.

For any newcomer to Australia, like myself, this attraction would have been the perfect place to see animals such as camels, koalas, crocodiles, kangaroos and snakes up close. Many of the animals were in enclosures and others roamed freely, looking for cuddles and treats. Photoshoots and cuddles with koalas were at top favourite which people paid $20 a pop for.

The park closed in 2012 due to an on sell to a sand mining company. Enjoy the photos and if anyone has memories or snaps of the park when it was operation please feel free to share them in the comments below!

      Had planned to take great grandies there for birthday party and was astounded that it has been sold to quarry for sand. What an absolute disagrace.
