Waminda is Aboriginal for peace and tranquillity, and that’s what animals enjoy they settle on this 11 acre farm. On the coast just 10 minutes from Geraldton (five hours north of Perth) visitors can commune with a variety of rescued creatures, among them dingoes, kangaroos, emus, parrots, ducks, geese, chickens, peacocks, horses, snakes, dog, fish and frogs. Feed the animals and pet baby kangaroos or wander about with a parrot on your shoulder. The human inhabitants of this self-sufficient sanctuary make all their own electricity, collect rainwater and try to grow most of their own vegetables and herbs. More than just a safe place for animals, Waminda is an actual way of life, with visitors encouraged to stay a night or two to really get to know the animals. With a range of accommodation options choose from the comfortable bus, camping facilities and even the chance to sleep outside under the stars. While there is no actual entry fee, owners Ian and Chaliaw rely on donations to keep the sanctuary afloat.
