|Land area||14 ha (35 acres)|
The park was established by the Sorbello family as Cohuna Wildlife Park at the former East Martin site in 1972-1973 (although may have existed on a previous site since 1969). The park's koala colony was established in 1982 at Mills Park Road in Gosnells, with four koalas from South Australia. In 2005, the park was moved to Nettleton Road, Byford. Its koala colony now has over 25 koalas.
Between 10 am and 4 pm daily, visitors to the park may be photographed cuddling a koala, at an additional charge. Visitors are also permitted to touch and hand feed various other park animals.
