Ended a whole day tour of the Blue Mountains at Ferndale wildlife Park that was brilliant. You really get in the enclosures with the kangaroos, wallabies and emus and feed them. You see loads of Koalas and can actually get to stroke one as you have your photo taken. Great expereince

Full day tour to the Blue Mountains and Wildlife Discovery tour. My favorite part was the Wildlife Discovery Park. Lots of Koalas and yes you get photos taken with them petting their back with your own camera. Priceless. Kangaroos and wallabies everywhere and yes you can pet and feed. There are other animals as well but these were my favorite.... More

A wonderful day to the Blue Mountains. Includes a stop in a surprisingly complete wildlife park – lots of koalas and wallabies, many birds, animals, and reptiles, even a large saltwater croc. Many lookout points over the Australian Grand Canyon, greener and more lush than many such canyons. A cable car and (very steep!) train ride provide additional views. Includes... More

A sight for sore eyes. A must to see. The scenery was spectacular. This tour has everything. The cable car across Blue Mountain, the cable car down the mountain and then the visit to the zoo where you pet Kangaroos and more.

Our morning started by us going to wrong place for pick up , but got a friendly phone call to guide us in the right direction. Small group tour was amazing, morning tea and lunch ordered in advance and was waiting for us on arrival. The views from the cable car were out of this world, all commentary was informed... More

The Tour takes in some beautiful scenery and includes a thrilling cable car ride, a breath taking steep rail car trip, a wonderful boardwalk through the bush and a visit with many of Australia's native mammals, reptiles and birds. I highly recommend it. It makes great use of a day in greater Sydney.

Great views of the Blue Mountains, but the so-called wildlife park is like a kids petting zoo, with all the attendant smells and dirt, not what I would call a wildlife park! And when the driver asked for gratuities (presumably because there were no Australians on the trip who would know better) it just capped a disappointing day trip for... More

Its a full day trip which we all enjoyed. We saw the mountains, which do look blue!. We went to an animal sanctuary and actually saw Kangaroos, Koalas, Dingo and Tazmanian Devils as well as lots of indigenous birds and reptiles. We moved to various locations on Skyway and cable-car which was an experience to the rain forest, fortunately it... More
