Loved our visit to the wildlife park. There were 50 kangaroos to feed and you got to pet the Kuala bears. This park is very large and has nearly all the indigenous animals and hundreds of birds of Australia. We had so much fun. The park was clean and the workers were very friendly.

No kidding!! Other zoos in the Sydney area let us see koalas and if we paid extra be photographed with them but Featherdale lets you actually pet them!!! And they'll even take photos for you with your own camera. No extra charges. No long waits. Easy to get around, with a flat circular layout. Opportunities to hand feed wallabies and... More

The best thing about this zoo is how you get to be so close to interact with the animals. The koala and wallaby exhibits are the Best! Go on a rainy day and take an umbrella to avoid the crowds. It is perfect!

We saw all types of animals, and a croc ate a chicken, snakes slithering around behind glass, and kangaroos and koalas waiting for us to bet their behinds. This was some of the most fun we had on our entire trip, and they deserve all the donations they get. Help them out, they are GREAT!!!!

Featherdale is a small wildlife park on the outskirts of Sydney. It is so worth the visit. It has small Australian animals in it. The Kangaroos roam free and you can stroke them all,there are Koalas which are so cute and you can have your photo taken with one. There are places to eat and drink or take your own... More

We have been to a number of wildlife parks down under. This is by far the best. We loved the echidnas, the little penguins, the wombats, the croc, ghost bats, the friendly wallabies and of course the koalas. Go there early before 10. There will be mini shows every 15 minutes. The park is compact enough to walk to a... More

Really nice park well run and not overcrowded the Rangers really do look after the animals well and ensure people don't get over excited, especially around the koalas. Pictures are well organised. Lovely gift shop.

I loved visiting this park. Interacting with kangaroos, koalas and wallabies was an amazing experience. The birds section is incredible. Despite the heat I stayed as long as possible, until they closed. Oh! I forgot: try to be present for the various presentations of the animals throughout the park. It's worth it (I particularly enjoyed the Tasmanian devil).
