I have been to Featherdale on a number of occassions and always found it a great place to visit with children. They can get very close to many of the birds and animals. You can feed the kangaroos as wll as other animals in the petting farm section. This is a great day out for kids from 0 to 100.... More

If your looking for something to do when you are traveling in Sydney, I couldn´t recommend anything more exciting than going to Featherdale Wildlife Park. The park allows you to get really close to the animals and even pet some of them. The best part of the day was defiantly to feed and pet the kangaroos.(you´ll have to pay 1... More

Such a cool place. We went here on a day tour of the blue mountains. We wish we could have stayed longer than 1.5 hrs. Such a fun place. It's so cool to see the animals out in the open with you and being able to feed them was a lot of fun. Don't get too caught up feeding the... More

Easily accessible via bus service from bus stand no # 9 at Blacktown train station, which is a 10 minutes bus ride before arriving at the site. Facilities available which were convenient to visitors were washrooms, small cafe and souvenir shop. There were plenty of direction signage to navigate visitors around so that they were sure they have been to... More

All ages will be fascinated by the animals and their antics at this great attraction for locals and visitors. My grandson aged 3 took a little while to warm to the situation. From needing to be encouraged to feed the wallabies and watch the kangaroos, he became focused on the Tassie Tigers running in circles and the koala nestling against... More

We have many visitors from overseas and this is our first place of call to touch a kangaroo, hold a koala. Eat lunch with a native birds. see the fairy penguins and a monster of a crocodile. Not as spectacular as Taronga Park Zoo but more intimate.

This wildlife park has to be my favourite. Not only are there the usual suspects (koalas, kangaroos etc.) but a great reptile display and even a crocodile. My 5 year old grandson particularly likes the baby animal farm where he can pet goats, sheep, calves, chickens etc. So much fun for the city child. The cafeteria has a good range... More

Lovely day was had by all. Lots of animals to be seen. Great way to ensure you have seen everything is the passport given on entry, you have to collect the stamps on the way round, and stamp the passport. Chance to get up close to a koala and give one a stroke, while posing for a picture. Food available... More

This really is a wonderful place to experience Australian wild life up close.Of course everyone loves to get their picture taken with a koala and here they do it for free. The koala is not stressed in anyway and sits on its tree while you get close, touch gently and have a photo.They also rotate the animals so they take... More

I was so excited to visit this zoo and it did not disappoint! I am from the United States and I was hoping to pet some Australian natives, which the zoo's website promised. I was able to pet the koala's butt. This was ok but I was hoping to be able to hold one. The keepers explained that was against... More
