This is a nice day out which is great value for money. You can stoke koalas for free and feed the kangaroos for $1. It's not a huge place but once you've gone round, stopped for a picnic lunch and browsed the shop, it can make a full day out. The staff were friendly too. I preferred this wildlife park... More

I have always preferred wild parks to zoos because the environment is more intimate, less crowded and commercialized, and it is possible to get closer to the animals. This is all true fornafeatherdale park, which is one of the best parks I have been to, and an absolute thrill. I petted a koala, and snuck a quick sniff to see... More

There are many options for viewing animals in and near Sydney, but we chose Featherdale at the suggestion of a friend who used to live in Sydney. He told us Featherdale is one of the few facilities that allows guests to interact with some of the animals at no additional cost. The park has an impressive collection of animals from... More

Being a keen photographer I decided to purchase 2 Scoopon vouchers for this place & went along with a girlfriend (also click happy) & we had a ball. The animals are well cared for & the park is set up so you are able to get some great photo memories. If taking young children the kids are able to have... More

It was a well organised, small Wildlife Park. Very clean, open and interactive. The size is not too big, kids or toddlers can just walk about independently without a stroller & not get cranky. Nice picnic area. They loved feeding the kangaroos that are hopping about. The farm animals were a hit too. Defintely worth a visit.

A nice little wildlife park with a range of Aussie creatures, but there are a lot of birds. You can stroke the koalas for free and pet the wallabies/kangaroos. A well stocked gift shop too. Worth a visit if you're in the area.

So, if you want a great chance to take a picture with a koala - which everyone that goes to Australia seems to want to do - this is the place for it. We did this as a packaged tour out to Blue Mountain. The park is small, and not that crowded - only when other buses of people came... More

The zoo was smaller than expected. But as it says, wildlife is just around you. It's fun to feed kangaroos freely. And taking photos with koalas is free of charge. A nice park to visit on the way to Blue Mountain.
