Featherdale is a must attraction to see when in Sydney. This was our third visit to the park and it keeps getting more enjoyable every-time. It is so much fun to be able to pet the kangaroos and wallabies and see all the koalas. On this visit we were able to see mother koalas with their babies clinging to them.... More

While in Aus, I had the choice to go to Featherdale, or Toranga. I've been to other zoos, and live in a city with a large, world class zoo. I really wanted to see Australian wildlife so I chose to go to Featherdale. I do not regret my choice!! Its a smaller zoo, but so much to see and do!... More

There are a couple of other places in Sydney where you can get close to Australian animals but I think this is the best. My kids loved the farm animals. Cafe quite reasonably priced

The admission price very reasonable. I loved being able to pet and feed all kangaroos and wallabies. The highlight of my day was being able to pet a koala They have lots of koalas here, as well as plenty of other animals. We spent about 2.5 hours and felt like we had seen everything. If you have children they will... More

Just outside of the city, you will truly enjoy this nature park. You can get up close and personal with the animals. Skip all those fake pictures with the blue screens, pretending that you actual got to see the native creatures of Australia. This wildlife park offers a vast array of native birds, kangaroo's of many varieties, kola bears, wombats,... More

Take yourself off to this wonderful wildlife park if you want to get up closely to some of Australia's native wildlife. Stroke a koala (Holding against the law in NSW) and take your photos standing closely to these cute and adorable marsupials. A dollar buys you an ice cream cornet of food to feed the kangaroos, wallabies and wallaroos. See... More

To compare to Taronga Zoo (apart from the price) this zoo is a lot more intimate and relaxing. You can still meet all the native animals, plus have contact with some. If you don't mind the distance from the cbd, this down to earth zoo is a great way to spend your day if you love animals.

This was a TON of fun!!! Kangaroos and wallabies roaming around that you can pet. The place was clean and the attendants were very friendly. You have an opportunity to take a photo of you and a koala up close and personal. A remarkable experience that we couldn't get enough of. It would have been nice to have longer to... More

We initially didn't think much of the Featherdale Wildlife Park because it wasn't that well publicised compared to other Sydney attractions, eg Taronga Zoo. However, that was put to rest as we entered the park and was able to get real close and real friendly with Australia's native animals. We were able to gently touch the soft fur of the... More
