The variety of birds & animals are terrific from the prolific variety of birds to the cassowaries , wombats, bats & of course the big croc. It is a good place for overseas visitors if... More

We were looking for a wildlife experience on the spur of the moment that was close to home and we found it in Featherdale Park. Reasonably small, but packed with all sorts of indigenous birds and animals. As a native Australian I wasn't even aware we had so many different types of owls, much less had seen them. After the...

This is a wonderful Wildlife Park and they have an amazing number of native animals to see. You can get your picture taken with a kola bear, but no touching. Kola is on a tree eating and you stand close behind them to get picture. You can use your own camera to take pictures, but they also take pics for... More

Since I love animals I enjoyed myself visiting this place. Saw a variety of birds which I have never seen before. Was thrilled to see the Dingo and the Tasmanian Devil. The kangaroos were friendly, the koala were not interested in us even when we were patting them. The Tasmanian Devil was just running around in the cage like a... More

Finishing our day trip to the Blue Mountains we saw signs for Featherdale on the highway. We decided to go and found it very easy to follow all their road directions as oppose to having the GPS guide us. At $30/pp, you get a lifetime worth of memories. The moment you get in, you are greeted by little animals, who... More

Dear Emma w, Thank you for stopping in at Featherdale on your way back from the Blue Mountains. It's great to see you enjoyed getting up close to and interacting with our Aussie animals. They certainly are more active around feeding time so we make sure to spread our feeding encounters throughout the day to ensure there's always plenty of... More

I always recommend our overseas visitors - especially those with children - visit Featherdale Wildlife Park if they want to see our native animals. It gives me an excuse to visit it again. They have an impressive selection of native animals plus quite an extensive collection of birds and other wildlife. There is a picnic area with tables if you... More

I love animals and if I ever feel like getting my fix of cute and furry friends, Featherdale is my choice of venue. You can really get up close to most of the animals there and for kids it would be ideal as you can pat Kookaburras, owls, koalas, kangaroos and even emus (if they'll let you). I thoroughly recommend... More

The staff that work at Featherdale wildlife park seemed really friendly. As a British man on a working holiday visa who loves animals, it was the perfect place to be. Lots of native Australian animals with many amazing encounters with Kangaroos/Wallabies and Koala Bears. Very good value for money, considering that Toronga Zoo (although it was amazing there too) charged... More

The park is easily accessible from Sydney and gives a memorable experience as you hand-feed the wallabies, kangaroos and take a selfie with the koalas.

Well worth the visit to get up close and personal with the Koalas, Kangaroos, and all the others. Easy to get to with Sydney's great train and bus systems. This was at the top of my list of Things to Do and I was not disappointed!
