As others reviewers have stated, this is one of the best ways to experience Australian's wildlife. Being able to touch the koala and wallaby was really fun. If you find yourself in Sydney on business and want to experience the wildlife of Australia, here's one way to easily do it. There are multiple car hire facilities in downtown. Personally, I...

Being a foreign visitor this Wildlife Park is an ideal way to be introduced to Australia's animals - Koala's, Crocodiles, Kangaroos, Wallabies, Dingos, Echidna and many more at a very reasonable entry price. Staff were polite and informative - learnt lots about Koala's. Would highly recommend a visit

We all liked this Park better than Toronga Zoo which we also enjoyed.. It is much less commercial than the zoo, and the prices are better. There was also a 20% off coupon in one of the Welcome to Sydney books which helped. Be aware that they want you to bring not only the coupon but the advertisement,. We did... More

I visited the wildlife park with my 2 year old and 1 1/2 year old. To be honest it was just a place to visit to kill time, but if you are staying nearby it is worth taking a look. It is reasonably pram friendly with plenty of hands on experience with some of the animals.

The trip to Featherdale was part of a tour and more then I expected. Wonderful selection of animals that were wandered free and you are able to feed them. The staff was knowledgeable and friendly. The gift shop was nice and the prices were reasonable for Australia.

14 of us visited; adults paid A$29.50 and the children about A$15-16. It's not a very big park but just big enough without getting lost or getting tired. The kangaroos are roaming around loose in some areas so there are plenty of photo opportunities. We even saw two of them “boxing” each other. We enjoyed taking our photo with a... More

I spent a winter Tuesday afternoon here. Plenty of opportunities to get very close to Australian marsupials and birds. The park was not overly crowded either (school term had begun). I had the privilege of seeing a baby koala from quite close quarters... It had just emerged from the pouch 4 days earlier. At around 1pm the animals seemed to... More

Great experience! For my first time in Australia I had to see the epic Koalas and Kangaroos and it looks like I hit the right spot. This park isn't too big but offers all kind of animals you are look to see, touch and feed! Very clean with some open space where Kangaroos could freely walk around. I went there... More

The zoo gets you extremely hands on with the kangaroos and wallabies, and also gives the chance to feed them. Definitely the best zoo I've been to.

An excellent wildlife park of Australian animals. You can see dozens of Australian marsupials, birds and replies in one park. Well laid out and very interactive. Several areas for visitors to feed kangaroos and wallabies. Other opportunity to touch koalas and reptiles. Impressive display of large and small birds.
