This was the highlight of our Australia trip 5 years ago so we came back on this one and weren't disappointed. The park had a totally "un-zoo" feel to it , everything feels relaxed and animals roam relatively freely. The highlight this time was a baby koala in its mum's pouch- amazing ! The cafe isn't expensive and plenty areas... More

We had a lovely day feeding the koalas and wallabies. We brought people from America and South Africa and they loved how interactive you could be with the animals. Sarah, our guide, was amazing and made sure we had a very enjoyable day!

Not just for the kids but all you adults will enjoy it plus you're allowed to hand feed the emu's. BYO you're own Bbq food if that's what you would prefer as free Bbq's are provided plus Featherdale has a kiosk. Reasonable priced. Easy to access by public transport from Blacktown and bus drops you off right out front.

Our visit to Featherdale Wildlife Park could not have been a better experience...strictly awesome. No 'zoo' housing Australian wildlife could come close to allowing you to engage the animals in the manner of Featherdale. Situated on acreage which could easily have been a housing development in a primarily residential neighborhood, Featherdale was not unlike a Phoenix in the concrete jungles... More

We had a fantastic day filled with feeding, stroking and photographing an array of beautiful birds and animals. They have an ingenious way of saving on rubbish and saving the environment, by using ice cream cones to put animal feed(dry grass) into and you can buy these for a dollar each. So instead of having plastic or paper bags/cups to... More

I cannot express how awesome this place is! You can pet and feed every kangaroo and wallaby there is available! They are the sweetest and most gentle creatures, it was amazing! The koalas are available to take a picture with but not to hold (bummer) but are also very cute. They have a great selection of other Australian animals which... More

As a tourist, when I think of coming to Australia, I think of the Opera House and Kangaroos. This is the place to go for the latter.. there's literally kangaroos and wallabies hopping around everywhere. After being given some food, they just hop right up to you and eat out of the palm of your hand. I mean... come on.... More

I will not repeat others' opinion of this unique venue that allows you direct contacts with Australian animals like koalas & kangaroos, without additional cost for an animal encounter. Be sure to pick up a $1 AU cone of food at the start of the zoo & save it for the kangaroos at the back of the zoo (near the... More

This visit was part of our last day in Australia. We had seen koalas, kangaroos, wallabies, and some of the raptors in the wild but there were many animals that are quite difficult to see otherwise. Our travel professional had booked us for this visit as part of a day tour and was something we had eagerly anticipated. Imagine petting... More
