Lots of Australian animals here as one would expect. But the highlight was the feeding area for Wallabies and little Kangaroos. They sell feed for them inside the park (AUD 1 each feed i think, not exactly sure, but its cheap). You can buy that and feed the wallabies and little kangaroos. Superb experience !! Got some of the best... More

It is my five year old sisters first time in Australia and we knew she had to see a koala and kangaroo. We came here instead of Toronga as she actually got to feed a kangaroo and touch a koala! Toronga is always so packed with tourists and you have to wait ages just to see each exhibit. Lovely day... More

A lovely day out, you do need a day. Had great opportunities to feed and stroke some of the animals, some wander free between sanctuary stations. All the family really enjoyed it, we spent 4 hours there. Take a picnic or grab a snack at the café. We travelled from Sydney Central by train then short bus ride to the... More

You want to see Koalas and kangaroos and loads of birds, this is the place to go for up close and personal interaction. Even though it is not large and a bit pricey, we got what we came for and it is was real easy taking public transportation from Sydney.

This wildlife park has a great diversity of animals with a particularly large number of aviaries (which can smell a bit). Lots of types of owls. You can carry a passport style card to check off the sites with animal themed stamps available at each distinctive venue. There are many unusual animals that are not seen in other parts of... More

My wife and I are wildlife lovers. We were disappointed in how few Australian animals we had seen on our visit(mostly the East Coast). We had experienced the Taronga Zoo in Sydney and were not that impressed. We arrived at Featherdale as part of a Blue Mountains Tour. We didn't expect it, but this was the highlight of our day...

As an European I can say a dream came true when I could touch koalas and feed kangaroos. I had in front of me animals I had always been told about. I really loved the park. It's not a zoo. Kangaroos are free to move and so are part of the birds. Wonderful. Don't miss it!
