Was there last year. A good place for kids to see most of the Aussie land animals besides the zoo. Also, kids will enjoy feeding the kangaroo or wallabies, hugging the koala etc. which they can't do it in the zoo.

I had read some of the negative reviews before going, and I believe these are folks who are offended by the fact that this is not a true "free range" experience. I have to laugh at the statement, since there is plenty of free range in Australia, but you have to get up and walk about to find them -... More

Kids will love this park as they can feed the wallabies/kangaroos. We went to this park by using AAT Kings day tour and I think it's worth the money. The park itself is not so big, you can take picture with koala for free but I don't think you can hold it. You can buy kangaroos/wallabies food for aud1 to... More

Admission price of $29 per adult and $16 per child s a lot to pay for very little to see. Although it is nice to have wallabys wander around and feed them, that's really about it. Picnic areas are just a few benches, no grass area and no playground. We were all done in and hour and a half. The... More

Hi Jacqui C, Thank you for your feedback and I'm sorry to hear you didn't enjoy your recent visit to Featherdale. We are home to over 2,000 animals from more than 280 different species here and there are many keeper presentations throughout the day so, it is very disappointing that Wallabies were one of the only animals you were able...

second visit for us to featherdale as local sydneysiders. pricey but worth it. the close encounters with the marsupials and reptiles, feeding the roos, toucing the koalas, snakes, lizards eetc is well worth it. the food on offer could be better but otherwise, for 2 hours, it is well worth a visit and offers a different experience compared to taronga...

There are more than two thousand creatures, both great and small- you find find them all fascinating in this popular place. There are wallabies, emus, platypuses, wombats,birds and other fauna. Around 40 species of reptiles species at its Reptilian Pavilion alone will... More

We took our adult kids there to see the Australian wildlife. It was good to be close and take pictures of kangaroos & koalas. You can even hold a koala. You can go through it in a couple of hours or stay half a day.

Featherdale features all of Australia's Fauna and as you enter you walk through an open area where wallaby's and other animals are free to roam. This gives you a chance to feed and pet them.
