Best time to go is first thing, probably on a tour that gets you in before general opening time. You can get an hour before the hordes arrive to spend time seeing and feeding kangaroos and having a one to one photo with a koala. This really is a lovely venue where you get up close to the best in... More

We enjoyed a visit to this wildlife park - fed the kangaroos, got acquainted with wombats, petted the Koala, and got a surprise visit from from the Tasmanian Devil. He wasn't very devilish, though, just laid in the dirt - but it was a warm day.

This park is a not to be missed opportunity and especially age appropriate for young children. It is a perfect place to view up close Australian fauna. Pat a koala, kangaroo or domestic farm animals in the petting zoo section. We have attended both as a family, school excursions and Play Group outings. The paths are all manageable for all... More

We stopped at Featherdale Park on our way to Sydney, and this is just about how everyone would get to the place, I guess. The zoo is nice but I wouldn't say it's worth a day trip; however, spending an hour or two here on a sunny day might be nice. What made me feel depressed is the way they... More

Great value for money, plenty of Australia wildlife and native birds and reptiles, fantastic for children and adults, my wife loved having a cuddle with a Koala and my grandchildren although a little apprehensive at first found it exciting to feed and pat the bush wallabies and kangaroos, this is a must place to visit and well worth the trip

We visited Featherdale Wildlife Park as part of the GrayLine Bus Tour to the Blue Mountains. You can have your picture taken with Archer the Koala Bear and a kangaroo and wallaby. There are so many other animals to see - like a Tasmanian Devil and a wombat and a large number of birds. We had such a great experience... More

Stopped off at featherdale as part of a tour only had about 1 hour there but that was enough (probably need more if it was busy) Lots of native birds so a great place for bird lovers. Wallabies roam around as you walk through each section which is a great little treat, sometimes you can get really close to them.... More

This is by far the highlight of our trip coz for $29...we were able to touch and have pictures with a koala, feed and touch the kangaroos and feed the deadliest bird in the planet - the Cassowary! We went after to Taronga zoo and Wildlife Sydney Park and none of the parks would let you near much more touch... More
