It's still open but quite run down. A better bet is Featherdale Wildlife Park.

You cannot hold koalas in NSW.

I think wildlife world at darling harbour, or Taronga Zoo would be better options. They both offer pictures with koalas and are way easier to get to.

Wildlife world has just Australian animals while Taronga also has international animals

If you want to take a bus, you can get one from Stand S in Clarence St ( one block behind Wynyard Station)

Take any of these buses 600, 631, 632, 633, 642, 642X. The trip is about half an hour. Tell the driver you want to get off at the Koala Park Sanctuary.

But, I have to agree with the other respondents - it's a bit tried and run down these days and I rarely see many cars parked in the car park. Their big koala out the front is in serious need of a makeover ;-)

Best for koalas is Australian Reptile Park on the central coast. A peaceful little zoo with lots of native animals, they let us get photos with the koalas at the end of the day.

Have a look at this link - Sydney Wildlife is in Darling Harbour. You can get your photo taken with a Koala or pat a Koala (with photo) and you may even be able to have "breakfast with the Koalas"

wildlifesydney.com.au/explore/…

As for holding them .. I'd be worried about their claw digging in ... and the fact that they may relieve themselves on you whenever they feel the need...who recalls that "incident" with a politician when a Koala let him have "it" ? lol
