Discover Voucher
Jun 2021 • Friends
Decided to use our Discover Voucher at Featherdale which is a local Sanctuary to us which we hadn’t been too.
We enjoyed looking at the different birds 🦅 🦢 and other Australian Wildlife 🐨 🦆🦉🦇 We were going to buy food there but we found it expensive.
Gift/Souvenir shop had a good range of items.

A very enjoyable day out
May 2021
Enjoyed seeing so many beautiful birds & the koalas were a highlight

The farmyard enclosure consisted of pens some of which were a bit small but the animals seemed happy & were very friendly

I was hoping to see a big crocodile but he was so small and half hidden

All in all a great day out for an older couple & not too much walking involved

Food at the cafe wasn't that good for what you pay & the coffee could be better but didn't have to wait long

Fantastic feathered friends

An amazing array of furry and feathered friends. All seemingly content in extremely clean enclosures with plenty to eat and entertain. Excellent day out.

Good day but could have been better
Apr 2021
Took our three grand children to Featherdale Wildlife Park. Venue was very busy. Was impressed with amount of Australian birds and animals that were on show. The children enjoyed getting close to animals and birds.. The only problem was when I went to get some drinks and something to eat. There were not enough staff on duty especially as it was school holidays and the wait was much too long. The poor boy on the cash register was doing his best with no help. Even after ordering the wait was just as long to receive Evan a cup of coffee, Really need to look at this problem.

I give 5 stars to Featherdale wildlife park.

A place where the visitors have the best experience whilst all the animals comfort and safety are never compromised.

Staff are friendly + animals in clean natural environment = experience of a life time.

Long lines. Disappointing.
Apr 2021 • Family
Went on Easter Monday, that was a mistake. Lined up in the sun for 45 minutes to get in. No social distancing at all.

Waited another 45 minutes in the cafe line of 30-40 people to be served by one server with two helpers just standing behind them. Would have been better to open up another register maybe. Food - horrible.

If we would return it would be with a packed lunch and not during school holidays or a weekend.

Park in need of an update, anything interesting to encounter costs extra so there’s no value in your overpriced entry ticket.

The café and toilets are really bad, meat pies in packaging heated in microwave, and toilets that haven’t been updated in decades. This park needs some love

Up close and personal
Mar 2021
A great place to see the wildlife of Australia up close and personal. We went as part of a day trip to the Blue Mountains with Anderson Tours and it was a great addition. We were able to experience the animals in a personal way and even feed the Kangaroo. Highly recommend spending some time at the Featherdale Sydney Wildlife Park.

Lovely day out with Grandchild
Feb 2021
Easy to get to, lots of parking, arrived early with grandchild to attend the 20 minute free pre-booked hands on wildlife session for pre-schoolers where we met a tawny frogmouth and a woma python. This session enabled us to have a discounted $10 Pat a Koala Encounter which included a beautiful photo.
We traversed the park along the pathways and met lots of the animals and birds, including animals not in enclosures. They enjoyed the food we had purchased to hand feed them.
Staff were really friendly and helpful, from the lady at the ticket office to the staff tending to the animals and the lady working on her own at the cafe.
The only downside is the pigeons stealing food from the animals and leaving droppings everywhere. Perhaps something can be done about this.

We greatly appreciate your wonderful feedback and look forward to seeing you again on future visits to Featherdale.
