As part of our trip to Blue Mountains, our tour guide also took us to Featherdale Wildlife Park which was a wonderful experience. At this park you see animals native to Australia and up close so that you can actually touch a kangaroo or a koala. It was fun to watch the trainer feed the penguins. It was really nice... More

Love this medium size wildlife park,there is opportunity to take photos with koalas, and even see penguins. I wouldn't know how to get here by public transport though A tip is usually those Sydney visitors guide has discounts vouchers for this place. Easily spend 2 hours here

Featherdale was part of our Blue Mountains package. We arrived just before 4 which happened to be feeding time. Amazing! The staff were interactive in explaining the animals and their habits. Everything is there. Not to be missed.

A one-stop destination where you can get to see most of the Australian animals even though the zoo is small. A good place for families and children to get up close and personal with the animals.

The place with all the australian animals you want to see on your aussie trip. If you don't like big city zoos that is the right address. Only a short ride out of town. The animals seemed to be happy and staff was very nice. Highly recommended!

Took my kid to featherdale a few Sundays ago as we only live 5 minutes away. Staff were all very pleasant and we were able to have a photo taken with one of the koalas which was an unexpected treat for my little one. Animals were all very active and the displays, whilst small were very entertaining and some animals... More

Everyone stands in line for the opportunity to have your picture made with a sleeping koala. Not very exciting but still - it was up close and personal. The park is easy to walk through and there were lots of animals you would find "down under". Wallaby, Wombats, Tasmanian Devils, etc. We went to a park similar to this one... More

For me personally I had a good experience. This park allowed me to get close to australian animals I had never seen before. With that being said the cages are VERY small. The kangaroos have the largest area where they can freely walk about however everything else needs some serious work. The poor wombats are in very small cages to... More

This is a small but very nice wildlife sanctuary offering the opportunity to get very close to the kangaroos and koalas, as well as seeing many other animals native to Australia. You can buy food for the kangaroos, and they come up to eat from your hands. It's a special experience. They even have cassowary birds, which we were not... More

This is a very educational place to get to know a number of Australian animals. I chose this place instead of Sydney Zoo because there would be opportunities for the kids to actually touch the koala and kangaroos. The animals were friendly and we could really get close to them. There's a lot of shades and benches for you to... More
