We had a few hours up our sleeve, so we decided to run out to Featherdale with our granddaughter. We were last here around 2 years ago, and noticed some improvements to layouts and facilities.

Clean and well kept wildlife park. Not too big area but have many types of wildlife animals kept here. A fun place to bring young children to see wildlife animals. Only set back is all animal are kept in small protected area so can't really feel the freedom for the animals.

We visited Featherdale and it was one of the better wildlife parks we visited in Australia. We hand fed Kangaroos and Wallabies, we took pictures with a Koala and my daughter got to cuddle with a wombat. This is not a big park but it was a very intimate experience with the animals. If you go, try to go with... More

Total time of journey is approx. 45 minutes including train and bus. Admission was around $30. well worth it - in this... More

Visited Featherdale in 2012 and loved it! All the animals are well cared for and enjoying life, a great place to get up close to all of them! Loved feeding the kangaroo's and having my picture with the Koala's! Will be visiting again in 2017 for sure!

Great for all ages, so good being able to feed the animals, but hold on tight to the cone containers as the animals just love these. Great friendly staff throughout the Park. Nice inexpensive Cafe and Gift Shop.

Hi there, Thanks for the great score! The "roo's" certainly do like pinching the cones. We recommend pouring the roo food into your hand and feeding them directly from your hand instead! Cheers, Maxwell Love Featherdale Wildlife Park More

Once again we took our visitors to Featherdale and,as always, they were enthralled at seeing so many Aussie animals and birds up so close. We never tire of going and have delighted so many of our visitors too.

Very friendly atmosphere in this family zoo. Has a good collection of animals and conveniently located not far from the city. It suits people from all age groups - you could either chose to spend 30 mins or hours depending on your preference. Would recommend this if you are travelling out to the west from the city.

We spent eight days in the Sydney area, and this was the highlight of the trip for me. It's small, only covers about 7 acres in the middle of a neighborhood, but it provides a big experience. There is a lot of hands on interaction with many of Australian animals and plenty of staff for presentations and Q&A. The only... More
