Went with my sister and my 9 year old nephew on a slightly wet Sunday morning. Just excellent from the moment you walk in and get to hold a live snake to getting a photo taken for free with a koala. You get a chance to get seriously close to some great Australian animals. My family were visiting from the... More

We stopped off on our way to the Blue Mountains. We had visited Taronga Zoo the previous day and Featherdale, for Australian species, is far superior. For people with limited mobility the park is very wheelchair/limited mobility friendly. Far better than the slopes and steps of Taronga Zoo which my wife found very hard work. Also, for children, Featherdale is... More

Within easy distance of the city centre Featherdale Wildlife Park provides an informative and hands on experience with Australian native wildlife. Compressed in a small area it is easy to navigate and follow the keepers around as they give informative talks on the wildlife. A great day for all the family.

I had never been to featherdale before but I found it to be a great experience with younger children than trying to take them around a big zoo. Lots to see, feed the kangaroos and touch koalas, a must for overseas visitors.

Visited Featherdale with my 4 adult (20something) children in early January 2017 and we absolutely loved it!! We took the train from central Sydney to Blacktown station and then a short cab ride from station to the park. The park has only native Australian animals and many of them are roaming free within the park. We purchased several cones of... More

Probably one of the better wildlife/zoos we have experienced. You get to have a lot of hands on contact and get to see many varieties of the native animals. Wonderful afternoon!

Having been to the large zoo in Sydney this was a total surprise! It is completely shaded as large trees cast their shadow protecting animals and the walkways from the searing heat. Wallabys lay in the path and are happy to be stroked and fed. Food is provided for this purse. This is one of the best zoos we've ever... More
