Hi BosoxKen, Thank you so much for taking the time to review your visit to Featherdale! Your tip about visiting the Wallabies/Roo's at the back of the park is certainly a good one. There is an abundance of excited but content Wallabies and Kangaroos that really love to interact with guests. We wish you safe and happy travels! Maxwell Love... More

A very interesting venue to visit, apparently it started off several years ago as a sort of clinic for injured birds etc, it kind of snowballed into people bringing their pets etc to the clinic, mainly by elderly persons who could no longer look after their exotic pets etc. There is quite a selection of wildlife to observe now, even...

Hi Matt, Thank you for taking the time to review your visit to Featherdale.

We certainly do take in many injured animals, however we pride ourselves on our... More

We stopped off here on the way back from seeing the Blue Mountains which was disappointing in itself as we'd paid for a trip to see the Blue Mountains for a full day and but we only got 3 hours there. We visited Featherdale Wildlife Park whilst on the way back into Sydney and after visiting Australia Zoo a few... More

Felt like all the animals are in their natural habitat. One stop place to explore all native wild life. Slightly cheaper entry fee would have made it perfect.

I came here just last saturday and I haven't been since a couple of years ago. Some things have changed.. Pros: • A lot more to see and walk around • The animals all look healthy, they have pretty decent sized enclosures and some even get to walk around freely • Couple of zookeepers are around and will happily tell...

Hi Sahvanna, Thank you for taking the time to review your visit! Your comments are greatly appreciated. We still pride ourselves on being Sydney's ultimate hands-on wildlife experience, however the well-being of the animals is always our number one priority and encounter opportunities vary each day. Still, handfeeding Wallabies and Kangaroos is often the highlight! Happy travels, Maxwell Love Featherdale... More

Get a taste of what the continent offers with this zoo. Wide variety of creatures to suit all ages. Option to purchase picture with koala is about as close as you can to most animals. If not crowded, might get a chance to touch some when presenting informative talks throughout the day.

We stopped by at Featherdale on our way to Blue Mountain. It is a good experience for the kids. You can feed kangaroos their food in ice cream cone. Take photos with native animals in Australia.

Featherdale Wildlife Park was our personal favorite of the Sydney Blue Mountain tour. Everything about visiting the park is magical including the once-in-a-lifetime experience to get up close and personal in a photo with an adorable koala bear! They even let you pet the koala which is something of a rarity in Sydney due to strict animal handling guidelines. The... More

While this zoo is manageable in a shorter period of time, but we spent the better part of a day here. Be sure to go to the feedings, get your picture with a koala (no holding in NSW, but you can touch and get as close as holding), and spend a couple dollars to feed the wallabies and pademelons yourself....

There is a lot of kind of birds here. Other than that there is a lot of kangaroo here too. If you want your kids to play around with kangaroo you should visit here. The kids really enjoy themselves playing with the kangaroo and watching the koala.
