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
