  • Featherdale Wildlife Park is a smaller wildlife park than some of the other zoos in Sydney, but its contributions to conservation make it mighty. My decision to visit Featherdale was reinforced by the...  read more »
  • Probably because the Park was the first in my trip to Australia, he left an excellent impression. Forest, koalas, Kangaroo, Wombat and penguins! Not to mention the rest of living creatures. Everything works fine-and there are Cafe and toilets and kiosks with food for kangaroos and can be photographed

  • Featherdale wildlife park allows you to get up close to, feed and even touch beautiful native Aust. Animals and Birds. Its an amazing experience. 
  • A great place to see native Australian Animals up close. Genuinely the best day out I've had at a tourist resort in my eight years living in Australia. Without doubt the best Zoo you can take young kids (as long as they are considerate when up close to Animals).
  • What a great place. Here you have a mini-zoo dedicated to Australian animals only, and they are in a very open habitat. As soon as you walk in you see wallabies and kangaroos walking around freely, and you can feed them. There is a koala bear petting attraction where you can take pictures with koalas and it is included with your admission (which is a bit pricey). The place isn't that big, but it is laid out well and you can spend a day there easily. Loved the Tasmanian devil and wombats as well.
  • What a great treasure of a Wildlife Park. Super busy as we just happened to go when the July promotion was on but despite the number of people still had an wonderful day. Due to crowds less of the kangaroos were just hopping around as they were finding the number of people a bit overwhelming but plenty that still came over to take some feed from you. Keepers very friendly and very happy to answer any of your questions. Very informative talks on the animals also - never knew until yesterday that dingos come in three colours - never would have guessed black! Love way you can have you photo taken with koala without having to pay extra. Great last day of school hols and would highly recommend.
  • I went there, i saw the full car park sign, yet i drove in because i had to drop off my 76 years old Grandma koz she cannot walk long distances. i went in the car park where the entrance was, i saw a guy got into his car i thought he was leaving so i backed up a little bit. but he wasnt going so one of the security guard pointed at me in a rude way and started walking towards my car. by his body language i can tell he was extremely angry at me. he came up and said in a very rude way and high tone "didnt you see the full car park sign?" and ask me to leave the car park immediately without even asking me why i went in the car park in the first place. Anyway for me when i am paying for a service i expect to be treated right. Next time i would rather pay $10 more plus a $17 parking fee at Taranga zoo. I hate doing business with amateur.
  • Awesome place!!! No extra price to take pic with koalas and kangaroo are jumping around so friendly that you can take a picture with hem face to face. Although it's small and limited choice of animals, it's more friendly and instruction are much more clearer than the one in Sydney centre. Highly recommend to go there while u r on your way to blue mountain. One hour there and you won't regret! This is the real zoo that everyone is expecting!
