  • This isn’t a wildlife park, it’s a zoo, with nearly all of the animals kept in cages and pens. I just wanted to leave as soon as possible and was quite distressed by the experience.  more »
  • Wonderful staff who educate visitors on the local wildlife. Your whole family will enjoy the experience of interacting with the animals.  more »
  • Have your picture taken with a koala, watch a Tasmanian Devil run in circles, marvel at the colorful birds, and on and on. Featherdale puts you right among the wildlife.  more »

  • Lovely this place will deffinatly go again. Great day out for all the family for a reasonably good price. Second car park across the road for busy times with a zebra crossing which makes it safe. Lovely food and fun to hand feed the wallabies. Had a photo with a koala for $25 for up to 4 people in the picture and you get 3 printed copies and a digital download. Plenty to see and highly recommend you go
  • Honestly... I would have given a higher mark, but I am limited to 5 out of 5. I really enjoyed the time there. I loved almost everything. The only problem that existed is that the Koalas who were right at the entrance on the left had a relatively small place. I hope that if the Koala population will increase, the park will also increase its size :). Besides this, I cannot give less than 5 so good job you guys for contra-balancing the human induced extinction of animals. Keep up the good work and I hope to see you soon again in the future.
  • A wonderful wildlife park with lovely and informative staff members, and a wide selection of animals, with many of them even letting you pat them! The one downside is the charge for photos with an animal, like koalas or owls, but otherwise a lovely place. Although the food at the cafe is lovely, watch out for the wild birds that will walk up quite boldly and steal your chips or even your burger! Just be careful, and have a hat or magazine to swat them away.
  • We love this place, it's so much better than Taronga. Parking isn't usually a problem, park entry fee is cheaper, lots of free roaming kangaroos, and it's less crowded. Could probably do with a few more drinking fountains around, and the cafe serves very basic food so might want to bring your own (there are picnic tables around). Would also recommend getting your tickets online beforehand, receptionist at the entrance was very slow when we went the last time.
  • A relatively small but well stocked animal park. Loads of Kangaroos and Wallabies run around freely here. Nice place for a day trip. We took pictures with the prized but gentle Koalas and boy, we were constantly told in no uncertain terms what we should and should not be doing. Hand washing and wash room facilities need further attention. Entry fee applicable. Please carry some extra currency if you wish to buy food for the Wallabies and are keen to feed them. Ample parking space available close by. Good visit.
