  • So many great animals to see! I definitely recommend to get in early so you have a chance to see everything they have and the animal experiences on during the day. The cafe is a bit pricey, so maybe bring your own snacks. However the gift/souvenir store is priced quite reasonably for a wildlife park, so pick up a few gifts for your friends and family.
  • Always a great time to be had at Featherdale. One of the few places that still allow you to get up close and personal with Australian wildlife. Great variety of birds if that's your thing but I love the wallabies and QUOKKAS! During mating season you can even see wallabies with their little joeys in their pouches!
