  • 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!
  • This is a great place to spend the day. We recently visited again when we had a Japanese exchange student staying with us. It is very reasonably priced and there is plenty of chances for interactions with Australian wildlife throughout the park. The staff are extremely friendly and helpful.
  • Good fun place for kids to visit.. the wallabies were freely moving around which made the experience worthwhile. There was open atmosphere to see the animals and feed them with a token $2 donation.
  • Very small park at the suburb of Sydney. Also a good place to see all the "Australian" wildlife (but in captivity). Also provide possibility to click a pic with Koala as well. If you have limited time and want to see all the unique creatures of Australia, then this can be a good choice.
