Featherdale Wildlife Park is Sydney’s premier wildlife destination and is home to one of Australia’s most comprehensive collections of native wildlife. It specialises in Australian marsupials, mammals, reptiles and birds, and provides a home for over 1700 native animals from more than 250 different species, making it the country’s largest native collection.
Featherdale values Australia’s natural environment and is passionate about conserving the native wildlife population. Focusing solely on local animals, Featherdale boasts the largest gathering of koalas in NSW and has three open enclosures of kangaroos and wallabies. It also has an abundance of other distinctive Australian animals including echidnas, wombats, bilbies, dingoes and Tasmanian devils, as well as an impressive array of beautiful birds and iconic reptiles.
This unique destination makes for the perfect family day out. It is intriguing, exciting and educational, and visitors of all ages and from all walks of life will enjoy Featherdale.
The animal encounters will melt hearts and forge lasting memories. Enjoy a personal interaction in the koala sanctuary, where you will have the rare opportunity to touch a koala, chat to the expert keeper and shoot some exceptional photography. If a kangaroo experience is what excites you, purchase a $2 food cup and wander the enclosure meeting the friendly marsupials and feeding them snacks.
As home to the largest collection of Australian bird species, the park plays an important role in the preservation of hundreds of birds from around the country, as well as some notable exotic species.
And don’t forget the reptilian pavilion! Explore the depths of the collection of snakes, pythons, lizards, monitors, turtles, frogs and spiders.
Housing over 30 endangered or vulnerable Australian species, Featherdale is integral to the protection and preservation of Australia’s unique wildlife, including participating in the protection of the plains wanderer, an incredible bird on the verge of extinction.
Featherdale is a truly unmissable experience. Bring the family for an enjoyable and educational day out, feed the animals, and observe Australia through its beautiful and exceptional wildlife.
