Featherdale Wildlife Park

It doesn’t matter what your age is at Featherdale Wildlife Park. Everyone who visits the park has the opportunity to get up-close-and-personal with some of Australia’s native animals. This park is conveniently located in Sydney, making it an easy destination for those who want to experience native animals, but may not have the chance to get out of the city. Featherdale has created a unique environment in an urban setting with natural bush for the animals to be at home. Explore the park and see how their conservation efforts have helped keep the animals safe and healthy.

Featherdale Wildlife Park was created in 1972 on seven acres of private land. The family wanted to create a park where conservation and education were combined in a fun and engaging way. Since then, the park has become wildly popular with both locals and tourists wanting to visit the animals.

The biggest attraction at the wildlife park is the option to feed or hold the animals. Throughout each day, there are specific times that certain animals will be fed. Some animals like kangaroos and wallabies are available to be hand fed, while the big crocodiles are not. You are able to watch them being fed, which is just as entertaining.
