This is a wonderful park and you can get up close a touch. Under supervision with koalas but otherwise with all. Young kids will love it but delightful for adults too. Appropriate animal food available. Cafe and gift shop too. Family visit took us three hours but we could easily have spent more time there.

Featherdale has always been the easiest wildlife park to get to from me but thats not what keeps me coming back for more. I adore the wildlife and the ease of walking around the park, therr are signs everywhere so its impossible to get lost.

I have been going to featherfale park for at least once a year for the past 20 years. I love to take my children there and appreciate all that the park has to offer. It's close enough to Sydney CBD and the animals are always out and about allowing for close interaction.

I come here every few years and like to bring overseas visitors to see the native animals. It's usually very enjoyable, but my most recent visit has changed my opinion unfortunately. It's just way too crowded. I didn't see a single kangaroo or wallaby venture out of their refuge areas. Farm animals are often backed into a corner or get... More

I went here on my blue mountains tour not knowing what the park actually was. It has many different animals that you can see from close and feed and even touch. The cages are tiny and the animals have no room to move. The birds live in teeny tiny cages. The koalas get taken from their fake trees with only... More

My 9 year old dream came true when he got to pet a koala on the butt! This is a really nice wildlife park where you can get up close and personal with the animals. Everyone was super friendly.

Stopped here ~1 hr during small group Blue Mountain bus tour. This was most enjoyable, educational Australian wildlife attraction during our entire 1 week trip - Koalas, wombats, wallabies, Kangaroos are plentiful and unique opportunity to pet and hand feed animals in pens and wandering the park walkways. This park is clean/ well maintained with nice animal pens = obvious... More

We got there when it opened so it wasn't crowded and we got to take our time walking around to view the animals. Of course had our picture taken with Noah the Koala!! Were also able to feed the kangaroos, they come right up to you and put there paw in you hand. Saw a beautiful Dingo!
