    Great place to visit – a must-see for visitors to Sydney. Though it is a bit of a drive it is worth it. Different to Taronga Zoo in that you can interact with many of the animals. The daily “lectures” are very informative and fun – even got to pet the underside of an echidna! The park is fairly clean and the staff is friendly. You don’t get the feeling that the animals are caged up – feels more free and open than many other places. Because it is a bit off the beaten track there aren’t many tourists which means you get a much better experience.

    Beautiful and amazing. The caretakers are really wonderful and take care to teach you about the animals. I got to pet an echidna!

    Great place for tourists to get up close and personal with some Aussie flora and fauna. The koala sanctuary is a favourite, get your photo taken whilst hugging one of the furry little guys.

    A great park! not too big but has a lot of animals and great access to pet some of them too! Advice is to be early as things can get busy on weekends. Petting little kangaroo’s and koala’s get immediate 4 stars!give yourself a little bit of time when going and read the website before as some anmials have different feeding times so this can impact how lively they are.!All in all great parking (across road) easy to find and didn’t disappoint.

    Before visiting Featherdale as recommended by a friend, I had been to a couple of zoos and farms in Australia and yet found the experience at Featherdale uniquely enjoyable. Known as a petting zoo, Featherdale provides visitors the flexibility and freedom to roam around and feed and touch animals as we wish, except for caged animals and the koalas as they may scratch you if the petting is not done right. Upon arrival, we were lucky enough to be offered the chance to hold a baby quokka and that was just the beginning of an intimate experience with Australia native animals as well as farm animals. You can also keep track of feeding time and learn a thing or two about the particular animals from the friendly and knowledgeable zoo keepers. Visitors are also given a “passport” where you can collect stamps from different areas. Given that the zoo is just a lovely ride away from the city (avoid Fridays and peak hours), I would consider bringing my overseas friends here for a memorable Ausie experience.
