Cuddle a koala, handfeed a kangaroo, and watch penguins waddle at Featherdale Wildlife Park, just 40 minutes from central Sydney. Celebrating Australia’s unique animals and birds, Featherdale presents all kind of native fauna in a natural bush setting to delight local and international visitors alike. Home to the world’s largest collection of Australian native animals, more than 2000 critters live at Featherdale, including saltwater crocodiles, bats, bilbies, wallabies, wombats, emus, and reptiles. The various feeding times at the park are a highlight.
The wildlife park’s facilities include a cafe, souvenir shop, and picnic areas with barbecues for cooking up a typical Australian lunch to complete the all-round Aussie experience.

Doing what: Small-Group Blue Mountains Day Trip from Sydney with River Cruise
This was an excellent tour! Our tour guide, Mark, really took time to make sure everyone got as much out of the day as possible. Featherdale was the best of the zoos we visited in Sydney, and the Blue Mountains were stunning. This really was the best day of our trip. We would definitely recommend it!

The blue mountains are amazing. The tour takes you around the main sights and includes an informative aboriginal cultural experience. The visit to featherdale allows a good interaction with the animals.

Doing what: 2-Day Combo: Sydney City Tour, Sydney Harbour Lunch Cruise and Blue Mountains Day Trip
Really great tour with helpful friendly driver. Hotel pick up on time and well organised. Although it poured down for two days of our trip even that didn't spoil the tours. The second day, as the driver thought, at Featherdale Wildlife Park perked up and the sun came out. Perfect for feeding the wallabies, kangaroos and the cheeky emus !! Would definitely recommend this tour to anybody visiting Sydney.
Featherdale Wildlife Park is east of Sydney near the town of Blacktown. The park exit is Doonside Rd, just off the Great Western Hwy from Sydney.
To get here by public transport, take the train from Sydney to Blacktown, then hop on bus No 725 which travels to the wildlife park from Blacktown station.
