Sydney’s Hands-On Wildlife Experience

Louie Students Tawny Frogmouth Low Res

Bring your classroom alive with featherdale wildlife park!

During their wildlife excursion, your students can explore the park with their supervisors, watch our keeper presentations and animal feeds, and even book a private lesson to add a special touch to the day. Education lessons run for 45 minutes in our “Learning Burrow” outdoor amphitheatre, and are designed according to current primary and high school curriculums. 


Our education officer will introduce the students to 4 of our fantastic animals, and teach them about their lifestyle, diet, habitat, defence mechanisms, predators and much more. The students are then offered the opportunity to pat each animal. Whether your students are studying: 

  • Living Things 

  • Wet and Dry Environments 

  • Australian Animals

  • Needs, Shelters

  • Life Cycles

  • Our Australia

  • Classification and Adaptation

Our education team will tailor a lesson that’s right for your excursion!
