About Us


Featherdale Sydney Wildlife Park, located in Doonside, Australia, has a rich history dating back to 1972 when it first opened its doors.

Originally a poultry farm, it transformed into a wildlife park over the years, showcasing the diverse flora and fauna of Australia. The park quickly gained popularity for its commitment to conservation and education, offering visitors a unique opportunity to interact with native Australian wildlife.

Featherdale Sydney Wildlife Park has continuously expanded its exhibits to include a wide range of iconic Australian species, from kangaroos and koalas to crocodiles and wombats. The park has played a vital role in promoting awareness about Australia's unique biodiversity and the importance of wildlife conservation.
