Sydney’s Hands-On Wildlife Experience

Celebrating #50yearsofSkippy at Featherdale

Celebrating #50yearsofSkippy at Featherdale

15th June 2016

During a special event on the 8th of June 2016, we paid tribute to the overwhelmingly popular Australian TV Series, Skippy the Bush Kangaroo which aired its pilot episode FIFTY years ago! Tony Bonner, best known as Flight Ranger Jerry King, paid a visit to Featherdale to tell us about his experiences on set and loads more!

We also commemorated the much-loved founders and previous owners of Featherdale, Bruce & Margaret Kubbere! Without the Kubbere's, we would simply not be the world class wildlife facility that we are today. We give special thanks to our special guests, Ray Williams MP, Elanor Investors GroupCEO Glenn Willis, the P&C Committee and the lovely young students from Glenhaven Primary School!
