Bring your kids to meet ours!

The Farmyard is the perfect place to connect with nature and great for the whole family!

For the school holidays – we will be offering FREE daily goat kid feeding at the Farmyard at 11:30am, plus come have a cuddle and a pat with all of our other animals too!

It looks as though these holidays are going to be rainy and wet weather plans are going to be high on the agenda. Sydney siders know too well about muggy, rainy, thunder-storming days in the middle of Summer. Kids on school holiday break don’t want to slow down just because of a little rain!

At Featherdale, we want to show people that you can still come and have a great family day out, regardless of the weather. That’s why we’ve launched our rainy day survival pack for these school holidays!
