Featherdale Sydney Wildlife Park has been delighting animal lovers of all ages since it first officially opened its gates on 22 July 1972. Originally founded by Bruce and Margaret Kubbere on the site of Margaret’s family poultry farm, in its 48-year history Featherdale Sydney Wildlife Park has grown to proudly now care for the largest collection of Australian animals in the world, with over 2000 Australian native animals across 260 species.
With a collection this large, Featherdale Sydney Wildlife Park is able to offer its guests incredible hands-on wildlife experiences, from hand-feeding wallabies and kangaroos, to the chance to pat a koala, and now even the opportunity to take a selfie with a Quokka or hand feed Australia’s smallest species of penguin, and much more!
If this year has shown us anything, it’s how important quality time with our families on weekends is. At Featherdale Sydney Wildlife Park, we want to make those special family moments all the more memorable, so when you visit Featherdale, you enjoy:
Lush tree cover to stroll beneath
Hand feed wallabies and kangaroos (just $3 for a cup of roo food)
