Featherdale Wildlife Park

 

Opened in 1972 on a former poultry farm, the 7 acre Featherdale Wildlife Park is a major tourist attraction just outside Sydney.

Featherdale focuses exclusively on native Australian animals of which it houses over 2,000 from more than 260 different species.  This makes it the world’s largest exhibition of Australian wildlife.  There are 3 open space enclosures where visitors will encounter kangaroos, koalas, wallabies and many other native species.

 

You can either get there by car or take the T1 “North Shore & Western Line” light rail train (website).  It takes 45min from the Town Hall station in central Sydney to the Blacktown Station.  From there it is a 10min bus ride on bus line 729 which departs bus stand E which is located just outside the station to get to the entrance of the Featherdale Wildlife Park.

 

The park is open year-round, except on Christmas Day, from 9am to 4pm.
