Featherdale Wildlife Park Tourist Attraction

Featherdale Wildlife Park

The Featherdale zoo is the largest private wildlife park in Australia. It is located in Doonside, which is just a 45-minute drive from Sydney. Featherdale Park was founded in 1953. It was originally a private zoo, but due to well-conducted reorganization, Featherdale turned into a kind of wildlife sanctuary, where you can see animals in their natural habitat. It is particularly interesting to observe the wallaby, wallaroo, koalas, little penguins, dogs, dingoes, wombats, echidnas, Tasmanian devils, flocks of parrots and other animals and birds. Featherdale Park is one of the most beloved and visited parks in Australia. Every day tourists come here to walk. Photographers take pictures for scientific journals. Writers and naturalists observe animal behavior and use the obtained information in scientific papers. Teachers of schools and other educational institutions organize on-site Featherdale lessons outdoors. Such tours for schoolchildren allow them to better perceive information about the wildlife and its inhabitants. There are about 5000 inhabitants in the Park today. Some of them are on the verge of extinction. There are also some amazing albino animals: kangaroo, giant crocodile, dingo. Couples with children are frequent zoo visitors. The separate area is created for kids, where they can pet kangaroos and koalas, and see how these marsupials carry and nurse their cubs. During an excursion, you can take a short break for a snack, go to the gift shop and choose gifts for memory. Featherdale Wildlife Park is open every day except Christmas, from 9 o'clock in the morning. You can get there on your own car, by taxi or by bus.
