Featherdale Wildlife Park is located deep within Sydney’s sprawling west, where once it was possible to see native beasties running in the wild. Modern expansion over farmland and bush means catching a glimpse of local fauna obviously isn't as easy as it used to be. Happily, Featherdale now has one of Australia's largest private collections of native animals and birds.
The park is geared for a convenient family-themed romp around local wildlife: an easy walk around a host of raucous bird enclosures, dimly lit huts (preserving the night time world of the bilby and ghost bat) and open-themed areas where you will see the likes of scurrying Tasmanian devils, reclining swamp wallabies and slumbering koalas.
