About Featherdale Sydney Wildlife Park


Come and meet the dingoes at Featherdale

Focusing solely on native animals, at Featherdale you will find the largest collection of koalas in New South Wales, three open space enclosures filled with kangaroos and wallabies, as well as encounters with many other iconic Australian animals, such as dingos, echidnas, wombats, bilbies, Tasmanian devils, reptiles and a stunning collection of birds from Australia and around the world.

At Featherdale, their encounters are led by how their animals choose to engage with guests. The animals and their welfare always comes first.

Something very special happens when you get the chance to have a personal encounter with an animal. When an animal chooses to engage with you, it brings a true and unspoken connection that touches the heart.
