Featherdale Wildlife Park

Featherdale Wildlife Park is the place to be if you want intimate and interactive moments with Australia's native animals.

If it's your first time in Sydney, I'm sure one your plans is to visit Taronga Zoo. I've been to Taronga like back in 2004 so it's obviously been a while and I wanted to see koala's before flying back to Manila. This time around, as suggested by friends based down under, I am visiting Featherdale Wildlife Park in Doonside, Sydney.

So what are you gonna see inside the park? Over 2000 native animals! Of course expect a lot more birds, a few reptiles, marsupials and mammals. Just a note, I tried my best to recall all the names but sadly I failed. Haha. If you do know what kind of bird are they please let me know. Anyway.. ready to see the photos? Check them out below!

Southern Cassowary

Moving forward to my fave part, the marsupials...


Tasmanian Devil

Koala, mygoodness aren't they the cutest?!

The best part of visiting Featherdale Wildlife Park? Taking a damn selfie with the animals!

If you love to interact with animals, it's the best zoo to visit in Sydney!

This is seriously one of the best Mondays I have ever had. :) It may not be as obvious but I do have a weird fascination on animals, specially for birds! Sadly, reptiles excluded. Haha. 

Fastest way to get to Featherdale Wildlife Park is to hop on an intercity train (Blue Mountrain Line) from Central and hop off Blacktown station. From the station, look for bus stand no. 9 and wait for bus no. 725 and 729 which both stop at the park. As for the ticket prices, they're obviously cheaper compared to Taronga Zoo. Adults pay $29.50AUD and kids aged 3-15 pay only $16.00AUD per pax.
