Fodor's Review

This is the place to see kangaroos, dingoes, wallabies, and echidnas (and even feed some of them) in native bush settings 40 km (25 miles) west of Sydney. You can have your picture taken with a koala for free. The daily crocodile feeding sessions are very popular. Take the train to Blacktown station and then board the 725 bus for the park. The park is on the way to the Blue Mountains.

Get up close and personal with animals

The wildlife park allows you to get extremely close to the animals. You get to take pictures with koalas, feed kangaroos, and get great pictures of Australian wildlife.

High Koala-ty

We go every time we visit Sydney just to visit our "foster" koalas- you can get your picture taken with them and (if you're lucky) may get to pet them- sorry, illegal for the general publci to hold them in NSW- Featherdale is also nice for watching other Australian native animals, etc.
