The centre was well-kept. Children are able to touch & feed the native animals especially the kangaroos and wallabies. Train ride for about 40 mins from Sydney (blue mountain line) will stop at the Blacktown station and another short bus ride to the park. Should...More

Featherdale is wonderful place for the family and tourists. You can get up close and personal with the animals. Lots of animal talks and you can touch and be photographed with koalas and kangaroos/wallabies.
