    While Taronga Zoo is the most famous in Sydney, to me it's not worth visiting at all. Why? Well, what's the point in looking at elephants and giraffes when you can see them in your own city's zoo?
    In Feathedale, you can touch and feed the kangaroos! (In Taronga you can't) And the good thing about this place is that ALL the animals are typical from Australia: koalas, kangaroos, emus, equidnas, etc.
    You cannot carry the koalas here (apparently they get stressed!) but you can get to be close to them and caress them.
    It's open every day from 9 to 5.

    This is Featherdale Wildlife Park where you can have an interactive afternoon with some of Australia’s most famous known animals. You can pet a koala as they munch on their staple diet of eucalyptus trees or buy some feed for 75 cents (au) to lure a wombat or kangaroo for a nice Kodak moment. Meander your way through to the back where they have a whole area for reptiles, but I couldn’t quite make myself go through as the place looked too enclosed and, yes, I’m a scaredy cat when it comes to things that slithers. But a nice little surprise was a pen for a komodo dragon who I swear gave me the evil eye as I took a photograph.

    Featherdale wildlife park, which can be found on www.featherdale.com.au and the address is 217-229 Kildare Rd, Doonside 2767. The park is amazing, about an hour away from Sydney it houses rockwallabies, kangaroos, birds, emus, dingo's, tasmanian devils etc. The botanic gardens, taronga zoo, the superb beaches
    You have to go out and about sydney to see the opera house/bridge etc but it can be done in a day. Get a ferry to watsons bay and buy fish and chips in the excellent bar on the beach, Doyles

    Featherdale Wildlife Park is a really friendly hands on type of Zoo, great for the kids as they can get to feed the Kangeroos and Wallabies. :)
    Theres less friendly Critters too, like Saltwater and Freshwater crocs!
    Not too big and in a Natural Environment.
