I am not a zoo person, but this place is very different. All the animals are accesible and able to be fed. All indiginous animals of Australia are here, and feeding and demonstrations allowed you to see the animals at their own pace. This place...More

If you haven't seen Australian Fauna before then Featherdale is an OK place to see lots in one place. We only came here as part of a tour so as an Aussie it was not particularly exciting. In Adelaide you can safely hold a Koala...More

This isn’t a wildlife park, it’s a zoo, with nearly all of the animals kept in cages and pens. I just wanted to leave as soon as possible and was quite distressed by the experience.More
