There are different zoos in Sydney, but I chose Featherdale Wildlife Park because you can have close encounter and feed the kangaroos. How cool is that?😊
It’s actually easy to get there via public transport, you may refer to the photo below.
Here’s the schedule of the 729 bus for your reference
The bus will drop you off right infront of the park
There’s usually a long line getting in, so bring a fan, water and patience😊
Here are the rates and info needed that I got from their website. If you have the brochures from the airport, you’ll get 20% off coupon.
Reminders before you enter
And off I go…
You will be given this passport for your guide around the zoo, and I also bought this Kangaroo food for $2 AUD.
First thing I saw were different kinds of birds, I didn’t take photos of all of them though (there’s a lot!😂)
There were penguins too! 🐧
And the koalas! The koala is an arboreal herbivorous marsupial native to Australia. It is the only extant representative of the family Phascolarctidae and its closest living relatives are the wombats. -Wikipedia
How cute are they?🐨
Since the koalas are up in the trees, I felt the need to be close to them. So, I went and had a photo taken with the biggest one. This time around, it costs me $20 with a printed copy.
And the major attraction here, the kangaroos. The kangaroo is a symbol of Australia and there’s about 70 million of them there. Can you imagine that?🤔
I also tried feeding them😊
She has a baby inside her pouch. Super tiny!
The bigger ones were in a bigger space. They’re as tall as me. Okay, I’m only 5’1, so not that tall😂
And since I’m a solo traveler, I had to do a selfie, good thing the kangaroo looked☺️
You won’t get lost as there are signs everywhere
The dingo is a wild canine found in Australia whose taxonomic status as a distinct species remains debated. The dingo is the largest terrestrial predator in Australia, and plays an important role as an apex predator. -Wikipedia
They don’t look wild to me😊
And then, some reptiles. Since I focused more on the koalas and kangaroos, I don’t have a lot of photos here.
I spent about 3 hours here. And by the way, there’s free WiFi everywhere!😊
There’s also a place to eat, for sure you will get hungry walking around
And of course, you can buy souvenirs here. The stuffed toys are cute!😊
Overall, I had fun as my main goal was to see and have a close encounter with the koalas and kangaroos.😊
