Sydney Wildlife Park

Sydney Wildlife Park is a small zoo featuring Australian wildlife in indoor and outdoor displays.

11 natural animal environments have been recreated and there is an emphasis on letting visitors get as close as possible to the animals.

Among the displays is the Koala Encounter, a rooftop area with a restaurant and enclosed area with koalas.

Animals at the Sydney Wildlife Park

There is also the large Kangaroo Walk-About, wombats, Tasmanian Devils, Pademelons, Possums, Dunnarts, Bettongs and Echidnas.

Among the feathered residents are parrots, finches, whistling ducks, cockatoos and curlews.

There is a bug section with Australian spiders, wild bees, bats, giant cockroaches and Bull Ants. The reptiles include snakes, lizards, turtles and there are crocodiles, Cassowaries, butterflies, frogs and fish.

At the Sydney Wildlife Zoo you can meet a huge 5 meter long crocodile and also enter a "nighttime" habitat to see how nocturnal animals behave. What really sets this attraction apart is the abundance of free keeper talks, animal encounters and feeding times throughout the day. The talks are every half hour and there are also shows like the Wildlife Show about koalas or kangaroos. Another special experience is the Kuala Breakfast which includes a morning guided tour of the zoo, a hot buffet breakfast and a meeting with the koalas.
