I’m not much of a zoo person but I enjoyed Featherdale Wildlife Park (west of Sydney). This park is said to have the world’s largest collection of Australian native animals including endangered and rare species (like the ghost bat, bilbies, wombat, red-tailed black cockatoo and native quolls). Here you could hand feed and carefully touch some of the animals that roam freely within the park. The wallabies we encountered quickly snatched at the cone that held the food, so did the emus. I also saw a joey in its mom’s pouch. The Tasmanian devil was nowhere in sight at the time of our visit (mid-morning); it was probably still snoozing inside the hollow log in its fenced area and would not come out until feeding time at 4pm.
