If you have time to visit only one wildlife park in Sydney, make it this one. The selection of Australian animals is excellent, and, most importantly, the animals are very well cared for. You could easily spend a couple of hours here, despite the park’s compact size. You’ll have the chance to hand-feed friendly kangaroos and wallabies and get a photo taken next to a koala. The Reptilian Pavilion houses 30 native species of reptiles in 26 realistic exhibits. If you are heading to the Blue Mountains on a bus tour, you are well advised to choose one that stops off here. Allow 1 1/2 hours to get here by public transport or 45 minutes by car from the city center.
