Have you ever been to Featherdale Wildlife Park?
Featherdale is located on seven acres of land owned by Charles and Marjorie Wigg, which they purchased in 1953, in what was then a poultry farm. It was opened in 1972, by their son in-law Bruce Kibbare, who had studied fauna. The park initially opened as a nursery, lined with Australian native tress and plants, in conjunction with a wildlife park. It was threatened with closure in 1975 by rezoning and development for public housing, but the decision was reversed by then premier Sir Robert Askin.
