Featherdale Wildlife Park, home to over 2,200 Australian native animals, is offering free entry into the park for all Mums this Mother’s Day.
In addition, the first 200 Mums through the gates on Sunday 8th May will receive a special Mother’s Day gift pack. What better way for Mums to celebrate this special day than with their own loved ones but also in the company of some fellow furry mothers who also care unconditionally for their offspring.
Chad Staples, General Curator at Featherdale, said: “We are delighted to offer free entry for Mums this Mother’s Day and look forward to welcoming families into the park. We are committed to our conservation and breeding programs and enjoy celebrating new additions to our Featherdale family. It’s a wonderful day out to witness the animals interacting with their offspring.”
In advance of Mother’s Day, Featherdale Wildlife Park has recently celebrated the arrival of some native birds such as a white-cheeked honeyeater, little pied cormorant and a wandering whistling duck. The furry friends born in the park over the last year, who always capture the attention of visitors include a red necked pademelon, three koalas, a yellow footed rock wallaby joey, a quokka and two baby wombats.
Not a mum but still a delight to visit and guaranteed to capture the hearts of all the families visiting the park is Archer the Koala. Archer was unable to be nurtured by his biological mother but was devotedly hand-raised by the loving keepers at Featherdale. He provides great entertainment at the park and has become a celebrity both in Australia and internationally.
Featherdale also has wonderful facilities including a café and shady picnic areas with BBQ facilities so families can really make a full day out of their visit and enjoy celebrating all the Mums out there, humans and creatures.
Featherdale is located at 217 Kildare Road Doonside and is open 9am to 5pm daily. Visit www.featherdale.com.au or call 02 9622 1644 for more information.
