Caring for the physical, mental, and emotional welfare of our animals is our passion, and is at the core of all we do.

Across Featherdale Sydney Wildlife Park, Mogo Wildlife Park, and Hunter Valley Wildlife Park, we provide a safe home for all of our animals with enriching environments for numerous endangered and critically endangered species from across Australia and from around the world.

Nestled in the heart of the scenic Hunter Valley, Hunter Valley Wildlife Park houses over 200 animals, including iconic Australian species like kangaroos and koalas, as well as endangered species from around the world. Conveniently located just 45 minutes from Newcastle, the park attracts school excursions from nearby areas such as Nelson Bay, Maitland, Cessnock, Singleton, Muswellbrook, Scone, and the Central Coast, offering students an up-close encounter with diverse wildlife and fostering a deeper appreciation for conservation.

Partner contributions play a vital role in sustaining the park's mission, enabling ongoing care for its animal residents and enriching educational programs for visitors. These contributions support conservation initiatives, educational resources, and the overall visitor experience, ensuring the park remains a crucial hub for wildlife preservation and education in the region.
