Feed Our Cassowary


Guests now have the amazing opportunity to hand feed Princess, WILD LIFE Sydney Zoo's beautiful Southern Cassowary. This intimate encounter is the only opportunity to feed a cassowary in NSW and a fantastic chance to get up close to one of Australia's most misunderstood iconic animals. Known as the world's deadliest bird, the Southern Cassowary is also the third tallest bird in the world and incredibly rare - less than 1,000 are left in the wild.

A Cassowary Encounter Includes:
Exclusive behind-the-scenes access into the Daintree Rainforest habitat
Find out more about the endangered Southern Cassowary, the world's deadliest bird
In-depth safety briefing from the Cassowary Keepers
Get up close to and hand-feed Princess, the Southern Cassowary

When? The Cassowary Encounter is available daily at 3pm. Times are subject to change without prior notice. Ask a member of our friendly staff for more information.

Where? WILD LIFE Sydney Zoo is on Darling Harbour, right next door to SEA LIFE Sydney Aquarium. Cassowary Encounters take place in the Daintree Rainforest habitat.
