The Wiley Park Singers are an Australian children’s choir, formed in the south-west of Sydney in 1995. The choir is based in Wiley Park, Sydney, and composed of children from 29 cultural backgrounds. They have been variously trained by music educators Lynne Woods, Vanessa Witton, Michael Strahan and Jack Liston.

The Wiley Park Singers were the first public school choir in Australia to record their own music CD.[1][2][3] They first came to prominence when the gospel song Oh Happy Day from their debut album The Wiley Park Singers! Volume 1 was played on Australian radio in 1999.
