In Sydney for the weekend and not into pubs and clubs? There's plenty other things to do on a Sunday morning before returning home. My husband decided, we were going to visit Wild Life Zoo and the new Wild Flight.. We've been to plenty of zoo's in the past 15 or so years, but this one was better as it... More

We pre purchased tickets to the Aquarium, Wild Life and Madame Tussards - would not like to have paid full price to see this place. Like the Aquarium some exhibits were closed for renovation which is very disappointing. Animals look well cared. Nice way to spend a few hours looking at our wonderful native animals.

For people who haven't time to visit Taronga Zoo - which deserves hours of attention - this great little place had all the Aussie animals you'd want to see. The exhibits were very good, the keepers friendly and informative and the animal encounters really enjoyable. Great for a wet day too. We saw enough in a couple of hours but... More

Buying these tickets online we thought this was going to be an actual zoo, it's more of an aquarium for bush animals

I have been there many times. I have taken visitors from Texas as well as from Canada and from here in Australia. It is great for kids and they can interact with butterflies and see many animals in a small space. All under cover so weather does not affect your visit.

This attraction has been around for a while and sits beside the Aquarium and Madame Tussaud's. It is obviously geared towards the tourist in a hurry. However don't underestimate it. The recent "Wild Flight" addition was enough reason to get us through the door. And what a surprise! I was quite satisfied to finally see a zoo which featured standard,... More

If you are in Sydney, Au for a brief trip and don't have a lot of time for sightseeing this place is for you. I was on a recent business trip, and really wanted to see some of the unique animals that Australia is so famous for. This attraction is very centrally located right in Darling Harbour. It is small,... More

Wild Life Sydney is great for tourists visiting Sydney - as they can have a look at Australian Wildlife right in the heart of Sydney city. I went with my family ( 2 adults & 2 kids) . We purchased the multi-attraction pass which saved us over $100 and we got to see 4 main attractions in Sydney and Wild... More

Went to a famil night and thoroughly enjoyed the wild life zoo. It's great for families and tourists, very informative of the animals, you can get really close to the animals. They have a lot of snakes. Well worth visiting

Hi there Gill! Thanks for sharing your fantastic photos and review with us; we really appreciate you taking the time to share this with us. Our kangaroos and koalas are always a firm favourite but our snake species range is a great representation of local Sydney and Australia wide. This is especially helpful if you are going bushwalking anywhere in... More

We travelled to Sydney for the day to take the kids (aged 4 and 2). We all had a great time. We went on a Monday and we didn't have to fight crowds to see the exhibits. Kids had a blast. Loved the cafe in the koala area. Staff were helpful and friendly.
