Anybody who is not able to go to Featherdale Wildlife park can go to this Zoo and have good experience and watch Australian Animals. They have made this zoo in a very good way and gave a feel of wild life park

This place exceeded my expectation, as I initially thought it is smaller than Taronga zoo and hence the animals would be caged indoors etc. However, the place was well maintained with active animals and friendly staff, plus there were outdoor settings and a crocodile pool. The only point deducted was for the incorrectly issued parking validation that created bit of... More

Thank you for an enjoyable experience. I thoroughly enjoyed getting up close with the Koalas, one more thing ticked off my bucket list! The enclosures and animals were well kept and the staff were very helpful; Even taking additional photographs for me on my own camera as I was visiting alone.

If you want to have a close distance with Koala in the heart of Sydney, it is worth to go there. Otherwise I would like to recommend The Featherdale Wildlife Park.

It was a small zoo but a good way to see all the native animals. They where rebuilding an area when i went, but if you have half a day its definitely worth a visit.

This zoo was nice for a taste of Australia's wildlife. I was disappointed, however, that they are currently renovating the koala exhibit. My husband and I were looking forward to getting our picture taken with a koala. They did provide a coupon to return for 50% off of the ticket price, but for tourists, it most likely will never be...

Wildlife Sydney zoo is a small place to visit, if you are in hurry and don't have enough time to visit a big Zoo like Toranga Zoo or Featherdale wildlife Zoo. Here you can see such animals which are only present in Australia like Kangaroo, kola bear, Coca bora, penguin etc.

We visited this zoo as part of our holiday in Darling Harbour, and quite enjoyed it. It is small but still packs a punch as far as showing off a lot of Australian wildlife. We watched the crocodile talk (Rex is a huge crocodile with a very interesting past), stood out with the lorikeets as they fed, and enjoyed seeing... More

For where this zoo is located, they did a marvellous job setting it up. Best attractions were the koalas and the birds. Rex was huge but didn't do much else. Wife and kids took the photos with the koalas they hp they had a blast. The tour guides were very informative and helpful throughout the zoo. We left very happy... More

Hi Mazran Z, Thanks for your review - it is always fantastic to hear about the wonderful experiences that our guest have. I appreciate the feedback regarding stroller parking and will certainly investigate what can be done in that area. Also, Rex is due to restart his feeding routine as the weather warms up in late September/early October so if... More
