The zoo is small, you can see the animals aren't too happy as well. I guess the wildlife is much better. But the staff are all accommodating.

Not the biggest zoo but if it's just Australian animals you want to see its the perfect place. Check online for cheaper deals. Also check times for talks before you go. You get to find out loads about the Kangaroos and Kualas.

I'm deeply disappointed with this wildlife attraction, to a point where I would want my money to be refunded. Even before buying the tickets I asked the official that on such a busy harbour do you hv enough animals and place of these animals in your wildlife zoo? I was told YES. But it's not true. There are all small... More

80% of Australian species can't be find anywhere else in the world. It explains a lot. For any traveler traveling to Australia must has this agenda to explore Austrian wildlife. Now it is best to spot them in wild. But in a such vast country with limited time it is impossible to explore more. Sydney wild comes to your rescue.... More

We went to Wild Life Sydney Zoo as part of the five attraction pass I had bought online prior to our trip to Sydney and thought we would go to basically get our monies worth.

This zoo is located right in the heart of downtown Sydney. It is easy to get to and is located across from Darling Harbor. The entrance to the zoo is a bit pricey,($45 aud) but it is well worth it, because you get to see all of the native animals in one central location. Most of these animals are usually... More

The animals are boring, they hide in their burrows when visitors approach, the koala sleeps all day, kangaroos lay around. I visited at 9am, so I guess the animals were still sleepy? Very disappointing, who puts a zoo on a harbour??? It was dark and clammy.
