Great day out with your family, friends or partner. They have a butterfly enclosure that you can go into and have the butterflies land on you. You can definitely spend the whole day here and it's worth a visit. I think you can also get a group attraction ticket that gets you into a few places in Sydney for a... More

It was great fun to take the ferry to the zoo. And once we got there, it was wonderful to experience the Australian Walk, so we could see all the Aussie animals! Loved it!

You have to get up early to see these little critters awake. Pay for the breakfast. The food wasn't anything special, but the koalas are fed during that same time and since they are only away for about 2 hours per day, you gotta see them when they are awake and more lively, moving around. You get to go inside... More

I know space is an issue in the heart of the city, and the desire to show off Australia's unique fauna is great, but - the enclosures are tiny and the animals there have no space at all. A five metre croc in a small pool, a Tassie Devil in a small enclosure - I nearly cried. I also thought... More

The animals here are well cared for. The zoo itself is beautiful. All of the animals seem very happy in spite of being captive. We had a great time here. I would recommend it completely.

Since we arrived during bad weather we lost one entire day of our vacation, based on that we decided to go to Wildlife Sydney so everyone could see the Koala Bears, Kangaroo’s and Taz Devils etc. I will admit it is not Taronga, HOWEVER it was not a bad alternative for what we needed. Wildlife Sydney has all the most... More

I went to the zoo with my son & grandson and thought it was excellent especially the crocodile, he was all our favourite! The only problem was it was over too quickly! We really had an enjoyable time there and would definitely do it again.
