Beautifully set up old zoo, with great collection on Asian, African and Australian fauna. We esspecially enjoyed the kangoroos and Koalas. Also penguins were so cute. You can see most animal very close by. Well worth the visit.......

My 5 & 2 year old absolutely loved it, bit let down that you can't have a cuddle with the koala to get photos instead you just stand infront of it. The quality of the print outs that you pay for is absolutely disgusting, very grainy but all in all a great day out!

Not a bad spot. Plenty of wildlife to see, and there are areas you can walk through and interact with the animals. Wear good shoes and bring your camera.

Wild-Life Sydney Zoo was highly recommended to us. We were not disappointed. On the contrary, we were thrilled! We thought that this was the best attraction in Sydney, with Sea-Life Aquarium coming in as a close second. We enjoyed getting a close-up view of the many unusual animals native to Australia. The coin-operated pin machine didn't work for me, but... More

I'll be honest - this attraction is crap. I came when it first opened many years ago and it was much bigger, cleaner and nicer. It was ok. Now it's a lot smaller and obviously hasn't had an upgrade or anything done to it in years. We walked through the entire place in around 1hr - not value for money... More

I enjoyed the visit, it's a central location and easy to access, but I didn't like the fact that almost everything is indoor. It looks more like a museum than a zoo for me, most animals being behind glass windows. But it' still a really nice place, with lots of interesting facts, and it gives a good first sight of... More

We bought the ticket as a combo with other attractions this gives you opportunity to save few dollars on the entrance fee. The zoo is quite small but its fun and informative to be here. Your kids will definitely enjoy knowing the fact about animals.
