Taking a ferry directly from Circular Quay to Taronga Zoo, located in the suburb of Mosman, is the first unexpected joy of visiting the animal park. Once there, the leisurely trails and opportunity to see some of Australia's distinct wildlife become apparent, as does the striking view of the Harbour Bridge from the seating at the aerial bird show. Advance booking can give you the chance to see koalas up close, or stay overnight and 'camp' in the zoo.

The ferry trip from Circular Quay and the cable car ride was a fun start to our family day at the zoo and from there the remainder of the day was just as good. Spacious gardens & walk areas, some lovely enclosures and plenty to see and do. And of course views from all areas of the zoo but in... More

Taronga Zoo is a absolutly "must see" "must have been there" of Sydney. If you want to (and you certainly should) go there take the ferry from Cercular Quay and than the funicular to the main entrance. You should definitely see the seal show and the view over Sydney from the giraffe enclosure.

We visited here mid-week and since we arrived at around 11am, we missed many of the school groups and often had areas almost to ourselves. Loved the lemurs. Tigers were taking a close interest in the humans on the other side of the glass. If you are going with kids, take your own snacks - $4 for a small packet... More

I've lived in Sydney my whole life, And I've been to the zoo countless times, and to many around the world. But this has one of the best views in Sydney and there is so many things to do. The cable car has such a beautiful view of the harbour and so many animals to look at I love the... More

I have been living in Sydney for 4 years and love visiting the zoo. This is the best Zoo I have ever visited. The sea lion show is really good also and the cute baby elephant and baby gorilla. The cable car over the animals is fantastic and views of Sydney harbour are an extra bonus. If you have a... More

The experience begins once you leave Circular Quay on the ferry. For tourists this is easily the best way to get classic shots of the Opera House and the Sydney Harbour Bridge. Once you make land you will be taken by cable car over the zoo, a chance to feel like a monkey yourself! The zoo its self is a... More

The animals have the best view of the Sydney harbor, better then most of the million dollar apartments around the harbor. The animals look well looked after and made me feel better about visiting a zoo. Easy to get to from most of Sydney and the ferries add to this ease. I would say that this zoo is worth the... More

This is the best zoo I've ever been too! Hands down! I would never think to go to a bird show but when friends suggested it, we figured we'd check it out. It's absolutely beautiful! The backdrop is the Sydney harbor and the birds are free-flying but incredibly trained. It's absolutely beautiful! Also recommended- the seal show! And don't miss... More
