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. « less

We're members of Melbourne Zoo, so this entitled us to free entry to Taronga Zoo .Otherwise the entry fee is expensive. There were plenty of animals to see with the following being the highlights for me: - Nocturnal House - we found all the nocturnal animals, except the Quoll. Very often, being dark the animals are hard to see, but... More

The weather during out holiday wasn't the greatest and during out zoo trip it rained on and off all day! The gondola up was a fantastic experience, it was awesome seeing all the animals below us as we passed. The seal show was great although it bucketed down 1 minutes before it started so it didn't run for the full... More

Was a pleasure to take my young children to this Zoo. I haven't been in about 15 years and whilst not a lot has changed, it was easy to get around and see all the animals. Food was of course very expensive but this can be overcome if you are able to take some of your own food. We had... More

This was a bit expensive ($229 for the two of us) but was a highlight of our visit to Sydney. We happened to be the only two people on our tour with Paul, a senior zookeeper. He was terrific, so passionate about his career. We got to visit with and feed a kangaroo, quokkas, koalas, tiny possum creatures called gliders,... More

Taronga Zoo would have to be one of the best zoos in the world with a beautiful views of Sydney Harbour. It's well worth the visit and if travelling with children, bring a packed lunch as there's lots of spots to picnic. There is a fantastic new kids playground with great climbing nets which is located next to the Lemurs.... More

One of the most beautiful Zoo's I have ever seen. So clean and the location is gorgeous overlooking Sydney Harbour. All animals seemed happy and very well looked after which is the most important thing. Many spots to sit around and eat your lunch or just relax. Gift shop is nice also. A couple of months after visiting Taronga Zoo... More

I loved the whole experience. Ferry ride out from the Quay, and then up the Gondolas to start our tour of the zoo. Very impressed with the Thai elephants, the primates and the reptile area. Also impressed with the food court. A great day at the zoo. And an extra bonus: As you walk around you get to see some... More

Its almost worth it just for the views of the city! We caught the ferry from circular quay and walked about 5 minutes to the entrance. Food prices are quite steep so worth packing some snacks. Just a tip for families, great parents room near the food Hall. You feel very close to the animals and can see them because... More

This is my favourite zoo in Australia. Finally got to bring my boys up from QLD and they loved it. So much to see and the views are an added bonus to the whole day.
