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.

This is one of the best experiences I have ever been lucky enough to do. From arrival to leaving the whole experience was truly outstanding. The staff were passionate, involved, caring, enthusiastic and friendly. The 'camping' was beautiful, clean and tidy with everything we needed. Towels and linen were included which was an awesome plus. The shower block was spotless... More

In overall it's a very nice zoo, but got some construction going on and therefore few things can't be seen or visited.

We returned to the Taronga Zoo in late December and had a lovely time with the kids - it's a great place to visit for all ages. Unfortunately some of the attractions were unavailable due to works and upgrades, which is always expected, however was a little surprised that as much was closed at the start of the holiday season....

After the short ferry from circular quay to the foot of the zoo park, we went to the top by public bus, the free bus is just 2-3 minutes driving up, and the driver is SO NICE. The cable way up and down is nothing in comparison to the cable way and skyway experience during the trip of Blue Mountains.... More

Got VERY close to koala, pet and fed Earl the wallaby, Pebbles the kangaroo, pet Chloe the wombat, saw platypuses, fed and held feather tail gliders, saw quokka, had a beverage and baked good after. Truly amazing to get so close and learn so much about the native Australian... More

It's a fairly decent zoo, with different kinds of fauna mostly from this part of the world. The best however were the koalas which were the only reason we went to the zoo. The kangaroos, gorillas, chimps were the next best. The staff there were pretty friendly and could give us info on whatever we wanted to know about the... More

Great attraction, lots of variety in animals, easy to see them. My favourite was elephants and giraffes and meer cats. Lots of shows and demos, food outlets. For the total experience, go by ferry (from circular quay), and get the cable car to the top. The zoo is on a slope, so walking down was better.
