This zoo is conveniently located just one ferry ride from the city. This means you get a fantastic view of the harbour before reaching your destination. Entrance of the zoo is a little pricey, so it might be worth waiting for a promotion or buying coupons whenever they're available. This zoo has a great atmosphere. The animals seem quite happy and the staff are generally friendly. It's very spacious so if you're bringing the kids along, you won't have a problem with having lots of prams. The animal enclosures are quite large, it seems as if they have space to play around. The zoo is separated into different regions of the world, so African animals in one area, Australian animals in another etc. It's a fantastic way to spend the day. Throughout the zoo there are spots where you can see the city and the view is stunning. You can spend a few hours losing yourself here, so pack a picnic or be prepared to spend quite a bit on lunch. Best time to go would be weekdays away so you avoid the crowds.
