When you get off the ferry, you have to walk up to the zoo ticket booth. It’s a nice little stroll and you can see the whole city from up the top. When you actually get to the top of Taronga Zoo, it’s just stunning....More
We did a behind the scenes excursion with one of the zookeepers. There were 3 couples. We got to be close and personal with koalas and went to a private area to have a hands on experience with 2 echidna's, which was really neat. The...More
Okay but minuses as well as pluses
Being from San Diego, we have some thoughts on zoos but never expect our experience to be quite the same elsewhere. Even allowing for that, the zoo was somewhat disappointing.
From downtown Sidney a ferry is recommended. This...More
This is a great walk through some unspoilt countryside around the coastline. Several spots to stop and take in lovely views. The route has some climbing but isn’t overly arduous and the pathway in general is well maintained.
Getting to the zoo on the ferry is fun the views defore you get there are amazing. Once there the sky rail to the top was awesome . The sett up of the zoo was perfect. You get up and close to all the animals...More
Taronga zoo was well worth the 3 1/2 hour walk around. Even then we didn’t see it all. The Seal show was a must, times are displayed or you can ask a member of staff. The feeding of the giraffes and koalas was great also....More
Our harbour is one of the most pristine I've seen on my travels and it took an overseas visitor to make me get out and see it. It's full of surprises, small beaches and bays, Clifton Gardens, just gorgeous, sights of war bunkers and historic...More
We did the section from the Spit to Manly (and back again, about 20km).
The path is generally good, some stairs and steps but not too much climb and descent. Great harbour views and part through bushland with views towards the heads.
There are some...More
With a variety of outdoor attractions, the sophisticated harbor suburb of Mosman has something for everyone. Shoppers can stroll Military Road for its unique offering of antiques, designer labels, and hip restaurants and cafes. Nature lovers can take in spectacular bushwalks like the Taronga to Balmoral walk, while families can enjoy snorkeling in the sheltered beaches of Balmoral Beach or scuba diving at
Chowder Bay. History lovers enjoy exploring the fortifications at the end of Old Fort Road in Middle Head, which date back to the 1800s. Even the exhibitionist set can find entertainment in Mosman, with several nude beaches located in the area.

The pathway is along the coast and easy to follow, there are a few sections where you go on the road, one that comes to mind is where 40 Baskets Reserve is at Balgowlah. The yards of residences skirt the water at this point, but it's easy to navigate without a map, just keep heading back to the water. It was busy enough for us to follow someone else if in doubt. Lots to look at around Middle Head lookout.
If worried, as we are locals with a good knowledge of our whereabouts, you could try searching 'walking trails' and downloading something as a guide.

Most the ferries route for both Taronga Zoo and Manly Beach only leave from Circular Quay so you would have to go via CQ for the trip. Connecting journey are not yet available during my last visit last Sept 2017.
