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 layout is great, with indigenous as well as other animals. There are a few shows and zookeeper talks throughout the day - majority in the morning/ noon though. Make sure you get there early if you want to cover the seal show etc. We...More

Living in Sydney you don’t normally go to the Local Zoo (strange human behaviour) but visit the zoo last weekend with adult family and found a wonderful visit. The Zoo is adding features like the new tiger track which is really good. We are lucky...More

What's not to like about Taronga. From the ferry trip in, then then cable car ride up, to the excellent zoo. It's a bit of a vigorous workout, coming back to the top, but in the beginning the paths are all downhill. Listened to the...More

You have to take a ferry to get to the zoo but that adds to the experience! They also have a ski lift and all sorts of interesting animals the U.S. has rarely heard of even!

We booked this trip before we left the UK. It included a short harbour cruise and the trip on the cable car up to the zoo. It was good value for money and the zoo is enormous! Some really beautiful, rare animals to be seen...More

Loved this place - an adventure from the journey to get there, to the meandering route to explore. The animals looked physically & mentally happy. I particularly loved the huge bush-walk aviary. There's a clear difference between the old facilities and the new - the...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

There are cafes and other places to pick up food for sure. But you can always bring your own lunch as well!

You can interact and even feed the Koalas at Wild Life Sydney for an additional price, I think it's around $20-50. It's at Darling Harbour so it's very accessible from CBD.
