Everything today is impacted by COVID-19 and Taronga Zoo is no different. To their credit the Zoo is open but with some differences to what we have experienced over the years. Namely, the overhead sky-chair system is closed which means no entry from the ferry, only where the buses drop off at the main entrance. The bottom exit shop is also closed with a brisk 250 m walk (through a locked gate) if the ferry to Circular Quay is your means to arrive/depart. If not the top entry has parking. The middle shop is also closed, and the food market very restricted which is fine. There is much work at the Savannah enclosure, so the lion viewing really does not work, if they are in the shade at the top of the enclosure. A number of enclosures have work, not enough to be unhappy but still.... Plenty of folk still visiting but check before you visit I think.

We caught the Ferry from Circular Quay to Taronga Zoo, it leaves approx every 20mins Some of the entrances are closed due to Covid therefore take the bus to the main entrance as you’ll be walking all day and don’t wanna be tired before you start. There are plenty of animals to see and we all enjoyed the seal show. Proactive Covid Measures and the food centre is run really well it has items on display making choices easy and means less wait time. The Zoo is located on a Magical Spot over looking the harbour but you’re up and down hills all day so if you’re thinking of grandparents would suggest if they’re relatively fit.

A lazy Sunday strolling through the Taronga Zoo... what a start to the day! Arrived at 9am with easy on street parking 100m from entry, the staff sorted our pre paid tickets that had been postponed due to C19. Off we went - heaps of cool animals no real crowd and the staff couldn’t be more helpful.... watched the seal show ( line up about 10.30am to avoid a queue as C19 has limited seats). All up a top day with great harbour views perfect amenities and wonderful people. Just watch the chimpanzees - especially first up at feeding time - and you will get life! Oh did I mention the little meerkats.... gold! Cheers

Such a great zoological park, steeped with a rich history. Have been many times over the years & I still am pleased with all that’s new and to revisit the exhibits of the past. It’s nice to see active conservatism at its best. The sea life experience is a plus, coming from seeing the old enclosures in the past. It really is a great day out for all ages.

I took my two Grandchildren to the zoo with my partner and was extremely disappointed and underwhelmed! I recall taking my own children there years ago and remember it being fantastic! There were very few animals really - saw no lions, tigers, nor many other animals I recall seeing previously!! The general maintenance was also ordinary with spider webs everywhere and a general impression of being run down! It certainly wasn’t the world class zoo I remember! Needless to say I won’t be going back or recommending it to anyone!!
