A SUPERB ZOO - A CREDIT TO THE OWNERS & AN ASSET TO WESTERN SYDNEY
Jun 2021
Sydney Zoo is one of the best zoo's I've been to worldwide, and I travel extensively.....it's outstanding! It's easy to negotiate for parents with prams and people in wheelchairs. We took our 8 year old granddaughter who had a ball ticking all the animals off on the zoo map and planning which animal to see next. The last time we took her to Taronga Zoo and it was so disappointing as half the exhibits were empty and the terrain was exhausting to walk around. She just LOVED Sydney Zoo, said it was much better than the other one and couldn't wait to come back again and perhaps do the Meerkat feeding experience. We enjoyed a snack at the Boardwalk Café and had a wonderful time watching the Meerkats playing while we ate....it was so entertaining. The Tiger talk and feed was interesting and watching the keepers place the food around for the Orangutan and watching them find all the hidden treasures was great fun. They have a wonderful Nocturnal & Reptile House and also an Aquarium. My only criticism was the Kids Zoo only had one sheep and a lamb and you couldn't go in, but I assumed it was because of Covid restrictions, but everything else made up for that small hiccup. It's a must do for any family and an absolute credit to the Owner and an asset for the western suburbs of Sydney.

Great day at Sydney zoo
Jun 2021 • Family
Great day out for little ones and adults. Super easy to get to, park, and walk around at it is relatively flat. The Red panda was playing around and the capybara had 3.5 month old babies, very cool. The cassowary has a great personality and follow you around

Average Experience was expecting more.
Jun 2021 • Family
Expectations were high but unfortunately we were left a little disappointed.
First and foremost the staff were excellent, welcoming, friendly and courteous. Five stars.
The facilities for the guests were also quite good.
The part that let us down was how cramped the enclosures for the animals were. I expected being out west that the areas for these beautiful animals would have been vast, however
They were quite small and we we left feeling quite bad for the animals.
That probably explains why there were fewer animals than other zoos.
Food was average and overpriced, Nuggets and chips plus Hotdog and chips with small drinks $32.98.
Parking was challenging, the facility was easy to navigate overall average.
Maybe with time they may expand.
Thankyou

Wonderful Experience
May 2021
We recently visited Sydney Zoo for my daughter's birthday and apart from seeing all the wonderful exhibits and animals at the zoo plus lunch and coffee, which was excellent, we did 2 of the encounters. First was the giraffe encounter. We have done other giraffe encounters in the past but this was by far the best one we have done. We thoroughly enjoyed it. We had a lot of interaction with the giraffes and the staff were very friendly and helpful. Next was the Capybara encounter. Something we had really been looking forward to. It was such a treat to be up close to these wonderful animals and the staff were very informative and friendly. Altogether we had such a great day.

Loved the visit to Sydney Zoo. Well set out & easy to walk around with great viewing of the animals in large enclosures. Lots of school groups didn't impact at all on my experience.
