It appears that one or two of the earlier reviews refer to Taronga Zoo in Sydney North rather than the Wildlife Centre at Darling Harbour. For the avoidance of doubt, this reviews is for the Wildlife Centre at Darling Harbour.
Although not a zoo in the traditional sense (i.e., no fields or paddocks, no cages or outdoor enclosures), it is a splendid showcase for the varied and abundant wildlife of Australia. It may be small, but it’s well laid out and interesting. It's also very central and easily accessible. The huge saltwater crocodile is a fascinating, and fearsome exhibit, but the variety of other dangerous or poisonous wildlife that Australia harbours also makes you realise that Australian wildlife is not all about cuddly koalas of winsome wallabies that are also there!
A reasonable snack can be obtained and eaten at the small outdoor café while looking at koalas or overlooking the kangaroos, and overall we spent just over three hours happily meandering around. I found it relaxing, interesting and enjoyable, and although not cheap for the size of the place, we felt it was much better than the aquarium next door
