It was really fun and nice going to Wild Sydney. You could have your picture taken with the Koalas and view the Tasmanian Devils. They had a large croc in a tank that was pretty awesome to watch.

We really enjoyed visiting here! We got to see animals and other creatures (snakes, and bugs) that are native to Australia. I enjoyed seeing my first koala close up! I would definitely visit again!

This is one of Sydney's main Attractions and costs as you would expect to pay for a main Attraction. however, cheaper tickets can be bought on their official website www.wildlifesydney.com.au, esp if you dont mind going in the evening mid week; prices can drop as low as $26 for an Adult.

You have the ability to buy an animal encounter from the scaled to the fluffy. Holding of animals (koalas) is limited by the laws of MSW, its good to see animal welfare a priority in a mainstream facility like this.

You walk through corridors with glass windows that look out into the exhibits (much like the aquarium next door), this allows you to get quite close to the animals. As the windows are tinted in the animals favour your presence up close to them has no effect. There are 3 exhibits where you can walk through the actual areas occupied by the inhabitants (a long a path).
Re entry can be achieved by asking for a stamp on your hand at the gift shop. I am an animal person so by watching all the shows i can easily spend the day here, like at Taronga Zoo. If you dont stay to watch the many talks and shows you will not spend much more than and hour or two.

All in all a fun day out, or a good way to kill and hour or two.

I'm not much of a zoo person...especially if they are sad, depressing unkempt zoos. But this Zoo is worth it. You get to see all the indigenous species of Australian animals and it's location is amazing with great views over the water.

This used to be my favourite place to take kids but it is half the size it used to be. They have taken half the zoo and turned it into Madame taussades and so a lot of the exhibits are gone or have been made much smaller. We were in and out in less than an hour and my daughter was not impressed.
