Give it a miss and head to Taronga Zoo, Taronga is in an awesome location over looking the harbour and has all the same wildlife plus some.

“Check out Austalia's native species”
Reviewed May 13, 2013

Came here especially for the Koalas and Kangaroos, but there were more interesting animals. The talks were educative and fun! If you go solo better read the information provided for each animal, or time will fly quickly. The entrance ticket was pricy though.

“Perfect for tourists, families and people of all ages!”
Reviewed May 7, 2013

i didnt realise this was a zoo as it is not as big or open as most others. Nevertheless it is amazing how much they put in such a small space.

I am 24 and I found it so much fun and very informative. I would come again the next time I go to Sydney.

Rex the crocodile was great but make sure to listen to the talk given by the animated zoo keeper!
The area with the butterflies everywhere was especially magical and will never forget that moment when two landed on my head! There are just too many cool things to list: the koala enclosure, the petting area, nocturnal animal area. You just must see it for yourself!

I recommend buying tickets online for a discount or buying the package deal of this attraction, Madame Tussauds, Sydney tower, and Sealife for maximum enjoyment.

“Not bad, given how small it was.”
Reviewed May 5, 2013

Sydney Zoo did a good job to put so much into such a small space.

The location is fantastic and it is not a bad place to visit, if you are into Australian animals and you have kids.

Price-wise, it is not cheap, but since we are in Sydney, we went for it.

Our visit was quite quick, about 1 hour.

“Wild Sydney Zoo”
Reviewed May 2, 2013

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.
