Owner description: Discover the best of Australia at Wild Life Sydney Zoo - the Home of the Aussie Big Five. Step into an animal adventure and meet your favourite iconic Australian animals – meet cute Koalas in Gum Tree Valley or have your photo taken with them at Koala Encounters. Head to Wallaby Cliffs to interact with Ringo the wombat and then hop to Kangaroo Walk-About to walk amongst the Kangaroos. The Platypus Pools are where you’ll find Jackie and Zoey, their resident platypus pals, before entering the daring world of Kakadu Gorge where you’ll come eye to eye with a huge Saltwater Crocodile, and much more. Wild Life Sydney Zoo features interactive displays, entertaining keeper talks and enhanced walk-through habitats including Koala Encounters, Kangaroo Walk-About and Butterfly Tropics. Wild Life Sydney Zoo is open from 10.00am and located in the heart of the city, at Aquarium Wharf, Darling Harbour.

I seriously can’t believe I spent $42 and another $20 for a picture with the koalas, let alone any of my time. The “zoo” is a sad sad place with maybe like 10 exhibits, none of which are worth seeing. I’m bewildered by the fact that anyone has rated this place above one star. Do yourself a favor and buy a nice meal instead.

Hey Jacob S,

Thank you for your feedback.
We are disappointed to hear that you didn't have a positive experience with us here at Wildlife Sydney Zoo.
Wildlife Sydney Zoo allows you to come face to face and even eye to eye with many of Australia's best animals and reptiles including The Aussie Big 5 (Wombat, Koala, Kangaroo, Saltwater Crocodile and the Platypus), all in the heart of the city.

We also have a great range of offers on multi attraction tickets that are available both at our ticket desk or online. Giving you the opportunity to pick up some great savings on all of our attraction within Sydney.
If you have any other feedback that you would like to discuss, feel free to email wls.pos@merlinentertainments.com.au.

Thanks again for your feedback.

Kind regards,
Bede

Average I must say . Just that you get to see koala , kangaroo , wombat and other Two local animals . If you have time better to go to a bigger zoo.

Hello AKRCH,

Just want to thank you for visiting Wildlife Sydney and also leaving feedback on your visit.

Being located in the middle of Darling Harbour does mean that our zoo is slightly different to others. But it still allows our guests the opportunity to come face to face with some of Australia's amazing animals and reptiles. Even eye to eye with a Salt Water Crocodile.
Once again, thank you for visiting Wildlife Sydney Zoo.

Kind regards,
Bede

All the popular Australian animals under one roof! If you’re tight for time and you have already seen elephants, monkeys and lions in your life time, go for this. It’s focused to bring you just animals of Australia. The price is reasonable if you purchase online for the 3 in 1 package deal which includes Sea Life and Madame Tussaud. You can forgo the Sydney Tower because that does not include that bit of glass floor sky walk ;)

Hello Carl S,

Cheers, for taking the time to leave feedback on your visit to Wildlife Sydney.

You're correct in saying that we have all the popular Australia Animals under one roof, including Koalas, Kangaroos and even a Salt Water Crocodile. Also, our location makes it perfect for those that are visiting Sydney and are wanting to see those animals.

Indeed, purchasing tickets online and a multi ticket does save you money as well as allows you to skip to ticket queues and head straight to the attraction entry plus there are 3 attraction right next door to one another. Making for a very easy day out.

Thanks again for visiting and we really hope to see you again.

Kind regards,
Bede

Australian fauna in a nutshell, an excellent formula for those who have no chance for a longer journey. The koala experience is definitely the coolest. They are cute and hilarious. The staff is very much commited to what they do ie. when feeding the echidnas, you can see that they really like what they do. A great attraction for children and adults.

This was a wonderful experience. Upon arrival, our guide, Justine, took the group on a tour of the zoo, seeing such animals as Tasmanian devils, quokkas and kangaroos. Justine was knowledgeable, pleasant and funny throughout the tour. Once we got to the koala exhibit, we had a delicious breakfast where we would could watch the koalas and have our photos taken with them. I would recommend this to anyone and they would be lucky to have Justine as their tour guide.
