Owner description: Taking a ferry directly from Circular Quay to Taronga Zoo, located in the suburb of Mosman, is the first unexpected joy of visiting the animal park. Once there, the leisurely trails and opportunity to see some of Australia's distinct wildlife become apparent, as does the striking view of the Harbour Bridge from the seating at the aerial bird show. Advance booking can give you the chance to see koalas up close, or stay overnight and 'camp' in the zoo.

About 15 years ago, I went to the Sydney Zoo featuring an enclosed area holding two families of Gorillas. I witnessed a male from one family grab an infant from the other family and repeatedly smash its head against a tree to kill it. I complained to the head office of the zoo and they were very condescending. They said that the apes would do the same thing in their natural environment. Since the Sydney Zoo took them out of their natural environment and put them in a caged area, I think the Sydney Zoo has the duty to protect them from harm. Its been over 15 years but I will never forget my experience with the Sydney Zoo.

The best Zoo in Australia, but I am biased as a Volunteer there.

Your best value is to take a Gold Tour and be taken round by a Volunteer to see and touch the Australian Animals and be told all about them.

Your concierge at the Hotel can arrange this for you.
