Went to the zoo with two kids 8 and 12. I was originally from Sydney and Taronga Zoo is definately one of those things that are on the 'must do' listing when you are in Sydney. We went and did the animal encounter with the Giraffe's which was around $25. You had to book in when you got there and apparently it fills up fairly quickly.
We did go earlier this year and when we went the zoo had a fair amount of exhibits which were being refurbished. The Meercats are always very entertaining and a must to walk past with the kids.
We went over on the ferry from Circular Quay so it certainly adds that extra special to the day. On the way back we had to wait for a ferry and so went for a skinny dip down at the beach next door (it is relatively secluded..lol).
We took a picnic lunch over of cold meats and salads which we ate at this lovely bench which overlooked the harbour. This meant it was lovely and quiet for us and also cheaper.
I'm not sure that I would go again if we were back in Sydney with the kids, but certainly on the must see once list.
