What people say

"You can literally spend the entire day here! TIPS FOR YOUR TARONGAZOO VISIT: 🐾 ANIMAL ENCOUNTERS The encounters get booked out within half an hour of the zoo opening! so enter and book your sesh ASAP! 🐾 BUY TICKETS ONLINE Pre purchase for the best prices! The website usually has the best deal however if you buy a package then there are huge discounts on other attractions too! 🐾 SKY SAFARI To manage the crowds better, the Sky Safari may close during the day, so after booking your encounter head straight here! If you're a ferry passenger you can only access it from the bottom entrance if you have already purchased the ticket - another reason to buy online before you go! 🐾 GO EARLYY Be there the moment they open! 🐾 PLAN THE ENTIRE DAY ON THE APP The tarongaapp is so helpful! With more than 12 keeper talks and shows you really want to schedule your day so you don't miss anything! 🐾 CARRY SNACKS! (don't feel the animals though!) We absolutely loved our visit! "
"Overlooking Sydney Harbour, Taronga Zoo is not just a wildlife sanctuary but an immersive experience with stunning views. Encounter iconic Australian animals and global species, participate in animal encounters, and contribute to conservation efforts, all while enjoying breathtaking vistas of the harbor and city skyline."
"Not exactly the same as seeing Australian animals in the wild but if you’re not planning to leave Sydney it’s the next best thing and offers an amazing view of the city. Accessible by ferry via the F2 route straight to the zoo and back to Circular Quay."
