It's just worth it for the kiddos, the location and if you have never seenthe Australian animals. Other than that, it's better to go to the Taronga zoo. There's much more variety of animals for a little bit more of money.More

We bought a package to the SeaLife aquarium and the Zoo. It has Australian animals only. Whilst there were many native animals, it was confined into a small space and I, personally was disappointed as I had taken a traveller who was visiting from overseas.More
