Taronga Zoo is set in one of the world’s best views, sweeping across Sydney Harbour taking in the bridge and the Opera House. The surroundings alone are worth the trip. The animal enclosures are good, but feel a little dated in spots, but great for...More

If you're ok with non-Australian animals and paying a fortune, go right ahead. If you'd like to see Australian animals, go elsewhere, like the Koala Park (Sydney, too).

I was amazed at the variety & size of the place. Definitely do not miss if you are in Sydney. The ferry takes you right there. Although NSW doesn't allow you to hold or touch the Koalas (state law), they are still a must for...More

We toured the Australian Animals exhibits after hours with a private tour group. I imagine it gets quite crowded at this zoo, so being able to visit it more privately was absolutely fantastic--I highly recommend that if it's within your means, although regardless the zoo...More
