Taronga zoo was well worth the 3 1/2 hour walk around. Even then we didn’t see it all. The Seal show was a must, times are displayed or you can ask a member of staff. The feeding of the giraffes and koalas was great also....More

I love my personal encounter with the Koala Bear and the Owl. I also saw them in pictures and movies. I was fortunate to be up close to them. Amazing Animal Encounters. Thank you for a memorable experience.

We spent a whole day at the zoo and absolutely loved it - too much to see - we ran out of time - must definitely go back next time in Sydney

With a variety of outdoor attractions, the
sophisticated harbour suburb of Mosman has something
for everyone. Shoppers can stroll Military Road for
its unique offering of antiques, designer labels, and
hip restaurants and cafes. Nature lovers can take in
spectacular bushwalks like the Taronga to Balmoral
walk, while families can enjoy snorkeling in the
sheltered beaches of Balmoral Beach or scuba diving at

The pathway is along the coast and easy to follow, there are a few sections where you go on the road, one that comes to mind is where 40 Baskets Reserve is at Balgowlah. The yards of residences skirt the water at this point... More

Most the ferries route for both Taronga Zoo and Manly Beach only leave from Circular Quay so you would have to go via CQ for the trip. Connecting journey are not yet available during my last visit last Sept 2017.
