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.

It's a great place but seemed a bit confusing in the start but then you have to really walk n walk n walk to see the zoo throughly. The reason I went there was the Kangaroos and Koalas. Zoos are really a sad place as...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.
