Taking a ferry directly from Circular Quay to Taronga Zoo, located in the suburb of Mosman, is the first unexpected joy of visiting the animal park. Once there, the leisurely trails and opportunity to see some of Australia's distinct wildlife become apparent, as does the striking view of the Harbour Bridge from the seating at the aerial bird show. Advance booking can give you the chance to see koalas up close, or stay overnight and 'camp' in the zoo.

We went to the zoo via the captain cook boat tour. It's a very large zoo with a lot of animals! I'm not normally a zoo person but while in Sydney wanted to see it! My son and I enjoyed to zoo!

We spent a very enjoyable few hours at the zoo, and got there in time for the Flight Show, which is always one of my favourites. The keepers are very knowledgeable and the variety of birds they show, from Buzzard to Eagle, Owls and parrots,...More

Too class zoo made all the better by the ferry ride across Sydney Harbour to get there and then the cable car ride on arrival ( make sure you buy entrance ticket in advance ) If you like Zoos you will not be disappointed.

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

You can interact and even feed the Koalas at Wild Life Sydney for an additional price, I think it's around $20-50. It's at Darling Harbour so it's very accessible from CBD.

Yes. And if you do the behind the scenes tour with a zookeeper they will wake them up. They are smaller than you think!
