This behind the scenes encounter was fabulous. Our zookeeper guide took us behind the scenes to interact, feed and have pictures with koalas, bilabys and wombats. This was a 2 1/2 hour personal tour with an actual animal zookeeper to teach us about the inner workings of the zoo. Worth every penny!!!!

Excellent experience. You get to know so much more with a zoo keeper (we had two for my sister and I!) would recommend it to animal lovers

Completely worth the price! Going behind the scenes made the experience fun and informative, but the true highlight was being right next to the koala moms with their newly emerged babies!

If you love animals, this tour will exceed all your expectations!!!!! Our tour guide, Paul Davies, gave us a comprehensive behind the scenes tour of life at the zoo. There were only 6 of us on the tour. We got to see the kitchen where the staff prepared balanced meals for the different types of animals and watched a zookeeper hand feed a Sugar Glider. We spent lots of time with Prince George, the Bilby in his own private nocturnal accommodations. The Wallabies were so soft. I got to touch all the animals except the koalas!!!!! (the laws have changed to protect them) Much to my delight my husband caught this very special kiss! You don't want to miss this very special tour!

Fantastic tour...definitely worth the money and time for Wild Australia Experience. The zookeeper Tim was awesome, friendly and very informative and getting up close to the animals and seeing the back workings of the zoo was one of the highlights of our trip to Sydney.

Great tour at a great zoo! Our zookeeper tour guide Sean was knowledgeable, friendly, and handled pouring rain with humor and a guest in a wheelchair with kindness. We were able to get up close with koalas, kangaroos, etc and even met the royal bilby George! I would highly recommend the tour if you want to get a bit closer to some of the animals and be able to speak to a zookeeper. After included treats, we spend the day at the wonderful Taronga Zoo! Take the ferry over from Circular Quay and make sure to take the Sky Safari at the Zoo.

Such an awesome tour! We were a group of three and our tour guide was perfect! We went behind the scenes and she explained a lot of interesting stuff about the animals, the zoo and the environment. Best thing is to come close to the koalas and learn about and hold some of the Australian nocturnal animals. Totally worth the money!

My 15 year old niece and I did this tour and it was the highlight of our trip to Sydney. There is normally up to 8 on this tour, but we were the only ones. Our guide Jen was brilliant. We learn so much and I was forced out of my comfort zone to pat and hold all sorts of animals. Going behind the scenes was fascinating, including finding ourselves behind the glass of the enclosures looking out at other visitors. Seeing a wee furless baby leg pop out of th pouch of one of the koalas was pretty amazing. It is an investment, but worth every cent. Do it!

What a fabulous experience! I had never thought about what goes on behind the scenes at the zoo. We saw everything in the Australian animals area including the food prep kitchen, the sleeping quarters for some of the animals, and the bilby in a secret passageway (the one who was scheduled to meet the Royal Family!). Of course, the highlight was to go inside the koala pen for a photo and the marsupial pen to feed a wallaby. Our zookeeper guide was so knowledgeable, our group was so small (8), and the animals were so cooperative that we couldn't possibly have anything but a great time.

Beautiful zoo, great environment, the behind the scenes tour was very informative, educational, and interesting. We had a very small group of 6 people. worth the price and your time.
