What You Can Expect

Sydney Wildlife World Entrance Ticket

After making your own way to WILD LIFE Sydney, avoid waiting in long lines and walk directly into the exhibits with your skip-the-line ticket.

Take a walk on the wild side to see Australia's amazing and diverse flora and fauna. Meet one of Australia's national icons, the koala, then head over to see the yellow-footed rock wallabies. Explore the 2-story aviary and butterfly house that is home to a fluttering flock of colorful birds and butterflies, then marvel at the creepy crawlies in the reptile and insect exhibits.

Make sure to meet Rex, an impressive 16.5-foot (5-meter) saltwalter crocodile, who lives in a habitat that recreates the Kakadu Gorge of the Northern Territory. Weighing more than a small car, Rex is one of the world's largest crocodiles.

Visiting Wild Life Sydney gives one the opportunity to see several animals native to Australia up close and in person in a short period of time. You can be in a "walkabout" area with kangaroos and wallabies and also stand a few feet away from koalas. There are a number informative talks during the day as well. Be sure to buy your tickets online in order to save significantly on the entrance fee.

We had limited time in Sydney, but wanted to see some authentic Australian animals and visiting Wildlife World was perfect. We even got to get up close and personal with a koala! The kids loved it as very interactive.

A good place for the family to go. The kids will enjoy the different species of animals in this zoo.
There are many Australian species to look at and the koalas and kangaroos are the highlights here.
Recommend you get a multiple attraction pass to save money if you want to explore other attractions.
