What You Can Expect
Meet your Aboriginal guide and hear stories of the Cammeraigal people, and Cammeraigal country on which the zoo is set on. During Nura Diya, be entranced by the traditional Dreamtime stories of how the earth came to be created. These Dreamtime tales have been handed down over the millennia by the Aboriginal elders.
You’ll also see the animals that feature prominently in indigenous art, and be entertained by stories of Aboriginal song and dance as you enjoy an interactive experience with Australian wildlife, including koalas, kangaroos, wallabies and a vast array of birds.
Discover the importance of flora and fauna in Aboriginal culture, and learn the centuries-old traditional uses of plants for food and medicine.
This is a unique small-group tour (maximum of eight participants) that offers insight into the culture and traditions of Aboriginal people and their connection to the land.
After your tour, enjoy morning tea at the cafe and then spend the day exploring the many exhibits and shows. Join the regularly scheduled keeper talks to learn more about Taronga Zoo's wide variety of animals.
This tour was a highlight of our visit to Australia.
I loved this tour! It was exactly what I wanted- a nice overview of the plants and animals in terms of biology and folklore. Australia is such a rich land and heritage and this was a perfect way to learn a bit about it all. I would absolutely recommend this one. My guide (I think her name was Shayna) was personable, professional, very knowledgable, and a lot of fun!
