What You Can Expect

Sydney Harbour Cruise with Taronga Zoo Entry Ticket

Sydney Harbour Cruise and Taronga Zoo

Enjoy a day out at the award-winning Taronga Zoo, home to more than 2,900 exotic and native species. Learn about the different animals through one of the many free zoo-keeper talks; be entertained by the playful seals at the Seal Theatre; and watch the famous free-flight bird show, where birds of prey show off their hunting skills.

Getting to Taronga Zoo is part of the fun! The zoo is located across Sydney Harbour, north of the city. You’ll depart from Darling Harbour or Circular Quay on a Sydney Harbour cruise, and enjoy fantastic views of the harbor, city skyline and famous landmarks like the Opera House and Harbour Bridge. As you listen to onboard commentary, take advantage of the great photo opportunities.

Enter the zoo in style and take a ride on the Sky Safari Gondola. Skim across the top of the Asian Rainforest and see the orangutans swinging in the trees; then pass over the winding river of the AGL Amazon exhibit, home to animals from South America.

When you’re done at the zoo, you’ll return to Darling Harbour or Circular Quay on the Sydney Harbour cruise.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended March 2015

the cruise was scenic and relaxing, with the lovely crew lady giving us the tour as we passed by landmarks. i'd advise getting to taronga zoo earlier than we did we caught the 1.30pm boat and reached taronga at 2pm. 2 to 5pm is NOT ENOUGH time to walk around the zoo without rushing! the zoo is huuuugggee! sadly the sky gondola was out of order and we had to take the bus up to the top and walk our way down which is easier than viewing the zoo by climbing upwards.

the ride back from the zoo, we took the stop at darling harbour which was great as we could do more stuff from there rather than returning to where we started out from circular quay.

Booking through Viator was a much cheaper option than booking directly through Taronga. The price included the ferry across which had some witty commentary! I have no hesitation in recommending a day at the zoo and I strongly recommend booking through Viator as you will make a saving.
