In general we were very pleased with our Sydney Attraction iventure card and the value it provided. The purchase process through Viator from the UK was straightforward and it was easy to pick up the card in Darling Harbour.The one disappointing use we made of it was more down to the Hard Rock Café than the card itself. We paid an additional premium to use it in the HR Café where the food was poor and the 'free' t-shirt included is just a beach t-shirt really.
Was good but some of the attractions could be done on your own and cost less. Also not enough time to see the Blue Mountains. Takes 2 hours both ways and need way more time to get your value out of this one. Only saw 3 on this tour.

Sydney Attractions Pass: SEA LIFE Aquarium, Sydney Tower Eye, WILD LIFE Zoo and Madame Tussauds
SEA LIFE so-so, WILD LIFE wonderful
, Dec 2019
SEA LIFE Sydney Aquarium did have a really nice penguin excursion--a little boat ride (bring your jacket!) through a refrigerated penguinarium where the king penguins are stars of the show. It was a lot of fun watching them mug for the visitors while the keepers were trying to get them to step on a scale. The penguins alone were worth about half of the admission price, but think hard about whether you really want to spend the other half just to see them. The rest of the aquarium is the sort of stuff you could see anywhere (with the possible exception of rescued dugong Pig). But WILD LIFE Sydney Zoo was worth every penny. They have every Australian animal you can think of, and the animals are very easy to view and photograph. (Only the Tazzie devil was hiding.) Adults who are quiet and well-behaved may get invited behind the scenes for an even closer look. I had an amazing experience with some wallabies which cost me nothing extra. Although (or possibly because) it is small, WILD LIFE gives you a better look at Australia's wild life than the much posher Toranga Zoo across the harbour.
The end point has been changed (from my last visit in 2005) but before that it was better (silent: just the music and not the history of the tuetle) and it has a wider screen as well. I think there was more shark before that.
Tower eye is not good at night and I think it should be closed after darkness. The 3d glasses didn't work!
Visit your choice of two, three or four of Sydney’s top attractions with the convenient and economical Sydney combo pass. Choose from a list of five options: SEA LIFE Sydney Aquarium, WILD LIFE Sydney Zoo, Sydney Tower Eye or Madame Tussauds Sydney. The Sydney Tower Eye observation deck offers sweeping views over Sydney Harbour and the city. The zoo and aquariums feature an amazing array of native Australian wildlife. Pose for photos with life-like wax statues of your favorite celebrities at Madame Tussauds.
It was wonderful experience for all of us. I would like to go again in a bit less busy period as we weren’t able to have a penguin look through the boat ride. It was 30 minutes waiting for 2 minutes ride and children were panic as well.
Bought the combination ticket for two attractions. It was not clear from their booking page that one of the attractions need to be done on the selected date (we thought it was an open ticket for both attractions).
Booking aside, both the aquarium and the zoo had some positive aspects, but also things to consider.
The aquarium had a good variety of sea creatures. The highlights were the penguins, the sharks, touching starfish and sea cucumbers and seeing the dugong. Unfortunately, the experience was marred by overly echoed hallways with sound effects and music so loud we could hardly hear each other speak. The toilettes visited half way through needed attention (overfilled bins, dirty floor and seat).The overall experience took about an hour with an unavoidable 15 minutes spent at the gift shop (which forces all outgoing traffic through it, hence those with kids end up stuck there for a while). The staff were nice. However, the aquarium puts patrons on the spot to have their photo taken upon entering making it difficult for some to decline (we kindly declined as we were already expecting this after navigating their website the day before). Paid prints are put on display at the exit.
The zoo should really be advertised as a mini-indoors zoo. The variety for such a small space is good with encounters with the emus, koalas and a huge salt-water crocodile. The experience took 30 minutes including stopping to feed the emus.
Overall the combination ticket increases the value of visiting these attractions, but we still found it overpriced. If you happen to be within walking distance from the area and have spare cash and time then it is worth the visit for kids perhaps. Otherwise, it is hard to justify the visit, particularly when considering the added cost of commuting and/or parking.
Be amazed and take a journey of discovery through SEA LIFE Sydney Aquarium’s themed zones including the Penguin Expedition. Experience the sub-Antarctic during and interactive exhibit to meet spectacular King and Gentoo penguins. Meet face-to-fin with over 13,000 animals from 700 different species including majestic dugongs, grey nurse sharks, jellyfish, and an array of tropical fish!

Very Nice View! Nice 4-D Movie and Overall Operation!
, Jan 2020
This is a very "touristy" thing to do, but wanted to go up The Eye to see a nice sunset / evening view of surrounding Sydney. Yes, there is one big building blocking the best view of the harbour, but it is still so breathtaking to see a major city from high above, especially at night.
Pictures are taken of you in front of a green screen and they put you in scenes ranging in front of the Opera House and Bridge to a very funny photo of you in the palm of "King Koala" hanging on to the Tower Tower just like King Kong!
At the end of your visit, they try and sell you a photo book (can't remember the price)... we din;t go for that.. then offered 1 picture for like $20 or $25... we didn't go for that... but received a code to go online (within a week) and get the photos for like $10. Do that and not buy the book, unless you want to, We did buy the photo book on our Opera House visit, but we planned to and that is just the most iconic building in Sydney.
Overall, it's just going up a tower and looking around, but it was a nice visit, with friend, helpful workers and a nice view!
Enjoy breathtaking views of Sydney and its surroundings from the tallest structure in the city, the Sydney Tower Eye. Standing on the Observation Deck, perched 250 meters (820 feet) above the ground, soak up 360-degree panoramic views across Sydney Harbour, the skyline and the Pacific Ocean.

Includes admission to the 4D Cinema, which takes you on a 4D journey over Sydney landmarks such as the Sydney Opera House.
We got to the zoo and they seemed to be concerned what to do with us. There was confusion with our reservation thru Viator and the group was already full. They offered to send us with volunteers on a different behind the scenes tour and we accepted. The volunteers were great and we did enjoy the tour but it was not what we had originally booked. I am not sure if this was a Viator or zoo issue but the zoo did try to make amends.
This behind the scenes tour was amazing. It focused on Aussie animals. I was the only one on the tour so I was able to spend considerable time with the koalas and kangaroos, as well as in the nocturnal area.

My daughter and I had a blast at Luna Park in Sydney. Redeeming the voucher from Viator took a few minutes once we got into Luna Park (line was a little long), but other than that we had a great day at the Park.

We had a lovely stroll around the gardens over the Luna Chinese New Year weekend , we could have stayed longer , hard to believe this tranquility is in the hustle and bustle of sydney and you would have know idea .
I visited the Chinese Garden with my 3 year old and she loved it. We arrived just in time for the fish feeding at 11:30 where there was a nice man who gave fish food refills to children who asked. The fish food also attracted the lizards, which my daughter found exciting, feeding them as well as the fish. The rest of our time there was spent exploring the garden.
It is a beautiful place to sit and relax alone or with friends. It provides plenty of shaded areas to sit down and enjoy the view of the waterfalls, Chinese structures, and greenery. It's also a wonderful place for children to explore with its rocky steps to the top of the waterfall, winding paths, exotic plants, lots of Koi fish, lizards and a couple of turtles too!

Highly recommended!! It’s something we will never forget Alex our guide was extremely knowledgeable, funny, and we saw and learnt so much of how it all operated backstage! The breakfast at the end was excellent!
Nabilah was a fantastic guide with wonderful energy. The tour was well-organised and very comprehensive. Learned the story behind architecture, the construction process, and the inner workings of the Opera House. Highly recommended.
This is probably one of the top Sydney attractions, aside from actually seeing a show at the SOH. Our guide was wonderful, and the whole tour was very entertaining and informative. Just go, you will not regret it. Cheers!
