Make your way across Sydney Harbour, then select one of two complimentary transport options — shuttle bus or Sky Safari cable car— to reach the zoo's main entrance, which is located at the top of the hill. The cable car flies above the animal enclosures, giving you a sneak preview of Asian elephants, big apes and other critters down below.
A zoo guide meets you at the designated time to start your 1.5-hour Australian Animals tour. Walking around the grounds with a zoo guide, you'll learn first-hand about the animals and zoo operations. Find out detailed information about the kangaroo, wallaby, echidna, koala, Australian birds and more during your tour, which also explores a replica of a sandstone gorge that is typical of those found in the Blue Mountains. Remember to bring your camera for great photo ops with the critters.
Get the VIP treatment as you visit off-limits areas of the zoo and enjoy face-to-fur interactions with the animals. Since your small-group numbers have a maximum of eight participants, you'll have an intimate and personalized experience with a knowledgeable zoo guide showing you around the zoo and its inner core. It's the perfect tour for animal lovers!
After your guided tour, enjoy the rest of the day to explore the zoo at your leisure. If you have worked up an appetite, there are several restaurant and cafe options available, with sit-down or casual dining choices that you can choose. Taronga Zoo also has many picnic areas. You are welcome to bring your own picnic to enjoy while soaking in spectacular views that overlook Sydney Harbour.
