The Taronga Zoo’s Nura Diya (country or camp) tour looks at Australia’s wildlife and land from an indigenous perspective.

Begin your tour on the Sky Safari gondola. Ride in a fully enclosed cabin that floats over the animal enclosures on a hill that overlooks Sydney Harbour. Along with an aerial view of the zoo, you’ll enjoy great photo ops of the Sydney skyline, and waterfront landmarks including Sydney Harbour Bridge.

Your Aboriginal guide introduces your small group to the history of the Cammeraigal people, who are the traditional owners of the land where the zoo is located. Hear ancient legends about the earth’s creation, also known as Dreamtime stories. Your guide explains traditional uses of plants for medicine and food, shares insights about how Australia’s Aboriginal people relate to the natural world, and points out the critters that make regular appearances in indigenous arts.

Throughout the tour, enjoy close encounters with Australian animals such as kangaroos, wallabies, echidnas, emus and birds. You may even get to cuddle a koala!

Wrap up your tour by chatting with your guide over morning tea at the zoo’s cafe, a perfect chance to ask any remaining questions. Afterward, have the rest of the day free to explore the zoo at your leisure.
