Overview

Take in panoramic views of top Sydney landmarks as you cruise through Sydney Harbour en route to Taronga Zoo. Your package includes round-trip cruise from Darling Harbour or Circular Quay to the zoo, and a ride on the Sky Safari Gondola, which whisks you uphill from the boat dock to the main entrance of Taronga Zoo. From the gondola, get an early peek at some of the zoo's inhabitants, such as giraffes, big apes, and native animals like kangaroos and koalas.
  • Sydney Harbour cruise and entrance ticket to Taronga Zoo
  • Hear informative commentary on board the cruise
  • View Sydney landmarks like the Sydney Opera House and Harbour Bridge from the cruise and the zoo
  • Ride the Sky Safari Gondola across the Asian Rainforest and Amazon exhibits
  • Enjoy keeper talks and animal feedings that are scheduled daily
  • Have time to explore Taronga Zoo at your own pace
Make your own way to the boat dock at either Darling Harbour or Circular Quay to board the spacious vessel that takes you out on the waters of Sydney Harbour. Soak up views of the waterfront, skyline, and famous landmarks including Sydney Harbour Bridge, Sydney Opera House and Fort Denison as your boat cruises across the scenic harbor to the north shore, where you disembark for the zoo.
With your Taronga Zoo admission ticket and cruise, you can take the Sky Safari gondola from the waterfront up the hill to the main entrance of the zoo. Peek out of the windows of the fully-enclosed gondola cabin for an aerial perspective on some of the zoo's residents.
Once inside the zoo, enjoy taking in the many exhibits at your own pace. More than 2,900 animals live here in 10 themed areas — including Wild Australia, Wild Asia and the Great Southern Oceans. The enclosures mimic the natural habitat of each creature. Check the daily schedule for keeper talks, which focus on animals such as Tasmanian devils, little penguins, giraffes, lemurs and koalas. You may want to watch the seals in action at Seal Theatre or catch the free-flight bird show, where birds of prey demonstrate their hunting skills.
Enjoy sweeping views of iconic sights such as Sydney Harbour Bridge and Sydney Opera House both from your boat cruise and the Taronga Zoo, aka 'the zoo with the view.'
Taronga Zoo also has many picnic areas; feel free to bring a picnic basket and enjoy lunch with views of Sydney Harbour, or purchase food at one of the on-site cafes or restaurants. When you have finished your zoo visit, simply return to the dock to catch the cruise back to Circular Quay or Darling Harbour.

Make sure you arrive early at the dock to trade your printed voucher in for your ticket to get on the ferry. The ferry ride was nice and you get nice views of the harbor. The zoo was fun and you can take it at your own pace. Layout was a little confusing, so make sure you get a map at the entrance. Special viewings and feedings are scheduled so make sure you know when they are. Food in cafe is expensive, we just had a large breakfast and only purchased a snack. My husband and I took the first ferry around 9am and were satisfied with everything that we saw by 3pm. I was glad that we booked this tour. There is an extra charge for encounters with the animals that you can purchase, but are not included in the price of this tour. We enjoyed seeing the Taronga Zoo.

This was a really convenient way to have all my arrangements made and vouchers in hand before I left home. The zoo was great with beautiful views of the city. Give yourself time to stop at the Captain Cook ticket counter as you will have to exchange your Viator voucher for a ticket.

The hop on hop off on Big Bus is not good value for money, since the recorded tour description is provided through ear phones and not always clear and is can be interfered with other people loud conversation. there are other alternatives of free walking tours of the center and then supplemented by using the public transportation to reach other places.

Some zoo exhibits are closed, but it is still a nice day. The overhead tram ride gives you great views and a downhill walk, which is appreciated in summer. The hop on hop off ferry is a nice way to get around too.
