The Zoo was great and taking the ferry is definitely the way to go.
Love this the very friendly staff on the cruise went out of their way to assist us couldn't fault the tour guide Elizabeth was such a pleasant lady
Such a fun visit! We enjoyed going with Captain Cook across Sydney Harbour. The folks were nice and the tour was laid back and fun. We hopped a train to Circular Quay which spits you right out at the warf. Captain Cook cruises was at warf 6 - but it's easy to find once you get off the train.
They take you right over to Taronga and you can take the sky rail up to the zoo entrance. Worth doing I think. The park felt a bit like I imagine Jurassic Park might feel like. : Lots of fun and some great animals to see. We had a blast.
One of the most beautiful zoos in the world. We enjoyed the birdshow, the seal show. Do not miss it if you go to Sydney.
Absolutely brilliant day. Zoo is excellent and travelling to and from on the ferry just adds to the whole experience.
The Taronga zoo is a must do in Sydney! By far the best zoo I and #39;ve ever been to! My personal favorite was the wallaby and kangaroo exhibit, they roam and will come up to you, if you and #39;re lucky you get to pet one! Only complaint is the cruise should have more transport times available. Great value!
Fabulous experience - finding the departure Iocation for the boat was easy and the boat ride was fun and interesting. The zoo was great.
A great day we'll run and very extensive Zoo with loads to see and do
A wonderful day out at the Zoo with beautiful views over Sydney Harbour. Fortunately, it was a fine day and we had a scenic ferry ride to and from the Zoo as well. If you have mobility issues, ask Zoo staff for the map which details the paths that are steepest and plan your excursion. Plenty of animals to see and plenty of rest stops and eateries and conveniences to make for a very enjoyable and family friendly day out. Some of the many school kids on tour were very noisy and I suspected that the animals were adversely affected by the excited and screaming nippers. We did our best to avoid them! Apart from that, we enjoyed our day at the Zoo enormously.
This is a really good trip and a good way of seeing the harbour during the day. Taronga Zoo is amazing, the seal and bird shows brilliant and of course the location and scenery breathtaking
Love the tram to get to the start of the Zoo, loved seeing the Taz and Kangaroos
The cruise around the harbor gave amazing views of the Sydney Opera House from all angles which was great And the time at the zoo was very enjoyable - a very pretty zoo.
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.
Greatly enjoyed harbour boat trip across to zoo and our day there was wonderful.
Such an amazing experience. We had a beautiful view of the harbour. We really enjoyed the zoo, it has certainly changed over the years.
