The zookeeper guide and small group make it easy to get to know some of Australia's many distinctive animals, including koalas, kangaroos, wallabies and platypuses.
Great experience! To make the most of this we started our day by taking an early ferry from Circular Quay, then walking the zoo ourselves and spending as much time as we wanted in each area. Our guided tour began at 2:00 p.m. and Lisa, our Zookeeper Guide, was outstanding. Her knowledge of the species and her confidence in handling the individual animals made it a special experience for us. We were able to feed, pet and learn about many different Australian animals. We highly recommend this tour!
On a recent trip to Sydney, I booked this private tour of native Australian animals at Taronga Zoo. I'm not really a zoo person, but wanted to give this a try as these are not animals you see at every other zoo. My tour guide was Nat, and she was great! I got behind the scenes look at caring for the animals, and was even able to feed and hold some!
I highly recommend this tour for anyone who wants a more in depth experience...even if you don't normally like or go to zoos! I loved it, and would do it again. :
This tour was fantastic. You get a private tour from a zoo keeper and have access to all of Australia's native animals. From feeding the kangaroos to being up close to the koalas no touching and wallabes. Go behind the scenes to see how and what they are fed. The groups are small so all questions can be asked and answered.
What a great experience! Our tour guidezoo keeper was fantastic and extremely knowledgeable.
What an awesome behind the scenes tour! We're able to feed wallabies, cuddle with koalas and held/fed feather tail gliders. Learned about the animals and birds. Exceeded our expectations.
The behind the scenes tour at Taronga Zoo was an amazing experience. The zookeeper, Becky, was knowledgeable and delightful. We not only fed wallabys but going into animal enclosures, feeding animals, and holding some were beyond our expectations. We learned about native Australian animals and some that are endangered and why. Becky's passion for animals was evident. If you enjoy animals then this is your tour!
it was great . The zoo keeper was a great tour guide
Best thing we did in Sydney! Highly recommend this!
what a fantastic tour we had with Paul! It was so informative and fun for the whole family!! Highly recommend!
The tour was very interesting and the guide for the tour was excellent. We were taken into areas where we could feed some of the animals. We were in the cage with the koalas, but you are not permitted to touch them. It is not a cheap tour, but the experience made it worthwhile.
