What You Can Expect

Sydney Taronga Zoo General Entry Ticket

The Zoo's Education Officers will help you get up close and personal with many of the animals.

Sydney Taronga Zoo opened in 1916 and has since become a major force for animal care, research and conservation. You can take the ferry from Circular Quay to the zoo, a scenic ride that lasts about 10 minutes and gives you stunning waterside views of the harbor city. Don’t miss a ride on the Sky Safari cable car, which whisks you high above the zoo grounds, giving you a bird’s-eye view of zoo inhabitants like elephants and big apes. It also provides photo ops of Sydney Harbour and the Sydney Opera House.

Your Sydney Taronga Zoo ticket is valid for general admission to the zoo and the Sky Safari, the only cable car in Sydney. Once inside the zoo, proceed around ten themed areas where the animals live in surroundings similar to their natural habitats. Some of the featured themes focus on Wild Australia, the Great Southern Oceans and Wild Asia. During the daily keeper talks, you can witness an in-depth presentations about specific animals such as Tasmanian devils, giraffes, lemurs, little penguins and koalas.

Other optional activities such as animal encounters and guided tours can be booked at your own expense. If you're inspired to try swinging through the trees, Wild Ropes offers a low and high level ropes course for an adrenaline-fueled activity suitable for adults and older kids. You might even spot koalas, kangaroos, wallabies and emus as you make your way through the trees. Education Officers can offer you and your family a learning experience with live animals and plants in their natural environments, and develop an understanding about wildlife of all types.

Fantastic experience. Truthfully, we only got to see half the zoo - and concentrated on the Australian animals and the Kids area and the Seals. That itself will take a few hours with a 5-year-old. The beauty of the zoo is that there is so much information, and the exhibits are so nicely placed. The Australian walkabout is especially lovely with the kangaroos just sitting there in front. The seal show was superb - short, informative, and wonderfully coordinated. The play area is a good place for adults to relax while kids go wild. Overall - definitely recommended. Tip: Keep plenty of time in hand for the ferry - it can get really crowded and you may end up waiting 30 more minutes for the next one.

Amazing zoo to view some of the well-known animals in Australia: koalas, kangaroos and tasmanian devils! Also one of the zoo with the nicest views of Sydney. The place can get crowded in the afternoon so try getting there early. The gondola ride, included with the ticket is really nice!

Myself and my two teenage daughters went to the zoo. Viator is great we did not have to wait on any line for tickets. Also our ticket included the overhead ride from the ferry stop to the front entrance. This was great because you got to see the zoo from up above. There are so many animals to see. They are laid out nicely. The best thing was that some exhibits you can walk through the exhibit right next to the animals. This was the best zoo we had ever gone to. Lots to see. Many paths to follow. You can spend a whole day. A must see when you go to Sydney.

The zoo has a diverse range of displays and attractions that transports you to different natural environments. The seal show and bird show are both a highlight - entertaining and informative. However a trip to Taronga Zoo is worth it for the Sky Safari gondola ride alone from the harbour foreshore to top of the zoo, and back providing wonderful views. As a matter of fact the whole zoo has stunning views back over sydney harbour to the city that you can take in as you make your way through the native to overseas exhibits. You couldnt ask for a better panorama of the city. The zoo is set on the winding hillside of the north harbour and is a perfect setting, very appealing for families or visitors to sydney.
