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.

We loved the zoo! Once we figured out how to purchase our ferry tickets and where to board, it was smooth sailing. The cable car from the zoo entrance to the top was a great feature that allowed us to take a few good pictures, and the trails and signage at the zoo was were really good. We enjoyed all the exhibits, animals, talks, and shows. The sea lion show was especially fun to watch. We're in our 70's and we had a great time. The photo ops are outstanding.

WE took the ferry from Wharf 2, purchasing a separate ticket...much cheaper that way. you can buy a 2 day pass for the ferry which will take you to the zoo and 2 all the islands if you are going to be there for couple of days It includes the zoo ticket, gondala ride at the zoo, and transportation from circular quay pronounced key to/from for 54. Good deal otherwise indivual round trip ferry ticket is 7.50 zoo ticket 35. WEll with it. FUn relaxing day, enjoying nature walks . BEautiful view of harbor and bridges from gondalo. HIghly Recommend. Easy to navigate from start to finish.

My only suggestion is to get there early and plan on staying all day. If possible take public transport Bus or Ferry as the car park fills quickly. Lots to see and do including lots of walking. Bring water bottles there are free refill stations around the Zoo. Several new food and drink locations not overpriced and the food quality is what you would expect from fast food places. The coffee is medium quality. An enjoyable, tiring day.
