What To Expect

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 gives you stunning waterside views of the harbor city.

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. x

Ripped off

You advertise as cheaper to buy on line, but when I got to the zoo I found it would have been cheaper to buy at the desk as they have the options of family tickets and discounts for seniors. Also it would have been easy to buy there as short queue.
Nice zoo for kids
Annette_R, Sept 2023
The location of the zoo is beautiful. Splendid views of the city. Organisation could be improved: Shows and keeper talks did not take place at the times indicated and it was difficult to find my way around. Some exhibits need urgent cleaning. Most visitors are families with small kids and they enjoy it. If you are an adult coming from abroad Australia Zoo is the better option. The koala and kangoroo exhibits are more modern there and with more animals on display.
The bird show alone is worth the ticker price

I loved the bird show :) it was worth the money I spent! I don't like zoos in general, but I believe the people working at Taroonga zoo are making their best to ensure animal welfare
Family tour

Syndey zoo is better than Taronga zoo. They dont have much animals these days. And its not big enough for wild animals. I felt sad for caged animals.
Oz zoo
Troy_D, July 2023
Besides it being a wet day, the park was easy to get around and explore all areas. The animals appeared to be well looked after zoo animals which my son enjoyed finding all of them
Kulwant_P, June 2023
Seal show and bird show. Tigers were good to watch. Heaps of closed areas. If winter is an issue for safety of animals then either the zoo should be closed temporarily or reduce the ticket.
Seal Connection.
Bernadette_H, May 2023
I felt I connected with the beautiful seal, such a sweet tender animal that looks into your soul. Would like to see him/her in a much larger pool though.
Good for kids
Alhad_T, May 2023
It would have been good if the sites can inform which all animals are not availabble in the zoo.. hence it was not 100% good
A great experience for kids and adults!
ReeseM_W, Apr 2023
Great zoo visit, loved the koala and chimpanzees exhibits the most! Their recommendation of using the zoo app which made a world of difference in how to organize my zoo day!
Lovely zoo
Donna_H, Mar 2023
Lovely zoo but hard to walk for older people as it is very steep and hilly in parts. Try to visit on a weekday instead of a weekend for a more peaceful time. It was helpful to have a prepaid ticket through Viator to the zoo.
Great without queueing
ZitaPuiKa_L, Mar 2023
Its really convenient to use, simply show your QR code tickets in the main entrance without queueing.
Great zoo with an amazing view of Sydney, Australia
Linda_A, Mar 2023
View from the zoo looking towards Sydney. Unfortunately it poured rain the morning we visited and many of the animals were not on display or sheltered ( certainly curious about the silly humans standing in the pouring rain staring at them! Lol)
Horrible zoo!!!!
Paul_C, Feb 2023
Weak showing for this zoo Only 2 kangaroos were there both laying down like they were dead. No lions No dingos Horrible experience This zoo is a ripoff
Great way to spend a relaxing day!
Michael_L, Feb 2023
The whole place is fantastic. Loved the openness. Wide pathways were great. Wasn't crowded during the day Thursday. Elephant's and Giraffes were my favorite....but the white checked Gibbon was super entertaining!
A great zoo and day out.
Stephen_W, Feb 2023
Thanks to the team at the Koala encounter for fitting us in as we missed our time slot, more on that later. Koala encounter was great with time to be up close and take photos and talk to a keeper. All the animals we saw were well cared for and you can tell that from their appearance and movement. We missed our time slot for the Koalas due to late ferry and bus. It's a shame the zoo don't provide free transport whilst the sky safari is closed. Good views back to the city, and the seal show was fun too. Recommended day out, but plan ahead for transport.
Mostly closed
William_B, Feb 2023
Significant parts of the zoo are closed either due to renovations or COVID. The tram from the ferry terminal was closed. The lion exhibit was closed. The elephant exhibit is being worked. The penguin exhibit was open but there were no penguins in any of the display areas. Most of the food venues were closed.
Don’t miss the zoo
Rita_F, Feb 2023
Oh my gosh, we had a great visit, and the koala bear exhibit and experience was the best. The seal show was fantastic so don’t miss any of the shows we spent five hours and loved every minute.
Great time
June_T, Jan 2023
Great exhibits featuring Kangaroos and Koalas. Bird show was excellent. Ferry ride overhead great views of the front of the Opera House & bridge.
Awesome experience.
Ruth_H, Jan 2023
The employees were very friendly and helpful. We had our luggage with us. They provided storage and assistance getting it to the ferry. Great job.
