"Taronga Park" Mosman by cjg1
Mosman Travel Guide: 22 reviews and 60 photos
I have decided to move my zoo pics over here to keep the Sydney page less cluttered and also because of the rule limiting the number of travelogues per page.
I have been here three times now. June 2004, March 2006 and October 2007. I must say the first time was the best and the second resoundingly the worse. The second visit there was nearly half the animals not available. Luckily we paid nothing for that visit so it wasnt so bad. My third trip to Taronga was the best ever. It was Liz's bithday and we had perfect weather for exploring the zoo.
During ou Koala experience at Taronga one of the Koalas wanted a closer encounter with Liz. To put it mildly it wanted climb onto her head and eat her hair. Thankfully trainer moved our koala friend before he decided to make Liz into breakfast. They said it was probably her shampoo that attracted the bear. Later on we dicovered that Liz's shampoo contained Australian Aloe(maybe that was the trigger).
I was happy to have visited Taronga with Liz on her birthday. She was so looking forward to seeing the Koalas. She calls them Fuzz Balls affectionately.
During our visit to Taronga we encounted many animals but one of our favorite were the Meerkats. They were so funny scurrying around their habitat, fighting, climbing and posturing for us silly humans.
