Taronga Zoo, Sydney: 96 reviews and 199 photos

  Feed the giraffes at Taronga Zoo
by AmazingAdventures

I admit I am not a zoo expert, but this seems like a pretty good one to me. Not only does it have a huge variety of animals, it has one of the best views of Sydney.

Take a friend or take the family, this is a nice way to spend a day in Sydney for tourists and locals alike.

Kangaroos, wallabies, koalas, native birds, assorted marsupials, reptiles, crocs are all here as well as lions, tigers and bears! You'll also see rhinos. apes, monkeys, elephants and for a few $ you can feed the giraffes and get a photo with them too!

There is no shortage of options for lunch or a snack, if you plan ahead you can bring a lunch with you and enjoy the many areas to have a bite to eat. There's also at least one big gift shop with a big variety of goodies or souvenirs.

For the best value, make a whole day of it!

Directions: Take the ferry from Circular Quay across Sydney Harbour, enjoy the view of the Opera House from the ferry. In just less than 15 minutes, you'll be at the Taronga Zoo jetty. You can catch the SKY SAFARI up to the zoo entrance, what a view!
