  really up close and personal with a Koloa Bear

Ok, this might sound very obsured....but if have never seen a Koala bear up front and personal this is the place to see it......serveral tour companies offer various trips from the Rocks area to several zoo's around Sydney. Don't pass up the chance to pet a Koala bear or the Kangaroos !!!!! A Must do even if you not a child, it will certainly bring back fond memories of your youth !!!!! We had a complete BLAST and was one of our higlights of our entire trip. I'm sure the other tourist on our ferry were stunned to see a group of mid 20 year old's acting like 10 year old's and to our credit even the girls in our group acted the same way !!!! The price of the ferry ride and admission to the zoo was a mear $20 which was a great price.......DO PAST UP THE CHANCE......HIGHLY RECOMMENDED !!!!!!

UPDATE: May 2008

Price now is $39 AU to get in !!!!! up from $20 AU 4 years ago !!!! almost double !!!! and the picture with the Kola is now $14.99 AU when before it was a $3 AU donation !!!!!

Address: Circa Circular Quay
Directions: Take the ferry from Circular Quay to the entrance of Taronga Zoo across the harbour
