The wild side of Sydney! Just a quick 12 minute ferry ride from downtown to across the harbour takes you to an animal paradise. A visit to the Taronga Zoo Sydney promises a day filled with over 4,000 animals from over 350 species, including Australia’s finest from the animal kingdom – koalas, kangaroos, platypus, echidna, wombats, Tasmanian Devils – and other animals from around the world like red pandas, Komodo Dragons, gorillas, elephants, and giraffes (wow, look at the gorgeous view that they have!). Be sure to take advantage of animal encounters where you can get some up-close, one-on-one time and a picture with a koala (yes, please!), giraffe, penguin, or owl and chat with their handlers. Part of the zoo’s mission is to create a positive connection between zoo-goers and the animals, and with the over 20 informative zoo keeper talks and interesting shows offered throughout the day, this mission is ensured by expanding your knowledge in addition to entertaining you.
