Taronga Zoo is one of Sydney’s most popular attractions. It is known as the zoo with a view and is one of the world’s more enjoyable zoos, partly because of its lovely harbourside setting. The zoo has the usual collection of animals from around the globe and a couple of good picnic and barbecue areas.

    쇼를 보기 위해서는 쇼시작 30분 이전에 도착하여 그늘에 자리를 잡길 권함. 그늘 자리를 얻지 못하면 화상 주의.

    Download the phone app, which can pinpoint your location on their park map, which makes navigating this huge and hilly site so much easier.

    Except for chickens all the animals are motionless and timid:((

    The zoo is ok. The views of CBD and circular quay are better. However, the chicken burrito at the food market is horrible. It’s like chipotle’s ugly cousin with an IQ of 20...inedible congealed mess!

    The only good things were the amazing harbour and city views and the friendly staff.

    One of the best zoos I have been to. Take in the animals and sweeping views. Get there early and sign up for one of their experiences.

    Very large zoo with a good range of shows, talks and photo opportunities. Decent food court and plenty of places to stop and rest. Great views of Sydney Harbour too.

    Waste of money! You have to pay extra to see the koalas! When I visited, some of the enclosures were shut so definitely a waste of money. Wouldn’t recommend.

    Animals are lovely and there are lots of shows to entertain you, but the view of Sydney Harbour from here is simply breathtaking!

    The free flight bird show is a must-see at the zoo - It happens twice a day. Also has great views back across Sydney Harbour.

    Zoológico muito bem cuidado e com ótimas atrações! Da pra ver os cangurus de tão perto que quase da pra passar a mão! Não se esqueça do wombat! Não Sem contar a maravilhosa vista do opera house!

    코알라는 티켓을 구입하면 우리 안에 들어가 조금 더 가까이서 사진을 찍을 수 있습니다. 호랑이 네 마리 꼭 보세요.

    If you enter from up top then do a loop of the sky safari before entering the zoo
