Know More about this tour

Your Sydney Taronga zoo entry ticket provides general admission to the zoo and includes the Sky Safari cable car. Any guided tours, animal encounters and other optional activities inside the zoo are at your own expense.

After entering the zoo, make your way around its 10 themed areas including Wild Australia, Wild Asia and the Great Southern Oceans where you can see animals living in unique environments that imitate their natural habitats. Have your camera ready at all times, as views of Sydney Harbour and Harbour Bridge abound.

Dont miss a ride on the Sky Safari cable car, which whisks you high above the zoo grounds, giving you birds-eye views of zoo inhabitants like elephants. It also provides photo ops of Sydney harbour, Harbour Bridge and the Opera House.

If you'd like a more up close and personal experience, you can pay for optional animal encounters with wildlife like koalas, giraffes and reptiles. Meet these fascinating creatures, and take home a souvenir photograph.

Education Officers can offer you and your family a wildly different learning experience, allowing you to go face to face with live animals. Learn about plants and animals in their natural environments, and develop an understanding and positive attitude about wildlife of all types. This experience gives visitors both young and old the skills and enthusiasm to actively participate in the care and conservation of flora and fauna in their own communities.

Sydney Taronga zoo opened on October 7, 1916. Since then, the zoo has conducted 33 conservation breeding programs, 11 recovery programs, 10 in situ conservation partnerships and is involved in a further 10 major research programs for conservation. The zoo is a not-for-profit organization and maintains a proud international reputation for animal care and conservation.

How to get to the zoo:
The easiest way to get to the zoo from Central Sydney is by ferry. Not only convenient but its also a great way to see spectacular Sydney harbour. Ferries depart from Wharf 4 at Circular quay every 30 minutes. When you arrive at Taronga Wharf, take the Sky Safari gondola to the top entrance of the zoo. Alternatively, you can take the zoo bus service that meets every ferry.

Food options:

  • Taronga Food Market Located near the elephant enclosure with indoor and outdoor seating; offers six different food and beverage outlets
  • The View Cafe-style menu featuring Mediterranean plates, salads, hot food and cakes
  • The Fish Stop Offers salt-and-pepper squid, calamari, garlic prawns and fish and chips
  • Forage and Graze Located inside the main entrance and offers a range of sandwiches, wraps, pastries, coffee and drinks
  • Taronga zoo also has many picnic areas, so feel free to bring a picnic basket and enjoy lunch with views of Sydney harbour

    A good, but perhaps unremarkable, zoo. The surrounding harbour, although pleasant enough, is a recurring feature of Sydney and thus may fail to captivate attention after a while. A couple of exhibits, such as the tigers, feel slightly contrived; the anticipation sometimes culminates in a mild sense of disappointment as the promise of something unique is not quite realised. Most of the exhibits and pathways are professional but not especially majestic, creative, or wondrous--even in comparison to some other Australian zoos.

    The zoo is overrated. Although it is a short 15min ferry from city, it was not worth it. The tickets included a cable car ride up but the cable car was down. It seems that it has been down for awhile. Many of us visitors came with young children and prams. We had to walk up slope to enter the zoo instead as the frequency of the shuttle bus is low. They should have increased the frequency of the bus knowing that the cable rides are not working. There was not much to see at the zoo. The slopes are not very pram friendly and we had a lot of difficulty trying to find our way around.

    Tried to visit the zoo on Wednesday 30th December. Website was down so couldn’t book tickets online before leaving circular quays. Got to Taronga Zoo to find the Cable cars weren’t in use because they were short staffed so headed for the bus that was waiting. Unfortunately that bus was full so we were told to just hop on the next waiting bus. We were greeted by an obviously irritated bus driver who told us the bus wouldn’t be going anywhere for 30 minutes as the scheduled bus hadn’t turned up. After sitting on the bus below the Zoo for 30 minutes we decided not to visit that day as our first impressions were not good so carried on to Balmoral beach for a lovely day there instead.

    Beautiful setting but so many areas closed off and looks like the whole place needs some TLC The website should tell customers that a fair few areas are closed off to the public and ticket prices should be adjusted. Had been before and absolutely loved it so may just be comparing to that but definitely a disappointment. Would recommend the cable car one way or both from/to ferry or the bus as long walk up. Food/shops decent

    Very dissapointing visit today, large areas closed off such as lions, duck billed platypus due to construction. Hardly any animals actually on display and no mention of restrictions on entry still charging full price. The highlight of the visit was the cable car back to the ferry. Not impressed

    This was my second time visiting Taronga Zoo and got a chance to bring my whole family. One of the most beautiful Zoo we have ever visited.

    Would have rated it 5 star other than an extremely rude staff at the cable car who soured our visit at the end. Great zoo with a stroller accessible and convenient layout. Made it easy for us to maneuver with 2 young kids in tow! Friendly staff and knowledgeable keepers with ample shows/keeper talks which made the visit interesting for kids and adults alike. Unfortunately we were too early for the cable car ride up and took a bus instead. Staff suggested that we take the cable car round trip in the later part of our trip when it was operational. When leaving the zoo, we decided to take the round trip as suggested and as our toddler loved cable cars. When we reached the top of the cable car ride, an extremely rude staff yanked at our stroller and told us to alight at the top. He said it was up to him to decide who could take the round trip and we need to seek his permission. Totally unprofessional and uncalled for, especially in front of our two kids.

    One of the worst zoos I’ve visited in the world. Most sections are closed. Very few animals, no marine life. Entry ticket is a rip off.

    A great day out to see all the different animals in a well run zoo Facilities first class and also a restaurant to rest
