Taronga Zoo (Australia) Reviews
Newest Review: ... our tour by visiting the Australian animal enclosure. This is a walk through area and contained kangaroos, wallerbies, emus, possums and other indigenous animals.

Last summer I took my children to Australia on a very special holiday. The trip included a few days in Sydney, staying in the rocks area of the city.

I was dropped off in the centre of Sydney and walked through the Botanical Gardens (fantastic) past the Opera House to Circular Quay where I got a ferry across to Taronga. I didn?t realise that you could get a combined ticket for the ferry and the zoo so I paid separately ($25-00 entrance to the zoo) and lost a few dollars. I remembered the Zoo very well from ...

Often refered to as the worlds best zoo. Sydneysiders and millions of tourists constantly visit the magnificent zoo. Situated at Mosman, one of Sydney's most beautiful suburbs, Taronga Zoo occupies over 33 hectares and is a must-see for any visitor. The zoo is home to over 2000 specimens and 400 species. Spiral pathways wind round the various exhibits and down the tree-lined hill to the wharf on Sydney Harbour. The inhabitants at Taronga Zoo have some of the best views in Sydney. If you are lucky you will be blessed with the super sydney sunshine, adding to your delightful day. Taronga is sectioned off according to the ... Read the complete review
