Stroll Through the Lush Taronga Zoo

These entry tickets to Sydney’s Taronga Zoo will give you a chance to meet Australia’s unique wildlife up close. This 100-year-old zoo has over 4000 animals of 350 different species, spread out over 69 acres and divided into eight geographic regions, many of whom you can visit and spend time with.

You can avoid the traffic on Sydney’s streets and take a ferry to the zoo from one of 3 piers. This will save you a significant amount of time that you can now spend at the zoo, as well as give you a different perspective on the picturesque zoo from the water.

After you redeem your tickets at the entry gate, you can wander through the zoo and explore its many attractions. Snap pictures with the kangaroos, wallabies, birds, wombats, echidnas, and reptiles that dwell in the zoo’s diverse habitats. Meet some of the (in)famous and quirky residents of the zoo, such as Luk Chai, the first ever elephant calf born in Australia, and the recent trio of Sumatran tiger cubs who are all set to make their first public appearances.

Spend the entire day getting to know the animals and their lives, with live shows and enclosure visits to boot. Finally, to end on a high note, head to the Safari Sky cable ride and admire the stunning views of the shorelines of Sydney Harbour from your aerial vantage point. A real treat for animal lovers, this is an experience you cannot afford to miss!
