Visit: Taronga Zoo, Bradleys Head Road, Mosman, New South Wales 2088 Australia

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.

Don’t miss a ride on the Sky Safari cable car, which whisks you high above the zoo grounds, giving you bird’s-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 it’s 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

We loved the zoo! Once we figured out how to purchase our ferry tickets and where to board, it was smooth sailing. The cable car from the zoo entrance to the top was a great feature that allowed us to take a few good pictures, and the trails and signage at the zoo was were really good. We enjoyed all the exhibits, animals, talks, and shows. The sea lion show was especially fun to watch. We're in our 70's and we had a great time. The photo ops are outstanding.

WE took the ferry from Wharf 2, purchasing a separate ticket...much cheaper that way. you can buy a 2 day pass for the ferry which will take you to the zoo and 2 all the islands if you are going to be there for couple of days It includes the zoo ticket, gondala ride at the zoo, and transportation from circular quay pronounced key to/from for 54. Good deal otherwise indivual round trip ferry ticket is 7.50 zoo ticket 35. WEll with it. FUn relaxing day, enjoying nature walks . BEautiful view of harbor and bridges from gondalo. HIghly Recommend. Easy to navigate from start to finish.

My only suggestion is to get there early and plan on staying all day. If possible take public transport Bus or Ferry as the car park fills quickly. Lots to see and do including lots of walking. Bring water bottles there are free refill stations around the Zoo. Several new food and drink locations not overpriced and the food quality is what you would expect from fast food places. The coffee is medium quality. An enjoyable, tiring day.

Gondola not in operation due to high winds, Savannah section also under refurb. Nevertheless made for a lovely day out with generally well-planned exhibits and animals that generally look comfortable in their homes. The regular ferry from Circular Quay, payable using the Opal card comes often enough.
