Taking a ferry directly from Circular Quay to Taronga Zoo, located in the suburb of Mosman, is the first unexpected joy of visiting the animal park. Once there, the leisurely trails and opportunity to see some of Australia's distinct wildlife become apparent, as does the striking view of the Harbour Bridge from the seating at the aerial bird show. Advance booking can give you the chance to see koalas up close, or stay overnight and 'camp' in the zoo.

This is a beautiful zoo, laid out on a hillside overlooking Sydney Harbor and its Opera House. Although the collection rivals many other zoos its collection of Australian marsupials which mostly are out at night is stunning and they have reversed night and day in...More

Most zoos are just collections of animals, and to be fair, Taronga is at its heart just that - a collection of animals. Ultimately it does not compete with some others that have vast stretches of land where the animals can roam either. However, where...More

With a variety of outdoor attractions, the
sophisticated harbour suburb of Mosman has something
for everyone. Shoppers can stroll Military Road for
its unique offering of antiques, designer labels, and
hip restaurants and cafes. Nature lovers can take in
spectacular bushwalks like the Taronga to Balmoral
walk, while families can enjoy snorkeling in the
sheltered beaches of Balmoral Beach or scuba diving at

There is a page on their web site that lists closures. Short term (which actually ended last week), the seal pond was closed. Since the page hasn't been updated, it may still be closed. The Koala Walkabout is/was temporarily... More
