This zoo is just one of those places you have to visit if only for the spectacular views of Sydney. It has all the animals from Australia and the other animals from around the world you'd expect at any zoo. Although having a wide selection of exhibits the location and cable car rides are by far the best aspects of taronga zoo.

We took a ferry to the Zoo – with great views of the bay. Ferries are very much in use as public transportation. After that, we took a cable car to the top. We got to see a lot of unusual animals: wombat sleeping on his back (not a pretty sight), echidna, kangaroos, nocturnal animals, platypus, flying fox, gorillas eating their lunch, elephants with city backgrounds behind them, red panda, parrots sitting on the trees… You can take a picture holding koala, or watch a bird show… There is a lot to do and see there.

I traveled quite a lot in my life till now and this Zoo is the best Zoo in the world for me! I initially thought of not going since it was just a Zoo. But its one of the best places in Sydney! Highly recommend especially if you are traveling with kids.

Best zoo I've ever visited, hands down! Where else can you take a ferry and then a gondola to get to a zoo? There are so many beautiful animals, including many Australian favorites (kangaroos, wallabies, koalas, emus, wombats, etc). The kangaroo habitat was amazing! They were literally just running around freely, so we got a lot of close-up photos! You can also pay a fee to have your photo taken with a koala up-close. It is illegal in NSW to hold or touch koalas, though, so unfortunately you can't pet them. Great zoo overall!!

A visit to the Sydney Taronga Zoo is a fun family day out. You first take a ferry across the harbour and then you take a cable car up to the top of the zoo and then walk and wind your way back down through the zoo.

I have been visiting the Zoo since 1950's and the changes are unbelievable ... it was the place I would take Peta too when we had our weekends out when she was a baby. She had a blow up giraffe called gerry and do you think she would leave the giraffe enclosure ... every time i would turn the pram she would scream ... dang kid she is almost 40 and still the same.

If you are an animal lover, the Sydney zoo is definitely worth seeing. It sits on the harbor, with beautiful views of the city and the water. Australia has a lot of interesting and unique wildlife, and it is all on display here - koalas, crocodiles and the bizarre platypus.
