- Type: Zoos/Aquariums
NileGuide Expert Says:
The Taronga Zoo is excellent. DO IT! (And they're kind to their animals too).
NileGuide Expert tip:
Come early, particularly in Summer, if you want to get close to the animals at all. And make sure you see the gorillas!
- Catching the ferry over from Circular Quay for a day at the Zoo is one of the delights of living in Sydney. For surely there is no urban zoo with quite as spectacular a setting as this one, sited on a headland that juts out into the harbor. Catching that ferry can be one of the delights of visiting Sydney, too. For a starter, the collection of Australian animals here is great: all the critters you'd expect - kangaroos and koalas and so forth. And that's just to start, because the zoo also homes all the excellent international beasts a soul could hope for : the elephants and the zebras and the lions and the hippos and turtles and snakes and the weird legless lizards and lemurs and gorillas (they're SO big)...
It's simply a splendid place to bring kids. Or adults.
