  • The zoo itself was personally very fun. First, I booked koala encanters and penguin feedings. (It seems that you can not make a reservation unless you are next to the main entrance before opening) There may be no sense of scale or beauty, but it was structured to feel close to animals and birds. It was good to see meerkats, capybaras, koalas and kangaroos close to me. In addition, there is a net area of about 10m x 10m x 10m with a double door in some places, and you can observe the natural situation of birds and animals. Especially, the wallaby was familiar with people, and it came to about 30 centimeters. After that, birds and peacocks come close to get food both indoors and outdoors. Koala Encanter can not be touched, but I was impressed to be able to take a picture together and observe it nearby. Penguins can also feed the Australian son of Blue Penguin. It was about six people once, so when we participated, the frame was filled immediately after opening. Penguins are worth...

  • Stayed at the New Taronga Retreat in the Zoo. The family had a really great time. It was their second day open and we can recommend it to anyone wanting a unique experience. The treetop rooms are fantastic. The restaurant is to be complimented on providing five star quality meals, with impeccable service. The tours are really informative and the staff are totally committed to their work and it shows in how they deliver the information. We are already planning our return.
  • A magical place! We mostly wanted to see the native Australian animals - this delivered, and more! It's a very expansive zoo, spreading several levels and over a wide area. We were there for about 4hrs and covered maybe half. We did manage to see the Australian animals: koalas, kangaroos, birds, the platypus, etc., as well as others like elephants, red pandas, gorillas. Definitely recommend that you go during one of the feeding/keeper talks since they are very educational. Entrance fee is a little steep (A$50) but worth it. Lots of birds just flying around, some of the animals as well. Very little fences for the non-dangerous animals, really, which makes the experience somewhat better - you can't really touch the animals but it feels open. We got here via the ferry from Circular Quay. Buy your ticket before getting on the ferry. That ticket will allow you to take the cable car up the hill. Otherwise, you'll have to walk to the main entrance. Also, amazing views towards downtown, the Opera House, and the Harbor Bridge. Lives up to the name 😀
