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.

The Taronga Zoo really worth a visit. Breathtaking view of Sydney Bay from the park. Very interesting animals at Australian sector. But the restaurants close very early. You make sure you have lunch before 3:00 pm!

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

You can interact and even feed the Koalas at Wild Life Sydney for an additional price, I think it's around $20-50. It's at Darling Harbour so it's very accessible from CBD.
