About
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.

Take a ferry trip to the Zoo
Jun. 2021
Taronga Zoo is easy to get to -- just take the ferry from Circular Quay, across Sydney Harbour. The Zoo has long been regarded as Australia's best zoo. Locals like the African savannah animals and other exotic species, but most visitors like to see the koalas, kangaroos and other Australian indigenous animals. Bythe way, take your time, there's lots to see.

Amazing Experience! Took a ferry ride to the Island and then took an Air Gondola up to the front gate, it was so cool to see the zoo from above. They have an amazing array of animals. Such a cool experience!

Great experience
Jul. 2021 • Family
Lots of animals: giraffes, elephant, snakes, crocodiles, bird show, and great view from the harbour, just getting there by public transport from the cbd is a fun experience.
