Sydney Taronga Zoo General Entry Ticket
Located on shoreline of Sydney Harbour, Sydney Taronga Zoo is home to thousands of fascinating animals, including Australian natives such as the koala, kangaroo and platypus. With your admission ticket, you gain entrance to the zoo along with the Sky Safari cable car, which gives you the chance to look down into the animal enclosures and enjoy sweeping views of Sydney Harbour Bridge and the city skyline. Check the schedule for daily keeper presentations, or book an animal encounter or guided tour (own expense) for a more in-depth experience.
What to Expect
Sydney Taronga Zoo opened in 1916 and has since become a major force for animal care, research and conservation. You can take the ferry from Circular Quay to the zoo, a scenic ride that lasts about 10 minutes and gives you stunning waterside views of the harbor city. Don’t miss a ride on the Sky Safari cable car, which whisks you high above the zoo grounds, giving you a bird’s-eye view of zoo inhabitants like elephants and big apes. It also provides photo ops of Sydney Harbour and the Sydney Opera House.

Your Sydney Taronga Zoo ticket is valid for general admission to the zoo and the Sky Safari, the only cable car in Sydney. Once inside the zoo, proceed around ten themed areas where the animals live in surroundings similar to their natural habitats. Some of the featured themes focus on Wild Australia, the Great Southern Oceans and Wild Asia. During the daily keeper talks, you can witness an in-depth presentations about specific animals such as Tasmanian devils, giraffes, lemurs, little penguins and koalas.

Other optional activities such as animal encounters and guided tours can be booked at your own expense. If you're inspired to try swinging through the trees, Wild Ropes offers a low and high level ropes course for an adrenaline-fueled activity suitable for adults and older kids. You might even spot koalas, kangaroos, wallabies and emus as you make your way through the trees. Education Officers can offer you and your family a learning experience with live animals and plants in their natural environments, and develop an understanding about wildlife of all types.
