Enjoy an insider’s view of Taronga Zoo, a top attraction located on scenic Sydney Harbour. A zoo keeper gives you exclusive behind-the-scenes access to the animals and other amazing experiences that you won't get with regular admission. This small-group tour has a limit of eight participants, ensuring that you receive a personalized 2-hour experience with ample time to mingle with the kangaroos, take photos with koalas and wombats, and have close encounters with a variety of other Australian wildlife. 
What to Expect
After making your way across Sydney Harbour, you have two transport options to arrive at the main entrance of the zoo at the top of the hill. Either hop on the complimentary shuttle bus or gondola. The gondola glides over the animal enclosures, providing a preview of the orangutans, Asian elephants and other critters from above. When you arrive at the entrance, meet your zoo keeper guide and begin your Wild Australia tour.

During your tour, you get to meet a number of animals and take a peek into the inner workings of the zoo. Stop at a zoo kitchen and learn how the staff prepares meals for the critters’ various diets. Follow your guide into the restricted area at the Australian Nightlife exhibit to observe nocturnal creatures that are difficult to spot in the wild. Explore the world of kangaroos, wallabies and emus; pose for photos with koalas inside their enclosure; and learn about wildlife habitat and conservation projects from your expert guide. Discover the iconic creatures of the Australia, including echidnas, platypus, wombats and bilbies as you explore the zoo on this fascinating tour.

After your tour, enjoy complimentary light refreshments at the zoo’s Harbourview Cafe, which boasts spectacular views over Sydney Harbour Bridge and beyond. You’ll also receive a souvenir gift and have the rest of the day to explore Taronga Zoo at your leisure.

Absolutely wonderful. Our Zoo Guide did an amazing job. She was so knowledgeable about the animals. We got to be up close, feed, and touch some of the animals. We also got to see the behind the scenes working areas. Highly recommend for all ages!
