We want to get up close and personal with koalas and kangaroos (and all other Aussie animal life). The zoo offers a special VIP tour called "Taronga's Wild Australia Experience, which allows for a small, personalized group escorted by a keeper to "venture into the wilderness of the Australian bush" with "excellent photo ops with koalas, kangaroos and echidna." It also includes viewing the underground burrow of the "Bare-nosed or Common Wombat . . . Behind the scenes in the Australian Nightlife house and enjoy encounters with nocturnal creatures . . ." It sounds like we get up close and personal with the animals, which is what we are looking to find.
Am I correct about this? Has anyone done this particular exclusive tour? How does it compare to the experience at Sydney Wildlife World? I've read that the view of the harbor from the zoo is alone worth the trip to the Taronga Zoo. Given all of this info, what do you recommend we do?
One more thing -- we are two adults, no kids with us, if that makes a difference in your response.
