Visiting the Taronga Zoo is certainly a must for families travelling to the city. The 52-acre zoo officially opened in 1916 and is now home to more than 2600 animals of 340 species. The Taronga Zoo ferry service is the preferred mode of travel for many tourists to get to and from the Zoo, as they pick up and drop off guests close to the best Sydney hotels.
One of the most popular attractions for families visiting the zoo is the “Taronga’s Wild Australia Experience”. These tours start daily at 10am and 2pm and are fully escorted by a keeper. Guests can take photos with koalas, hand-feed kangaroos and wallabies, go into the Australian Nightlife houses and experience an encounter with nocturnal creatures. They can also hold hand-raised native animals and take a ride on the Sky Safari cable car to discover first-hand why Taronga is known as “The Zoo with a view.”
