  • The view was just the best part of this zoo. We enjoyed the sky lift which was amazing and I guess that's about it. The zoo has not many animals and yes abit over priced too. We got here via Manly fas...  more »
  • World famous zoo. Exotics animals. Triffid guide name. Robert. Our feet gave out but not our sense of wonder. Go love a wallaby. Learn that most. Of these animals are dangerous into the wild,  more »
  • Reptiles and frogs are great, but rainforest birds are poor, monkeys don't have enough space, kangaroos seem to be sad or in a bad shape / mood... Only a few penguins  more »

  • I went for the Vivid light show they had and it was a great time. Easy parking and well priced. I've been several other occasions to see the animals and it was good value for money. The cable car is especially fun and it's easily accessible by the ferry and other public transport.
  • Taronga is a super zoo with the most amazing views and setting. Prices are a bit steep, but the zoo friends annual pass is great value and usable in most AU zoos. The food outlets are a bit blah (loss of star) - need better value and more choices. Get the coffee sorted too please - too expensive for not v good. Conservation efforts are great and the range of Au animals is super. The roar and snore is the best - expensive but so cool. Adults only was great! Vivid in the zoo - also amazing, although the 2017 food options were terrible (take a pic nic).
  • Wonderful zoo. Loved the baby elephant. Great variety of animals. Only negative was they made you pay extra to get close to Koalas. They didn't have any at the 2 free locations. Great view of downtown Sydney.
  • Taronga Zoo is a great place for all ages. There are lots of interactive shows for kids and adults, places to sit and relax, walking tracks and clear signs to all the animals. The views over Sydney Harbour are amazing. They even have a function centre so you can celebrate special occasions with the views as your backdrop.
  • Fantastic Zoo that is always changing, great for kids and even grown ups. The view back to Sydney is spectacular. Vivid at night is also quite special. I recommend the bird show.

Where to stay in Mosman

Staying in Mosman is a good choice for visitors who prefer to base themselves outside of Sydney's busy central district and yet close to all of the city's action and tourist attractions. At first glance, the neighborhood's accommodation options might seem limited, with only a couple of boutique hotels and bed and breakfasts. If you cast your nets more widely, however, you'll find a broad selection of privately owned rental apartments both in the center of the neighborhood and by the coast, in all shapes and sizes. Entire houses available for short-term rental make a great option for large groups.
