Wild Life Sydney Zoo is located in the heart of the city, right next to the Sydney Aquarium. The zoo is noted for its enclosed air-conditioned public areas and a long walkway snaking through 7,000 square m (75,000 sq ft) of enclosures. In the upper levels of the park, you can visit open-air exhibits featuring live plants and full-sized trees. The largest exhibit presents a semi-arid habitat, covered with red sand brought here from central Australia, housing adult red kangaroos. Other exhibits are dedicated to a number of other native animals, such as wombats, wallabies, crocodiles, and snakes. At the koala rooftop, kids can have their photo taken with these cuddly animals.  To visit Wild Life Sydney Zoo and get the most from your holiday in Sydney, create itinerary details personal to you using our Sydney family vacation planner.

  • Only when I arrived? Turning your back on the trees the Koala, sleeping was not the only one. Hug and was expecting to another is not a "so still lots of Japan who I see it... ', is kind of lonely. Although seen animals of Australia in a short period of time.

  • This is not about the Zoo of Sydney but another attraction in Darling Harbour, which can be combined with Sealife and Madame Toussaue. Ticket for $40A made on the Internet and on the long line passing in the wild life. Unfortunately was that nowhere said before the book's an attractions, such as. The largest crocodile Rex and a few other things currently does not. Unfortunately Rex passed away, for which no one can, I but also, only pay I had it anyway. Many enclosures and vivariums were empty or have been rebuilt, still full price. Even with plenty of time and watch, is it out in an hour. Where you received a photo book what is (pictures are taken at the entrance) again $40 cost, man but of course not do buy. Enclosures are quite small and designed the info very short-term knowledge and little details. All very superficial and on Commerce. That's unfortunate, because the animals are really exciting and the one with the wildlife also nature conservation and animal welfare initiatives in Australia supports is in any case a great thing. The pictures with the koalas cost me $20 and as you of course may touch the animals (which I find very good) worth not to invest the money. Was OK but not what I had hoped.

  • This place is great - I can only imagine particularly so for children. My wife and I spent half a day here so happy to answer any questions. My wife really wanted a photo with a real koala and we got ...  read more »
  • Very disappointing! ! Wouldn't waste my money ever again!! Hardly anything to see, possibly one animal. Annoying walking through corridors to get to exhibitions 2more walking than seeing anything. Old and out dated. Money making place with no benefit. False advertising as animals listed weren't evern there. No butterflies in the butterfly room, it was like spot the reptiles, no crocodile in the big tank. Just boring and waste. Very disappointing! !!!!!!
  • Don't waste your $40 going to Sydney wildlife you'll get to see 4 types snakes, couple of reptiles, 1 Tasmanian devil, couple of koalos and wallabies, 1 crocodile sign stating Rex the old massive crocodile passed away 6 months ago. The staff said it's winter hence not much animals to see yet the ticket price is same. The wildlife is worth $20 definitely not $40, and for $40 it's better off going to Taronga Zoo. Good bye Sydney wildlife.
  • A decent zoo in the middle of CBD, especially if you want to see the reptiles, insects (spiders, butterfly's), kangaroos, koalas etc. Though look around for Groupon deals, I wouldn't pay the standard admission (Taronga Zoo would be a much better place to go to for more variety of animals).
  • Great little zoo in Sydney. Tons of things to see in a small place. Great for kids! Do not miss the walk with the kangaroos.
  • This is a good place to visit if you dont have time to visit the main turango zoo. Though felt bad for the animals here as they were just sitting idle and looked weak. Hope they get better treatment soon.
