Wild Life Sydney Zoo, Sydney

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 travel itinerary planner .

    Better access to Sydney Zoo not to go on the ferry. Madame Tussauds and Aquarium, next to each other. Multiple facilities combined ticket you buy cheap, you get. Many koalas on various animals of Australia can see up close. Image of sleeping Koala is moving briskly and was eating Eucalyptus leaves. On my way home, could you take a photo in next to the koala and pay $ 20 extra to other out of favorites, choose their own piece to take back. Or you'll be hungry when my husband only paid the $ 20 is too near into me and took the photo with my cell phone! I was very happy. To take pictures of keepers because staff tell us about the Koala variety. Are other animals who were very interested in show, good time. From children to adults is recommended.

    This zoo contains the wildlife of Australia. The area where we could walk among kangaroos and wallabys was fantastic, and being close to the koalas was great. The zoo is built on different levels, so many of the animals could be viewed from above, below and/or at their level. We were delighted to see the huge saltwater crocodile. All of the exhibits feature a map of Australia with the area of the animal's origin highlighted. This is a great little gem in Sydney's Darling Harbour. Allow about 2 - 3 hours to see everything.

    The park was super clean and well taken care of. They have a ton of Australian animals and every exhibit you are up close to the animals. I was extremely surprised at how close you get to the Tasmanian Devils and then walking through the kangaroo and koala areas. Staff was fantastic and the two girls who were all over the zoo were extremely knowledgeable about EVERY animal! Definitely recommend taking the time to talk to the staff, they are superb!

    A great place, especially for young children. My 5 year old loved it! The staff is friendly and courteous. Thank you!

    The zoo is very accessible, being in the CBD area. But there's only so much one can do by housing animals in a building. Go there if you are really really keen on seeing a sample of Australian wildlife in confined spaces.

    It wasn't the best. Not a lot of variety. A lot of animals weren't even visible. And I don't think I saw a single snake moving. Not a bad place to chill out though. Kangaroos and Koalas were pretty cute

Where to stay in Sydney

Sydney offers visitors hundreds of lodging options in its central area, with choices suitable for most budgets. As expected in a major tourist destination, harbor views play a major role in determining room prices. Expect to pay more for ocean-view suites, especially if you visit at the peak of the tourist season or around big city events. If you don't need to stay in the center of Sydney, consider budget-friendly hotels near the airport, or look for smaller roadside motels in the city's South West neighborhood.
