Taronga Zoo is the nation`s leading zoological garden featuring Australia`s finest collection of native animals and a diverse collection of exotic species and has its own jetty enabling you to step off the boat and walk directly into the zoo. The Zoo is situated on elevated land along the waterfront in one of the most beautiful vantage points on Sydney Harbour overlooking Sydney Cove, the Harbour Bridge and the Opera House.

There are many different paths to take here and if you start from the top and walk to the bottom you can take the Zoo Sky Safari chair lift which will quickly take you to the top again so you can begin your downhill trek along a different path. The Animal Encounters experience allows you, with the assistance of the rangers, to enter the enclosures of some of the animals on display and have your picture taken by a professional.

One of the most popular attractions here is the new Great Southern Oceans exhibit which covers 1.2 hectares and features Australian Sea Lions, Australian Fur Seals, New Zealand Fur Seals, Californian Sea Lions, Leopard Seals, Penguins and Pelicans.
