Your Experience

Escape into an Intimate Day at the Zoo

This VIP guided tour through Sydney’s Taronga Zoo will give you a chance to encounter Australia’s unique wildlife at close range. This 100-year-old zoo has over 4000 animals of 350 different species, spread out over 69 acres and divided into eight geographic regions, many of whom you can meet and spend time with.

After you meet your guide, you will be taken around the zoo in a small group of 6 or less for an intimate and insightful experience. Snap pictures with the kangaroos, wallabies, birds, wombats, echidnas, and reptiles that dwell in the zoo’s diverse habitats. Meet some of the (in)famous and quirky residents of the zoo, such as Luk Chai, the first ever elephant calf born in Australia, and the recent trio of Sumatran tiger cubs who are all set to make their first public appearances.

Learn more about these fascinating creatures from your expert zookeeper guide, who will take you behind-the-scenes and grant you insight into their living conditions, behavior, and ontologies - a great introduction to the Taronga Zoo and Australian fauna. Spend the entire day getting to know the animals and their many quirks, as you can explore the zoo on your own before and after the tour. To cap off the tour with a most memorable experience, head to the Safari Sky cable ride and take in the gorgeous views of the Sydney Harbour from your aerial vantage point. For the many animal lovers among us, this is a once in a lifetime opportunity you cannot afford to miss!
