Day at the zoo
Juan_G, Apr 2024
What an awesome day. This is a must do with any trip to Sydney. It’s a short ferry ride from the city. You regret it , if you skip this .
Great zoo
Bill_E, Mar 2024
Great zoo. Limited animals, only aone or a few of each to see like the lions. A lot of steep steps, hard walking.
Fun and memorable

Experience was fun and enjoyable. Allow yourself a few hours at least to enjoy the zoo. Maybe an afternoon or a morning.

Koala bears were the best part. I would suggest to have more water refill stations. There was only two near the market and they were both closed. I am assuming the reason these were closed so you were forced to go buy water in the market. All in all the zoo was a good experience and interesting place to go to. Due to the heat, a lot of animals were not out and visible. Good the tiger, although he was in a enclosed cage.

Scan QR and enter. Ferry over, take bus or cable car to the top. Worth seeing. A smaller zoo along the likes of San Diego.
Great zoo with happy animals
Michael_O, Mar 2024
Easy to get to the zoo just walk up the hill from the ferry to the entrance. Showed them my phone ticket and got in quickly. The animals look Happy and have nice enclosures and you can see them all pretty well. Love the koala and kangaroo section because they are not hidden by cages or fences. In fact, the kangaroos could go up to you if they wanted to. You could be about 5 feet away from the koala bear in a tree!
Excellent Zoo with Great Volunteers.
arctikram, Mar 2024
Excellent experience highlighted by great guidance from Volunteer Graham who made our visit truly special. Would highly recommend! Some of our favorites were the tree kangaroos, the silverback, gorilla, the koalas, and the cassowary! Was amazing and very well organized! We were there several hours and didnt get to see it all!

Good time but the kangaroo experience was not available so sad that we missed them. The other exhibits we nice and the park was clean.
Amazing zoo
Aaron_L, Feb 2024
There’s no need to redeem any ticket. Just proceed to the main entrance and get your QR code to be scanned and you’re set to go! Zoo is big with amazing layouts and glad to know that the animals are well fed and taken care of. You can also multiple amazing views of the city centre across the harbour in diff angles.
A must see

Fun day at the ZOO
Carol_K, Feb 2024
We took the ferry over to the zoo. It took a total of 3 hours to complete our trip. Nice variety of animals. It was a hot day but plenty of shade to combat the heat.

Wonderful Zoo, able to see animals very close up. Also the zoo seems to be interested in conservation and is very informative.

We spent 6 hours in the...
Alex_G, Jan 2024
We spent 6 hours in the zoo and were not able to visit all the sites. The layout of the zoo sites is very well maintained. Small pingiuins, coualas and jiraphas were our favorite.

Easy to get to. Beautiful animals and birds. Took ferry over from city. Beautiful views if the city from the zoo as well.
A guide helps visitors learn about the animals
Marjory_B, Jan 2024
Though we enjoyed visiting the zoo a lot, we realized when we happened to be able to hear a guide talking to a group, we realized that we would have learned so much more and enjoyed it more if we were with a guide. The organization and management of the zoo was efficient allowing for a large number of people coming into the zoo to quickly spread out so it never felt crowded. The zoo was a place where animals could be observed in a natural habitat, which allowed me to feel comfortable in the setting.
Great morning
