Full description
Go on an animal adventure in the heart of Sydney and walk through diverse terrains to meet unique Australian wildlife. Journey around the vast nation without leaving the city at WILD LIFE Sydney.

Enjoy interactive displays, inspiring and entertaining keeper talks, and enhanced walk-through habitats with kangaroos. Located in the heart of Sydney at Aquarium Wharf in Darling Harbour, it is a fantastic world inside. A world where beautiful butterflies and snakes lurk in the foliage, and turtles and crocodiles glide through the water.

You will see the jagged rocks of Wallaby Cliffs to spot yellow-footed rock-wallaby, the toughest and most adapted animal in Australia, and seek out hairy-nosed wombats that munch the grass and shelter down deep burrows.

Travel through a recreation of the Daintree Rainforest and Kakadu Gorge. Marvel at the endless variety of the Northern Territory’s Top End landscape. And look down deep gorges, see grassland, experience floodplains, and visit the estuary flats.

  • 9 authentic Aussie-themed habitat zones to walk through

The zoo is easy to reach by bus Sydney Tour (stop 19 red route or stop 16 and walk over the bridge). There is a wide variety of species in the zoo such as wombas, kangaroos, crocodiles and especially koalas. Confusing is the shared ticket office with Sea life and Madamme T. (for exchanging the vouchers for the admission ticket) and the shared entrance with Madame T. please keep left, inside the building the entrance then separates (Madame T. then turns right from).

Great place for younger children.

A little on the pricey side for an adult, but a great day out for young children. 1yr old to 7. Not too much to see but enough for the young ones. Very tiny cafe on site, with nice seating looking at the koalas. Overall a great day out. As long as money goes back to the animals for their upkeep.

Great place to see native animals.

We had planned to go to the Toronga Zoo but decided on this instead as we wanted one last chance to see native animals, not just animals you can see at a zoo anywhere. We are so glad we did. We got to see the koalas being fed and the two new joeys who had just arrived the previous week after their mother had been hit and killed. Saw the first pademelon of our trip. Echidnas and wombats. Everything we wanted to see. Very well laid out.
