While you might think that a zoo is just a zoo, this zoo in New South Wales is much more than that.
It’s not just about animal encounters and learning about the native wildlife, but a place to capture a beautiful view of the magnificent Sydney Harbour.
Each animal enclosure has facts on display giving you the opportunity to learn more about these wonderful creatures who are so important to our ecosystem.
Kalyra was enthralled with the entertaining seals, which I found really educational at the same time, and appreciated their strong conservation message.
The great thing about our Aussie Animals is that for many of them it is perfectly safe for you to wander around the enclosure with them, give them a pet and have your photo with them.
Taronga Zoo has many conservation and animal research programs in place, as well as daily keeper talks that educate and inspire visitors about the conservation efforts.
