What a lovely zoo, after you manage to actually get in the place. We came by ferry with a stroller and there is not an accessible ramp to the gondola from the ferry area. You have to walk all the way to the entrance, wait in line to have your prepaid ticket checked, and then walk an inclined walkway back to the gondola entrance. For a simple Monday morning, this process took 45 minutes. The gondola was stroller friendly and both kids loved the view! Once we were off the gondola, we saw a sign advertising the owl experience in front of the gift shop. We popped in to see about tickets. They told us the price, but that it was all the way back on the other end of the zoo and that they don't actually sell tickets in there. You have to go to another building. Once you leave the store, you pass through another ticket/stamp checking area. Once we were in the zoo, we had a great time. Accessibility to some of the animals meant we needed to take large detours, but it was otherwise smooth going. Loved seeing the penguin feeding and the seals practicing!

Take the ferry to the zoo and get on the bus that takes you to the zoo entrance. Get your tickets, have a coffee at the cafe or a snack if you are hungry. Make sure you have ample time if you are planning to see all the animals. Walk around the zoo and enjoy. Lots of animals. Some I never saw before and some you could sit there for quite sometime and enjoy their playfulness. Start at the top and end up at the souvenir shop from where you can head back to the ferry. Staff are very friendly and helpful. Water filling stations are available if you do not want to buy bottled water.

I enjoyed the zoo. Easy access by ferry, it's better to buy a zoo ticket at Circular Quay Wharf 4 before you get on the ferry. That way you can get straight on the cable car near the ferry port when you arrive, rather than having to walk up to the ticket booth and back again at the zoo. Some exhibits closed for upgrades when I went, which is good as it means improvements and I'll definitely be back when they have everything open again. Excellent views of the city from within the zoo.

Wonderful zoo with a great view of the Sydney skyline! A must see when visiting Sydney. Even though I visited on a rainy day, most of the animals were out and about and able to be seen. Great selection of animals, especially reptiles and birds. Be sure to pop in to ALL of the aviary walks, as the birds are quite friendly and will let you get close for a photo. The ‘Roos are friendly and allow you to get close too. The only downside is that there is an additional charge to see the koalas, which is completely ridiculous. Otherwise a very lovely zoo.


Absolutely amazing zoo, best I've been to. Beautiful surroundings and good lay out. Spent about 3 and a half hours there, great interactive zoo. The seal show was brilliant, only thing that I was disappointed with is that I didn't realise you had to book in for the koala encounter. Staff very friendly. Great view from the cable car. Also I got in for just a dollar for my birthday!
