3.4
#5 of 19 in Zoos & Aquariums in New South Wales
WILD LIFE Sydney Zoo is located in the heart of the city, right next to the Sydney Aquarium. The zoo is noted for its enclosed air-conditioned public areas and a long walkway snaking through 7,000 square m (75,000 sq ft) of enclosures. In the upper levels of the park, you can visit open-air exhibits featuring live plants and full-sized trees. The largest exhibit presents a semi-arid habitat, covered with red sand brought here from central Australia, housing adult red kangaroos. Other exhibits are dedicated to a number of other native animals, such as wombats, wallabies, crocodiles, and snakes. At the koala rooftop, kids can have their photo taken with these cuddly animals.  To visit WILD LIFE Sydney Zoo and get the most from your holiday in Sydney, create itinerary details personal to you using our Sydney travel itinerary planner.

  • There variant types of animals and birds at this place, yet I'd rather visit a zoo to see animals. Though the place is aimed to educate children and it does, it doesn't go in depth and display enough as a zoo would. Yet the idea of indoor place to see animals is a good one in the summer. We enjoyed the Kangaroo and Penguins the most. They take photos of people at entrance and then display them at the exit, offered for sale at about 35aud including a soft copy. There is a gift shop at exit and a nearby cafeteria
  • We held a work function here after hours. Great place to have it. Awesome walk through. Catered well and definitely provides something to do and appreciate. Good for international visitors. Get close to Koalas and handle the wild life safely.
