    If you wanna enjoy watching happy wild animals, you should definitely go there! Animals look healthy and happy. You can enjoy Australian wild species in its full glory

    A very huge zoo! But we missed the chance to take picture with the koala. They have their schedule for every activities such as the seal show, koala show and stuff. Do ask for their schedule

    Great zoo! Amazing view of the city. Your kids will love it even yourself will enjoy it. Take the ferry ride from circular quay and buy the combo pass. It's including the sky train which is amazeballs

    Buy tickets before getting on the ferry and after exiting walk to the side enterance rather then taking the cable cabin as its faster. Dont miss the Giraffes with a nice view of Sydney!

    The best bits are the amazing city views and the birds show. For the rest, it's a "small" zoo for a big city

    Huge zoo, great structure and thousands of animals. Try the Koala encounter ($19 up to 4p), and If you are lucky enough, he will be awake and nice to you!

    An unreal zoo, with a big selection of Australian only animals like kangaroos, wombats, koala beers, and more. Also elephants, giraffes, crocs...

    Very large zoo with a good range of shows, talks and photo opportunities. Decent food court and plenty of places to stop and rest. Great views of Sydney Harbour too.

    The Seal Show is good. In the Seal Show & the Bird Show, the best part is the social message they give! Expected few more few more kangaroos, wallabies & koalas to be in the zoo.

    Almost the most interesting zoo I've been+ extraordinary scenery, go there in the morning, during midday can be crowded and hard to catch a boat back.

    Start at the top, work your way down, then take the gondola back up at the end of your day. Food allowed, so bring your own picnic because options are slim.

    One of the best zoos I have been to. Take in the animals and sweeping views. Get there early and sign up for one of their experiences.

    For a better experience, plan ahead by referring to the schedules from their website or app. Also for parents with small children, a pram is a must!

    I would say the best part of going to this zoo is because of the great view you have when you get there. 😍🏙

    Seal Show is a MUST! Make sure you get there at least half an hour before hand to get a good spot in the queue/seat. 1pm seems to be the better time to go.

    Words can not describe the beauty of this place. You can easily spend a whole day exploring the zoo. Giraffes and the seal at Zoo's store are my favorites.

    A zoo in Australia is a necessary experience. If you're limited in time/travel this is a solid option. There are more interactive and 'authentic' zoos outside of the city.

    Download the phone app, which can pinpoint your location on their park map, which makes navigating this huge and hilly site so much easier.

    The free flight bird show is a must-see at the zoo - It happens twice a day. Also has great views back across Sydney Harbour.

    One of the most famous attractions here are the Gorilla Forest, and Luk Chai,a cute baby elephant born in 2009. You can also stay overnight at the safari tents of Roar and Snore.

    Animals are lovely and there are lots of shows to entertain you, but the view of Sydney Harbour from here is simply breathtaking!

    You can easily spend the entire day here. A map is critical, it will give you a route to see the entire park.

    If you come to the Zoo more than once a year, join Zoofriends for free entry all year. It's a great deal & it takes all the pressure out of visiting, knowing you can return any time.

    The spider show at 3pm is extremely entertaining. The guy who presents it does it like a theatrical monologue. It's brilliant
