    Quality zoo - it is quite hilly so be prepared to walk. Plenty of animals

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

    The only good things were the amazing harbour and city views and the friendly staff.

    The best part of the bird show is when they sacrafice a small child to an owl

    This zoo is in such a prime position. Not only can you see the animals but you can also enjoy the views of the harbour.

    Roar 'N Snore!Probably the best way to spend an evening in Sydney, glamping on the harbour, drinking wine, watching the sunset, night walk of the zoo followed by an early morning feeding session.

    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.

    Bring your own food. Animals are great. Food bordering on inedible. And wear very comfy shoes. It's a lot of walking.

    The zoo is ok. The views of CBD and circular quay are better. However, the chicken burrito at the food market is horrible. It’s like chipotle’s ugly cousin with an IQ of 20...inedible congealed mess!

    The animal encounters are quick and maybe a little pricey, but the photographer does a really good job to get an excellent shot.
