Sydney Zoos & Wildlife Parks

Get up close with Australia's native critters as well as exotic creatures and farmyard favourites.

Visitors of all ages can experience unforgettable wildlife encounters in Sydney's zoos. Come face to snout with some of Australia's marsupials or meet reptiles and marine life. Check out extraordinary animals from around the world on an exciting safari or find out where sick and injured native animals are restored back to health.

Taronga Zoo is Sydney's major zoo and features over 4,000 animals in its waterfront estate. Watch zookeeper talks and animal displays or find out about wildlife conservation. Native animals take centre stage at Wild Life Sydney, where you'll find creatures from all over the continent, including koalas, kangaroos and tropical butterflies.

Dive into the depths at SEA LIFE Sydney Aquarium, which showcases Australia's freshwater and marine aquatic life. Penguins, sharks and tropical fish can be viewed through mesmerising glass tunnels.

Outside of the city, you can meet Australia's scaliest residents at the Australian Reptile Park in Somersby or see native birds and mammals in Featherdale Wildlife Park in Doonside. Familiar farmyard animals are on display at the interactive Symbio Zoo.
