Overview
Taronga Zoo is home to Aussie animals including kangaroos, koalas, and wombats, and lies just across the harbour from downtown Sydney. On this tour, combine all-day entrance to the zoo with round-trip ferry tickets—the quickest and most scenic way to reach the zoo from the city. Enjoy magnificent views as you cruise across Sydney Harbour, then spend as long as you like exploring the zoo.
