Taronga Zoo Australia
Taronga Zoo was one of the first places i visited on my trip to Sydney Australia .
It is only a short ferry ride to the other side of Sydney harbour and you also get to see some spectacular scenery on your journey , for example the sydney opera house .
Once you arrive at Taronga Zoo your given a choice , either walk uphill to the entrance or take an overhead tram ride .
Think i know which one im taking ... the scenery & view from the overhead tram was amazing.
Enter the zoo ... once your at the zoo starting point you get given a map and it’s like a safari trek with a few different ways to embark on . It’s well sign posted so getting lost shouldn’t be an option .
One thing i really liked about Taronga Zoo is that in every other zoo ive visited it’s obvious that the animals are put into enclosures that are custom made for them , but at Taronga Zoo it really looks like the animals are in their natural habitat and safety zones & walkways have been made around the animals .
There is so much to see and do at Taronga Zoo so if you do ever visit make sure you dedicate a whole day to the cause . I think the number stated was over 4000 animals were at the zoo.
Another great feature was the shows which were on at the zoo , for example the bird show or the sea life show . These take place at certain times and you have to read the program and get there in time to get in as the que’s can be long .
I got to see the bird show and it was spectacular, different birds came flying out and did exactly as the keepers wanted them to . It was truly amazing . We all sat around in an open arena and the birds flew around us performing certain tasks .
It really is a great place to visit , children aswel as adults absolutely love it here as it was quite evident. Next time im in Sydney id definately visit Taronga zoo again.
