Dreaming of travelling around Australia and visiting some of the most popular destinations in and around? As I am writing this post, I mesmerize my trip to Sydney on the breezy Autumn season & still now feel the bright sun-kissed my cheek and the heavenly breeze caressing my hairs in a cinematic style on the route of Taronga Zoo. Here is my The ultimate Guide of Taronga Zoo, Sydney – Way to spend a day.
The chirping of birds and groaning of tigers have gathered to welcome us for an excellent view of the jungle. I can still hear those sounds and can virtually see that day from my room. Here I am sharing how you can spend one day at Taronga Zoo, Sydney. One of the most worthwhile trips of my Sydney visit is Taronga Zoo or Taronga Conservation Society.
Taronga Zoo officially opened over 100 years ago on 7 October 1916. Taronga Zoo intends to consistently enhance the creature territories while endeavouring to raise their guest encounters. They encase a cafe, a zoo shop, and an information centre. The zoo is partitioned into 8 zoo-geographic regions. You can meet creatures like kangaroos, different species of birds and wallabies which are part of local Australian untamed life.
It is additionally home to Sumatran tigers which are basically jeopardized with less than 350 alive everywhere throughout the globe. Apparently, 228 mammals, 552 birds, and 64 reptiles were relocated from other zoos.
If you have an Opal card ( Read my blog on Opal card) you will easily take ferries, buses or trains with the use of the card. Ferries are most convenient to reach the Zoo. From Circular Quay you will easily get the ferry which takes 12 to 15 minutes to reach the Zoo. Make sure to step outside a bit to get some amazing shots of the harbour bridge and opera house. You can opt for the Bus from central, Town Hall and Wynyard train stations or drive too which take some more additional time to reach the Zoo.
Once you reach the dock you have a choice for a walk, bus or skyway lift.
I suggest you take the skyway lift as you can be witnessed the most amazing beauty of Taronga.
A magical experience it was for me. The different species of seals such as the Australian sea lion, Californian sea lion, and New Zealand fur seal were performing their best dynamic postures while playing with sounds.
A very interesting and loving moment when you try to feed an adorable one. They have a specific time for this. So, book in advance with the ticket.
Very interesting show as you get to know about Penguine’s habit, their nature, and behaviour.
There are a lot of restaurants inside the Zoo and you can see the birds are walking around you while having some snacks too.
