Full description
Experience the most fun way to travel to Taronga Zoo and save money with a return ticket on the rocket ferry Circular Quay. Once inside the zoo, take in as many of the exhibits as you like at your own pace. Explore 10 themed areas, including Wild Australia, Wild Asia and the Great Southern Oceans. Hear talks by the zookeepers and go to interactive shows, such as the free bird show and free seal show. See native Australian animals, including koala and platypus, along with creatures from around the world such as Asian elephants, lions and giraffe. Grab some lunch at one of the many cafés, or take your own picnic and find a nice spot in the shade. Once you've had your animal fix for the day, head back to the dock and get some amazing views of Sydney on the cruise back to Circular Quay.

It is smooth as you just have to reach the meeting spot and they give you the zoo ticket and ferry trip. I really liked the zoo, you beed minimum 3 hours to explore it and could be easily 5 hours. On a money wise point, you can just buy directly the zoo ticket online, and go paying the public ferry either Saturday or Sunday and overal it will be cheaper (it will cost you max 9 AUD for both ferry trips, and it's very straightforward). During week days, the activity from this site may be more convenient.

There wasn’t enough times for the ferry. We had to buy tickets for another boat as we would have had to wait an hour for the Nxt one and same on the way back. I would not do it this way next time as we flew down for the day from the GC so had to be very specific on times to and from air port so our time at the zoo was cut short to get back on time.

The harbor cruise and sky safari were cool modes of transportation. However, the zoo was average and like any other zoo in Germany. The only special were the koalas and the kangaroos. Although I have to say that you can also watch the kangaroos in the wild in the evening. However, thank you for the offer and the uncomplicated booking.
