The natural bushland setting, looking out to the Harbour, had me at times forgetting I was at the zoo and actually not in the animal’s jungle homes.
Taronga Zoo is situated on Sydney Harbour at Mosman on the North Shore, one of Sydney’s most exclusive and wealthiest suburbs.
Being Father’s Day, the Zoo seemed to be converted to pram city, and we were happy to throw our two in there with the hordes.
This did not distract us at all from having the most amazing day. The first of many to come with our new family of four.
Spending the day walking around the zoo had me gushing at the exquisite views that stretched out in front of us no matter where we walked.
Being set on a hilly location there were plenty of spots to stop and take in the . And only giving birth 5 days ago. I was more than happy to stop.
There are plenty of places for you to have a picnic lunch with the animals and the views. We loved sitting just back from the giraffes while we ate.
And an afternoon coffee at the Harbour View Cafe, while the girls slept in their prams was simply divine.
There are a wide variety of animals from around the world at Taronga Zoo.
Each animal enclosure has facts on display giving you the opportunity to learn more about these wonderful creatures who are so important to our ecosystem.
We were lucky enough to see the new baby elephants who were born at the zoo.
I even discoverd a few new animals like the Bongo, Malayan Tapir and Binturong. Kalyra was a little disappointed that her favourite Zebras were missing.
There would be very few tourists coming to Australia who do not want to find a kangaroo to ride or a koala to pet.
I can’t guarantee that you will be able to do either but you can definitely use Taronga Zoo as your opportunity to meet our cute and cuddly marsupials, not to forget our birds and reptiles too.
The great thing about our Aussie Animals is that for many of them it is perfectly safe for you to wander around the enclosure with them, give them a pet and have your photo with them. Iwouldn’t advise you do that with a Tazzie devil though!
