Taronga Zoo has a guided tour that showcases the strong connection between Aboriginal people and their culture and native wildlife. Led by an Aboriginal guide, the Nura Diya Aboriginal Discovery Tour visits the unique native animals in the zoo.
You’ll hear stories of the Dreaming, describing the creation of animals and the landscape, and learn about traditional uses of plants for food and medicine. You can interact with koalas, kangaroos, wallabies and a vast array of Australia’s birds.
Reserve your tickets in advance for the two-hour small-group tour. It operates Monday, Wednesday and Friday at 9.45am, with a maximum of eight people, and includes morning tea, all-day admission to Taronga Zoo and use of the Sky Safari cable car.
One of the best ways to get to Taronga Zoo is by ferry from Circular Quay, which is near the historic Rocks and the city centre. The journey time by ferry is about 12 minutes across Sydney Harbour, one of the world’s most beautiful natural harbours.
