Not to be confused with Taronga Zoo (Sydney’s premier outdoor zoo), this inner-city attraction has a big collection of Australian creatures, including kangaroos, a cassowary, snakes, wallabies, Tasmanian Devils, birds, and butterflies. You’ll find koalas lazing around in the rooftop garden. The new Wild Discovery Zone was designed especially for kids, with hands-on animal encounters. You walk through eight themed Australian habitats, each with its own inhabitants. No elephants or giraffes here, but it might not matter!
