Description

Have an incredible experience and get a close-up look at Australia's animals!

Accompanied by the zookeepers of the Taronga Zoo, you will learn how to take care of the animals in the zoo! In particular you will visit a "kitchen for animals" to discover how their food is prepared! You will have the chance to feed the wallabies and kangaroos yourself and even take a photo with a koala! The zookeeper will explain to your small group of 8 people the animals' lifestyles and will take you to places which are out of bounds to the public. You will therefore have a privileged experience and get a close-up look at the animals!

You will also get on the Sky Safari cable car and "fly over" the zoo, observing the animals from the sky! You will also have an incredible view of Sydney Harbour!

You will then use the rest of your time to observe the 2600 animals and 340 species in the zoo! You will see giraffes, lions, gorillas, elephants, kangaroos, wallabies, koalas, snakes, wombats and many more animals living in reproductions of their natural habitats.
