  • Sydney: Harbour Cruise, Taronga Zoo and Sky Safari

    2. Sydney: Harbour Cruise, Taronga Zoo and Sky Safari

    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.

    The GetYourGuide deal was great value for money. Our express ferry with captain cook cruises was prompt and the staff were very friendly. It was wonderful to hear a bit of history about the harbour through the boat staff on the way over to Taronga. The express ferry had numerous return trips running throughout the day as well which was wonderful. The sky safari at Taronga also saved us a lot of time getting into the zoo, which allowed us to have a full day exploring the zoo. This deal is definitely worth purchasing.

What people are saying about Sydney

The Aquarium was amazing we spend 4 hrs here and the kids absolutely loved every second! Our second experience was in wild life zoo it was a little less impressive and a lot of animals that had 1 friend if any at all looked barely enriched- numbat, tree kangaroo, echidna & Quokka all housed without the same species.

Good selection of food, good service and were able to change our booking to an earlier one as we got there early. Free drink on arrival as we booked on,one. All food labelled so we knew about allergens which was really helpful. Will definitely go there again.

The whole experience flowed well, suitable for all who can walk up ramps and down stairs.

Easy to book and great directions from all staff for next attraction

Totally worth the money. The whole vibe and energy was amazing
