  • Amazing entry inside a cable car with great views above the tree tops. It’s a not for profit zoo so worth the price if you ask me. Pretty regular around the world. Good knowledge of the residents inside🦒🐘🐊🐅🐍🕷 😉 Cool trek you walk throughout the zoo to see everything and just an overall neat layout. Fun day always
  • Beautiful place to visit either with friends or family. Suitable for everyone from all ages. Ticket price includes use of cable car (gondola), mainly to transport people from the ferry to the main entrance and back. On a quieter days, they allow roundtrips from the top back to the top. Maximize your visit by coming early in the morning and try checking all of the keeper talks and the shows they are doing. It's also overlooking the beautiful Sydney Harbour, just the nice place to take some pictures too.
  • Award-winning zoo. Nice location away from Sydney city centre. Get there by ferry from Circular Quay, then take the cable car to the top entrance and work your way down. Best/cheapest visit is to take the public Sydney Ferries (using the Opal prepay transport card). Buy your zoo tickets online. We bought ours on our mobile while waiting for the ferry. Tickets are cheaper online, and there are family tickets where you can save even more.
  • Took my husband there as part of a treat, our fave was the bird show - it was well planned/choreographed(?) music, the birds surprise entrances, their knowledge and variety of birds. Also loved seeing the seal show, elephants, and everything they had to offer! Taronga Zoo is a must see attraction for the family!
  • This place is awesome. Fantastic views at every turn. Great collection of animals. Even cooling breezes on hot days. On busy days it can take a while to see everything but family tickets are great value.

Where to stay in Mosman

Staying in Mosman is a good choice for visitors who prefer to base themselves outside of Sydney's busy central district and yet close to all of the city's action and tourist attractions. At first glance, the neighborhood's accommodation options might seem limited, with only a couple of boutique hotels and bed and breakfasts. If you cast your nets more widely, however, you'll find a broad selection of privately owned rental apartments both in the center of the neighborhood and by the coast, in all shapes and sizes. Entire houses available for short-term rental make a great option for large groups.
