Did you know Taronga Zoo has Access Taronga days, which are dedicated to guests on the autism spectrum? On these days, those on the spectrum and their friends can enjoy early entry (8.30am) to Taronga Zoo Sydney. It's a great opportunity for you to enjoy the peace and quiet of the Zoo before it opens to the general public.

The Sky Safari opens (offering round trips from the Top Entrance) and extra animal meet and greets are offered. VIP animal badges are also be given to guests on the spectrum who wish to wear one, allowing the trained staff at the Zoo to easily identify anyone that might need additional support.

Autism Spectrum Australia have been working with the Zoo for several years on this great initiative.  Register here if you would ike to hear about their next Access Taronga Day.
