Tell them ellaslist sent you:
WILD LIFE Sydney Zoo houses the nation’s largest variety of Australian animals under one roof and provides a complete all-Australian wildlife activity experience for kids in the heart of the city in Darling Harbour. From the tiniest insect to one of the world’s largest crocodiles, WILD LIFE Sydney Zoo is home to almost every native creature you can imagine.
Koalas and kangaroos never fail to delight kids and the open-air rooftop enclosure at WILD LIFE Sydney Zoo allows a real up close and personal encounter. Little lovers of creepy crawlies will be thrilled with the many spiders, insects and snakes exhibited. You can also take a trip into the dark, nocturnal world of bilbies, quolls and sugar-gliders.
Fun is flying into WILD LIFE Sydney Zoo with the all-new WILD Flight – a self-propelled ride where kids and parents alike will experience flight through the attraction’s aviary.
Riders can see kangaroos from the sky, glide past Princess Parrots and other feathered friends and even take a daring journey above Rex, the zoo’s huge 5 metre crocodile. As a part of this treetop experience, WILD LIFE Sydney Zoo also welcomes a family of endangered Grey-headed Flying Foxes which can be seen from three different vantage points made accessible by a brand-new treetops observation tower.

Ellaslist Opinion: WILD LIFE Sydney Zoo is an excellent place to introduce children to Australian wildlife and fauna as it houses over 1,000 native animals, insects and reptiles, yet is set in a very contained space and is so easily accessed from the city. Some young children (and a few mums!) may be little unnerved by the giant croc and creepy cassowary but the wallabies are super cute. This is one of our favourite rainy day activities and it is very easy to spend a couple of very pleasant hours here! There’s plenty of room for active kids to race around too. Entry prices are steep but there are often internet deals for cheap tickets and Annual Passes and Combination Tickets also bring the cost down significantly.
