Taronga Zoo Tourist Attraction

Taronga Zoo

Sydney zoo Taronga was opened in the beginning of the XXth century, in 1916. Its name translated from the local aboriginal language means "Beautiful view". Today it is located on 30 acres and is divided into eight zoological sectors. You can get to the zoo by car or by ferry. The second option is more exciting and interesting. Taronga is one of the largest zoos in the world, it is home for about 3000 animals, many of which are quite rare and are endangered species. Its great location and stunning scenery complement the overall impression from walking around the zoo. Here you can see not only representatives of the Australian fauna, but also animals from other continents. There are African elephants, lions and giraffes, Asian tigers, Tibetan red pandas, primates, reptiles, amphibians, birds from different corners of the planet. Comfortable conditions are created for each of them in Taronga Zoo. Periodically, the zoo hosts bright and interesting shows with the participation of birds and animals. The performance with sea lions deserves special attention. These funny trained seals demonstrate wonders of acrobatics and dressage. Another show, which many visitors of Taronga hasten to see is a performance with the participation of Australian parrots and other birds. Taronga Zoo is not only a place for townspeople and tourists. There are constantly conducted research works on studying of different types of animals here. A group of scientists works to increase populations of endangered species, and this work gives great results. Taronga Zoo works every day, including weekends and holidays, from 9 am to 5 pm.
