The winter school holidays are approaching fast, so make sure you’re in with a chance to snap up family passes to Taronga Zoo Sydney!

With clear blue skies, and warm, dry days forecasted, the winter school holidays are the perfect time for a wild adventure with the whole family at Taronga Zoo Sydney. Explore the new Australian native wildlife experience Nura Diya Australia, breathe in the fresh air up high on the Wild Ropes Adventure course, enjoy the antics of the zoo’s Chimpanzee youngsters and take in the sights of Sydney Harbour from the only zoo with the view.

Start your day by swinging in to watch in awe the antics of Taronga Zoo’s 21-strong Chimpanzee community. Spot the three playful and adventurous young juveniles in the group who range in age from two and a half- to five -years-old, and meet Lemba, a now 4-week-old Chimpanzee baby who is stealing the hearts of the community, zookeepers, and guests alike. There really isn’t a better time to come and learn about our closest living relatives. The best time to catch the community at their most playful is at the daily Chimpanzee Talk at 12pm.

Next up, explore the new immersive native wildlife experience, Nura Diya Australia. Stroll amongst Kangaroos and Emus, come paw to paw with two young Dingoes Warada and Kep Kep and adventure up high along a brand-new canopy walk and into the trees to see the colony of Koalas.

Come together at Ngununy Nura, Taronga Zoo’s new Cultural Garden, to pay respects to Elders, past, present, and emerging. Taronga will be celebrating NAIDOC week with daily cultural activities including dance workshops, basket weaving, bush tucker talks and storytelling, from 1 – 15 July.

Come and meet Taronga’s amazing Keepers and learn things you never knew about your favourite animal at one of the 13 keeper talks – on every day and free with your zoo ticket. Plus, there’s a new ‘Aussie Animals Alive’ show to enjoy every day of the school holidays, where you’ll meet some of Australia’s most iconic native animals like the Short-beaked Echidna, Lesser Sooty Owl and even the elusive Platypus.

Six-month-old Long-nosed Fur Seal pup Kobe has well and truly found his swimming flippers under the watchful eye of mum Keke at Seal Bay. Guests can have an unforgettable time in the splash zone and learn how to help Kobe’s incredible species at three daily Seals for the Wild presentations, powered by Red Energy.

Finish your great day out with a Wild Ropes Treetops Adventure. Get a bird’s eye view of the brand-new Nura Diya Australia and look over beautiful Sydney Harbour as you test your balance across junior and adult courses.

Want to sort all your holidays for less than 65c a day? Upgrade your zoo ticket to a Zoo Friends Annual Membership where you can have 365 days of fun at Taronga Zoo Sydney and Taronga Western Plains Zoo Dubbo and get access to discounts across gifts, retail, Taronga experiences, events, and accommodation!

  • My son & I have never been, would be an awesome first time zoo adventure for the both of us.

  • Wow what a great prize. Neither myself or my 4 children have ever been to Taronga zoo. This would make for a memorable ‘first’ for all of us!

  • I haven’t been with my girls in years. Its such a perfect family day out and we’d love to see the new attractions and meet the new baby chimpanzee. With cost of living rising we don’t get to experience as many family days out as I’d like. This’d be amazing!

  • Love the giraffes, the meerkats too,
    Love the animals at Taronga Zoo,
    The scenery’s so beautiful it makes you stop,
    Love Sydney Harbour as the Zoo’s backdrop.

  • The sincerity of volunteers, the passion of the zookeepers and the magical views of Sydney Harbour that combine to make Taronga Zoo one of the best experiences you can have in the harbour city. Taronga is not for profit, every dollar you spend their contributes to helping them save wildlife.

  • The last time we visited as a family the youngest was in a pram. It was tiring to get to see the entire zoo in one day so I’d love to take the kids back now they are older. We absolutely love animals & zoo visits are definitely a favourite family day out.

  • In Taronga’s embrace, wonders unfold,
    A zoo of enchantment, a story untold.
    For family’s delight, a journey awaits,
    Nature’s symphony, a chorus of mates.
    Kangaroos hop, koalas rest with grace,
    Lions roar, elephants leave a trace.
    Memories made, hearts filled with glee,
    Taronga Zoo Sydney, a cherished family spree.

  • We always visit Family in Sydney, would love to be able to add this special place into our itinerary.
    Thanks so much

  • My ASD level 2 son loves animals and would absolutely adore visiting Taronga Zoo as it is a different experience to the Melbourne Zoo. His little brother is a baby and has not had a chance to experience many things as he has been unwell since he was born 7 months ago.

  • We have not been to the Zoo since my kids were little. Would amazing to go in the holidays as I have had to drop to part time work due to caring for my father and have not been able to afford most things for the kids in the holidays.

  • It’s fun and awesome day out, the animals, the city views, the shady pathways. Each kid has a different favourite animal so we always see the dingoes, meerkats and tigers. We’ve been planning to try the wild ropes course now that the kids are older.

  • Learning about animals that we may never see in the wild what a privilege!

  • I would love to win so we can chat with the Chimps, kick it with the Kangaroos and dance with the Dromedary!

  • Living rural we would live a trip to Sydney for a week
    Staying with our son
    So a trip to the best zoo in the world would be awesome

  • For a fantastic day out and to see the cute seal pup Kobe while he is still young
