Rydges World Square
Attractions & Activities in Sydney CBD & Inner
When you stay Rydges, you stay local, and there’s nothing quite like a truly local experience.
Taronga Zoo is an icon of Sydney and is nestled on the shores of the Sydney Harbour. With just a short 12 minute ferry ride from Circular Quay you can see more than 350 animal species including many native Australia animals and exotic species with daily keeper talks so you can learn more!
Start the adventure with the animal encounters which are a memorable experience to see the animals up-close. You can hand-feed a giraffe or cuddle a koala, the experience is designed for you to enjoy and never forget! You could even take the chance to be a ‘Keeper for a Day”. This takes you behind the scenes and into the routines that the keepers do each day. Being a “Keeper for a Day” brings the massive advantage of bringing you up close with some of the zoo’s favourite animals.
You could also take a guided tour of the zoo and discover the hidden gems with the zoo including a tour of the Wildlife Hospital. Alternatively, the Australia Walkabout tour lets you explore interactive displays and brings you up close the country’s native wildlife.
