    Go to the zoo and HUG A KOALA BEAR.

    P.S. You have to pay A$10 to hug one of these koalas!. Man, they're so cuddly and cute. And I was so tempted to bring one back home with me too.
    I was told that the word 'Koala' is an aboriginal word for 'animal that can live without water...' They have soft thick fur which keeps them warm in winter and helps them keep their skin dry when it rains. They also have very strong CLAWS (ouch!!) and sleep most of the day... 16 hours (gee, sounds like me!!).... And they eat ONLY gum (eucalyptus) leaves.... So, please don't feed them any other types of food OK?!

    You can get to the zoo by ferrie.
    The zoo is located on a hill.
    The easiest way to walk through the zoo is from the top.
    You can get to the top by Skyrail.
    From the zoo you have a great view over parts of Sydney.

    Our zookeeper with a baby wombat

    Beautiful. They have since rennovated since I was there last, but it was a fun time. Take the ferry across the harbour to get there. They have really yummy food too. Enjoy!!

    Koala Bear at Taronga Zoo

    One of the better zoos I have visited. Very well laid out and the animals look relatively happy. There is also a fantastic view of the city from the zoo.

    Sydney view

    In the Taronga Zoo you will find a view point. You have to try this point to see the hole Sydney. I think this point is the nicest place in Sydney.

    Maybe one of the best zoos in World - Taronga Zoo

    by MJL Written Feb 25, 2003
    Maybe one of the most famous resident.

    Just take a ferry from Circular Quay to Taronga Zoo and then a cable car to upper part of the zoo. It is easier to walk down back to shore.

    Sydney Zoo, In January all activities off the Sydney festival, including the Jaz concert at Manly.
    Visit Paddington Market. It's a open market with a lot off interesting stuff.
