Your Explorer

This is a unique overnight experience which will give you a memorable insight into some of Australia’s unique wildlife and allow you to wake up surrounded by the call of the wild. Enjoy animal encounters, a night safari and interactive animal feedings, as well as an all inclusive stay in your own personal luxury safari tent, offering unrivalled views of Sydney Harbour.

After experiencing Taronga behind the scenes you are free to explore the zoo at your leisure the following day and perhaps revisit some of your favourite animal attractions.

Your 2 day explorer starts when the Zoo closes. You and your fellow passengers will be the only people within the zoo grounds as the sun sets. On arrival there are snacks and nibbles available before your opportunity to get up close and personal with some Taronga’s friendliest creatures and some great photo opportunities.

Following a full buffet dinner enjoy an exclusive night safari around the zoo to see some of the more elusive inhabitants and enjoy the spectacular harbour views as the lights of the Opera House, cityscape and Harbour Bridge are illuminated. After dessert it’s lights out as you fall asleep in your permanent safari tent surrounded by the sounds of the animals.

The following day is a chance for you to explore the zoo on an exclusive ‘Behind the Scenes’ tour of the zoo as you see how Taronga prepares for the day ahead and attend to the animal’s daily routines. The rest of the day is yours to experience the zoo at your leisure. Ride the cable car for some amazing harbour views, climb through the trees in the latest attraction ‘High Ropes’ or re visit your favourite animals encountered on your over night stay.
