TARONGA ZOO

Its worldwide preservation projects make Taronga Zoo one of the more actively conservation-focused zoos in the world. Along with a huge assortment of species to see and learn about (you need a full day to check out everything), the ferry ride and views of the city and Sydney Harbour alone justify the admission fee.
