The behind the scenes zoo tour was completely worth this ticket price. We were able to get up close with the koalas and hands on many of the native Australian animals. A cable car ride is included with the ticket price which takes you directly to the ferry to make your way quickly back to the Sydney harbor. Beautiful and well taken care of zoo. The zoo can easily be seen during the day and still have your evening free to book another tour.

Wow!!!! This is a wonderful opportunity like no other to be exposed to the behind the scenes of a world-class zoo. The tour began by taking a Sky Tram up the hill to the start of the tour and top of the zoo - what a great view of the zoo and its animals from the sky! The zoo keepers and guides were knowledgeable, professional and answered all of our questions regarding the zoo, the animals, and their care. We fed the kangaroos and wallabies. The wallabies were very human-friendly and we were able to pet them while we fed them. We spent time up close and personal with the koala bears - we even had photo opportunities. The group also visited the inner sanctum of the zoo kitchen, where we learned about food sources and preparation. We even participated in putting some of the meals together - I received a handful of live worms - with eyes closed - that are part of the Bilbie diet. We then visited the Nocturnal House and met a couple of Bilbies who were anxiously awaiting their meal. We also spent time with a platypus - a most unusual mammal with venom secreting glands. We were treated to tea and scones, and had the rest of the day to explore the rest of the zoo. This experience is one I will cherish always, as I had the opportunity to experience these animals and their surroundings like never before and likely, never again.

Our family had an amazing Wild Australia Experience. We enjoyed our enthusiastic tour guide, Natalie, who gave us a fun and insightful tour. We got up close pictures with a Koala, Wallaby, and assorted other animals. We got to feed and pet a Wallaby. This was a totally worthwhile tour- a must do.

This is a must do for the solo traveler like me, couples, and families with well behaved children. Its not often you get to see the inner workings of a zoo and this gives you a small sneak peek. Our zookeeper guide was amazing as well. She was fun, friendly and very informative.
