Summer holiday adventures at Sydney’s Taronga Zoo

Five TWT readers can win family passes to Sydney’s famous Taronga Zoo during the summer school holidays.

Young Zoo explorers will be able to keep cool with Taronga Zoo animals, swing around the treetops, enjoy Sydney’s ultimate sleepover with Roar and Snore and even fly to Sumatra.

As a special summer enrichment, the family can watch as frozen ice treats including ‘fishcicles’ and red iceblocks are devoured by animals including our Australian Sea-lions and Sumatran Tigers.

Other animals will be keeping their cool in the water, such as Jai Dee the Asian Elephant calf who has begun to explore the pool in the top Elephant Paddock.

Families can also enjoy a summer holiday in Indonesia by stepping into Sumatra at Taronga Zoo Sydney’s Tiger Trek.

This is the first summer holidays that the Tiger Trek has opened, and families are invited to discover the four Sumatran Tigers in our care inside our exciting and immersive new exhibit.

With as few as 400 Sumatran Tigers remaining in the wild, this is a rare and wonderful opportunity to learn more about these powerful and majestic animals, as well as the threats they face.

With the opening of Junior Wild Ropes course for children aged 3 years and over, the whole family can now take on the exciting challenge of swinging between obstacles high above Taronga’s Australian walkabout.

This spectacular outdoor activity overlooks the Sydney Harbour Bridge and the Opera House and will have the whole family navigating more than 60 obstacles over 90 minutes while spotting koalas, kangaroos, emus and wallabies.

Wild Ropes tickets may be bought with Zoo tickets at a discounted rate online. With the warmer weather, it’s an ideal time of year to stay overnight and enjoy Sydney’s ultimate sleepover with Roar and Snore at Taronga Zoo Sydney. Roar and Snore includes an exclusive night safari, a delicious buffet dinner and gourmet refreshments to recover from your wild adventures.
