Welcome in the New Year at Taronga Zoo!

Along with spectacular views of the Harbour festivities, enjoy an experience of the wild kind and welcome in the New Year with the roar of the lions and warbles and squawks of night-time Zoo creatures.

Taronga Zoo is renowned as one of the most memorable foreshore venues for New Year’s Eve, offering a unique experience for couples and individuals and a fun, safe and stress-free atmosphere for families.

The family friendly environment allows you to relax and enjoy the festivities and fireworks in the famous Taronga Zoo grounds. You can bring your own picnic as well as purchase food and drinks on-site.
