Taronga is giving some favourite exhibits facelifts so you might come across some construction work when you visit Taronga Zoo. Although you’ll notice work going on, most of our 2,500 animals are on display as usual but there are some that are presently off exhibit.
We are currently building an exciting new Zoo experience 'Wild Ropes'. While this work is underway there may be some minor disruption within the Zoo and our Australian Walk-through will be closed. There may also be temporary closures to our Nocturnal House. To get the best from your visit during this time we suggest you visit Backyard to Bush where you can still see a wide variety of Australian native animals up-close. Don't forget to check the signage on arrival to see the most current information for your day's visit.
Animals currently off display at Taronga Zoo include:
- Eastern Barred Bandicoot
- Brazilian Tapir
The following birds are not currently featured in our QBE Free-Flight Bird Show
- White-bellied Sea Eagle
- Eclectus Parrots
- Rufous Owl
Also, our Peregrine Falcon only makes shows when weather permits
