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.

Facilities Updates:

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 Koala photo encounters and 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 and that you join the 3.30pm Koala keeper talk to learn more about this extraordinary Australian animal. 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:

  • Green Winged Macaw
  • Eastern Barred Bandicoot
  • Gorillas are currently off display until Wednesday 6th August 2014 for family bonding time. Don't miss our other primates on display like Chimpanzees (Map Ref 14K), Gibbons (Map Ref 14C & 8H), Leaf Monkeys (Map Ref 14E) and Spider Monkeys (Map Ref 5I).

The following birds are not currently featured in our QBE Free-Flight Bird Show

Note: The QBE Bird Show has been loved so much, it now needs to be closed for a short time for the venue to be refreshed! You can enjoy a Training presentation at 11am at the Bird amphitheatre (Map ref: H16)  and also a Condor talk at 2pm (Map ref: F15).

  • White-bellied Sea Eagle
  • Eclectus Parrots
  • Rufous Owl

Also, our Peregrine Falcon only makes shows when weather permits
