Do you remember your first trip to Taronga Zoo? You can bet our original elephants would. On a windy day in 1916, they took a barge across Sydney Harbour and ever since then a trip to Taronga Zoo has been an exciting adventure.

The past 100 years have been made up of both our and your memories and we have been overwhelmed with the volume of memories you have shared with us in celebration for Taronga’s 100th year.

Congratulations to A. Zisoglou, from Rosebery NSW, who has won $5,000 thanks to our Centenary Presenting Partner, ANZ, plus a further $5,000 donation to their Legacy species of choice.

The following runners up have won an annual Zoo Friends membership and Taronga memorabilia pack:

J. Cottle, Oyster Bay NSW
N. Cooper, Shailer Park QLD
K. Garland, Kingston ACT
N. Hawkins, Caringbah NSW
J. Kempers, Taree NSW

Here's to the next 100!
