COVID Safe information

Last updated Monday 10 May 2021

Taronga’s two Zoos offer guests a unique opportunity to experience the outdoors and reconnect with wildlife. Next time you visit you may notice a few changes that ensure our sites remain COVID Safe for you, your family, our team and our animals.

Below are a few tips to make your next visit as safe, fun and enjoyable as possible!

If you have cold or flu symptoms, we ask that you please stay home and do not visit.

Most pre-booked tickets can be changed to an alternate date at no charge. Excludes promotional offers. Tickets purchased during a promotional period using a discount code are not transferable to a date outside the promotional date range stated in the Terms and Conditions of that promotion. Please ensure to check the specific full terms and conditions when buying tickets during a promotional period.

Safety measures

Following the most recent advice from NSW Health, Taronga has implemented the following additional measures to ensure our Zoos remain a low-risk environment for you and your family to enjoy. 

Wearing face masks: Whilst masks are no longer mandatory indoors following the latest NSW Health advice, we do recommend you bring a mask when you visit. Our staff will continue to wear masks to keep you safe.

Pre-book your visit: All tickets and member visits must be pre-booked online.

Bring your essentials upon arrival:

  • Your e-ticket
  • Facemask
  • Personal hygiene kit (including sanitiser)
  • Contactless payment method
  • Sunscreen
  • Water bottle

Check-in via the Service NSW App: Along with pre-booking your tickets, all visitors will also be asked to check in using the Service NSW app when you arrive on site. This includes all members of any family groups, including children.

Maintain social distancing: Staff and guests are required to maintain 1.5m physical distancing at all times where possible.

Guests are not permitted to visit Taronga’s Zoos in Sydney and Dubbo or stay overnight if it contravenes state or federal travel restrictions, border closures and public health orders relating to COVID-19. If you have been asked to self-isolate, please do not enter Taronga Zoo Sydney or Taronga Western Plains Zoo Dubbo.
