Major Events

Taronga Zoo Sydney hosts a number of major events each year.

We continue to review the evolving health situation and respond to changes following the latest advice from NSW Health. In the meantime, Taronga Zoo Sydney is working to support our residents, community groups, local businesses and creative sectors.


While the COVID-19 pandemic continues to have an enormous impact on events of all sizes, we are looking forward to bringing events back to Taronga in a safe way, and are currently planning ahead for our Christmas Concert, 2021 New Years Eve at Taronga, Twilight at Taronga series and Vivid 2022.

These events are subject to the NSW Government’s public health orders, which are continuously amended to address the local impact of the pandemic.

Where events are deemed safe to occur, we will prepare and enact COVID-Safe plans and physical distancing guidelines to safeguard the health and safety of our community, staff and contractors.

We look forward to seeing you all soon!

Twilight at Taronga

If you’ve missed live music and need something to look forward to, Twilight at Taronga presented by Mastercard® will deliver…we’re coming back in January and February 2022!

The annual concert series is the perfect summer evening where the sunset on Sydney Harbour compliments the sounds from the curated

Australian artist line-up as you picnic on the lawns of Taronga Zoo’s natural amphitheatre.

With COVID-Safe guidelines in place, our 2022 season will see a limited number of shows and a reduced number of tickets available, which means we expect to sell out faster than ever before. Our line up is coming soon...

Vivid

Taronga is proud to have been a Vivid Sydney favourite since 2016 when the zoo was lit up for the first time as part of its Centenary celebrations.

Over the years, Taronga has welcomed guests from across Sydney, Australia and the globe for a wild night out, all whilst shining a light on the importance of wildlife conservation.

After a challenging 2020, Taronga will not be taking part in Vivid Sydney 2021, however is excited to work alongside Destination NSW as we plan for future activations.

Guests travelling to Sydney for Vivid this August can still visit Taronga Zoo every day of the year to explore our new African Savannah, which saw the return of lions, and get to know more than 4,000 animals that call Taronga Zoo home.
