Closures and Works

Closures and Works

We're working towards a positive future for wildlife. We understand there is never a good time to build a better Zoo, however the work we are investing in is to improve our animal habitats and deliver experiences that influence positive behaviour change to support the future of our wildlife.

You may come across some construction work when you visit Taronga Zoo Sydney, so we have listed any upcoming disruptions below. Most of our animals can be seen as usual, and we can also assure you that there is still plenty to see and do.

  • Seal Bay Exhibit Works: From 4.30pm on Sunday 13 October 2019 to the morning of Wednesday 16 October 2019, seals will be off display due to important exhibit maintenance. You can still catch the Seal Show at 11am and 2pm daily (Map ref. 9F)
  • Penguin Exhibit Clean: the Penguin exhibit will be emptied during the morning on Thursday 17 October for exhibit cleaning. Our Penguins will be back on display after lunchtime
  • The Tasmanian Devil exhibit is currently closed until further notice due to construction works nearby. You can still get up close to a Tasmanian Devil in our Nocturnal House (Map ref. 5J)

We apologise for any inconvenience caused.

Coming soon: Savannah

Giraffe, Zebra and more will call the Savannah home.
Giraffe, Zebra and more will call the Savannah home.

You may notice that a lot is changing at the Zoo. That's because we're creating a new African adventure, Savannah.

Among the animals that will call Savannah home are African Lions, Fennec Foxes, Zebra, Giraffe and Meerkats. Be inspired by wildlife, stories and songs from the vast Savannah grasslands when our new adventure opens.

The Savannah is a part of our 10 year Centenary capital revitalisation plan that began with the opening of Tiger Trek, a world-class, immersive wildlife experience aimed at educating and inspiring guests to help make a positive difference for critically endangered wildlife.
