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.

  • On Thursday 12 December 2019, the Sky Safari will not be in operation due to scheduled maintenance works. For guests arriving by Ferry on this day, the 238 bus route meets every ferry arriving to Taronga Zoo Sydney with a direct route to the Top (Main) Entrance of the Zoo
  • The Tasmanian Devil exhibit is currently closed until further notice due to construction works nearby

We apologise for any inconvenience caused.

Coming soon: African Savannah

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