Closures and Works

Closures and Works

Important update

To ensure guest and staff safety, the normal experience has slightly changed. Find out more about how we're keeping you safe and what changes this involves.


We're working towards a positive future for wildlife and this means that sometimes there could be closures or works ongoing that may impact your experience. 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.

We thank you in advance for your patience and understanding.

Exhibits or areas that are currently closed for works include:

  • On Thursday 31 December 2020, the 2pm Seals for the Wild presentation and 3pm QBE Free-flight Bird Show will be cancelled due to the Zoo's earlier closing time in preparation for the Zoo's New Year's Eve functions. Don't forget, you can still enjoy our 11am and 1pm Seals for the Wild presentations or join us for our 12pm QBE Free-flight Bird Show

  • Platypus House (map ref. 4J) is closed for maintenance works, you can still catch the Platypus swimming near the Wildlife Retreat at Taronga (map ref. 5I)

  • Changes to the Sky Safari's operating hours - now 10am to 3pm. We encourage all our guests to listen out to PA announcements across the day for operating times. Read more information about the Sky Safari.
