Food and Drink

The health and safety of our guests and our staff is Taronga’s top priority and we will take all necessary precautions to ensure their continued welfare as we manage risks associated with the current COVID-19 outbreak.

In response, Taronga Zoo Sydney has put the following measures directly affecting food and drink offerings in place effective immediately:

  • Cash will not be accepted at any of our outlets with contactless payments preferred
  • Reusable cutlery and dine in options are temporarily not available on site. Cutlery has been replaced with our fully compostable alternatives
  • BYO reusable coffee cups are now accepted at our cafes, however they must be visibly clean and empty. Staff will prepare your order in our fully compostable cups if we are unable to accept your reusable cup
  • Seating across our food and beverage facilities set up for social distancing and is limited
  • Our queues are configured for physical distancing, please follow all signage and floor markings
