Food and Drink

NOTE: 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:

  • Reusable cutlery and keep-cups are temporarily not available on site. These have been replaced with our fully biodegradable alternative
  • Seating across our food and beverage facilities set up for social distancing

For more details on what the Zoo is doing to keep you safe, stay updated on our COVID-19 notice page.

Forage and Graze

Fancy a flat white amongst the peacocks? Grab a light meal at Forage and Graze (near the Zoo’s entrance) before you head in. Or pop in for lunch under the courtyard’s gumtree, for a view of the tree kangaroos.
