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 keep-cups are temporarily not available on site. These have been replaced with our fully compostable alternatives
  • Seating across our food and beverage facilities set up for social distancing and is limited. At times our indoor dining areas will not be available
