Taronga’s newest immersive experience, Nura Diya Australia is now open. Explore 23 iconic and rare Australian species and the unique habitats that call home.
Along the 400-metre walking trail, you will stroll amongst Kangaroos, come paw-to-paw with our Dingo pups, walk within the tree canopy to see Koalas up close and then venture into the darkness to see curious night-loving creatures.
