See Sydney from new heights on Taronga Zoo Sydney’s exhilarating high ropes courses. Navigate suspension bridges, climbing walls, flying foxes and more against epic views of Sydney Harbour. 

You’ll swing, step and climb right above the Zoo itself - look down and say hi to our cheeky koalas, emus and kangaroos at the Australian Walkabout along the way. The course can take anywhere from 45 minutes to 2 hours, dependent on the package (and how afraid you are of heights!).

Our four adrenaline-fueled Wild Ropes courses are suitable for kids through to adults - just choose your challenge, strap on a helmet and harness, and get ready to climb!
