Wildlife Retreat at Taronga

Following recent advice from the NSW Health Department and Federal Government on how best to manage the risks associated with the current COVID-19 outbreak, the Wildlife Retreat at Taronga will be temporarily closed.

The health and safety of our guests, our staff and the animals in our care is Taronga’s highest priority and we sincerely apologise for any disruption this will cause.

Reviews

Unforgettable experience
"This was an experience I’ll never forget. Put this on your travel bucket list. You won’t regret it and you’ll be supporting Taronga’s important conservation work at the same time!"

From Ro&Dave on TripAdvisor

But above all, expect to leave changed forever.

Having found your place in a bigger purpose.

And knowing that your stay has made a meaningful difference.

Because at Taronga we’re not for profit, we’re for the wild.
