Family Escape Package

Family Escape Package

Be transported a world away in your own backyard with a Family Escape – the ultimate Zoo staycation. Nestled in lush bushland overlooking spectacular Sydney Harbour, the Wildlife Retreat is the perfect haven to create new family memories whilst connecting with nature, unique Australian wildlife and each other.

Welcome to the Wildlife Retreat at Taronga on Cammeraigal country, an immersive, overnight experience like no other.

The Wildlife Retreat is located just 15 minutes from Sydney CBD yet feels a world away, in a secluded, harbourside bushland setting. It’s a peaceful, rejuvenating experience that connects guests with native Australian wildlife and forms an integral part of Taronga’s vision to achieve a shared future for people and wildlife.

Be inspired, knowing that income from your family stay at the Wildlife Retreat directly supports Taronga’s important animal conservation programs in Australia and around the world.
