Wildlife Retreat Packages

Wildlife Retreat Packages

The Wildlife Retreat offers a range of packages that feature up-close animal experiences. Revel in the natural beauty of the bushland, and step into a lush sanctuary where koalas and echidnas roam, and platypus swim. Join guided tours with our passionate keepers, immerse yourself in their stories and learn from their expertise.

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.

Immerse yourself in the stories of our expert keepers on exclusive tours within our unique eco-retreat, nestled inside Taronga Zoo Sydney. And feel inspired, knowing that income from every Wildlife Retreat stay directly supports Taronga’s important animal conservation programs in Australia and around the world.
