Taronga is giving some favourite exhibits facelifts, so you might come across some construction work when you visit Taronga Zoo. Most of our 2,500 animals are on display as usual, but there are some that are presently off exhibit.

Infrastructure and maintenance:

Sky Safari Closure 29 July 2015: As part of WorkCover annual certification requirements, the NSW Fire & Rescue have to carry out at least one training exercise per year on gondola rescue. This requires Sky Safari to be closed for a morning to allow them to train with cabins on line.
The training exercise is scheduled to take place on Wednesday 29 July 2015. The Sky Safari will be closed from 8am until approximately midday.
We apologise for any inconvenience.

 Seal Show Closure: The Seal Show will be closed from Monday 3 August to Friday 7 August 2015 inclusive, due to maintenance. There will be a seal talk at Seal Bay at 11am daily.

Animals currently off display at Taronga Zoo include:

  • Eastern Barred Bandicoot

The following birds are not currently featured in our QBE Free-Flight Bird Show

  • White-bellied Sea Eagle
  • Eclectus Parrots
  • Rufous Owl

Also, our Peregrine Falcon only makes shows when weather permits. Please check the Daily Timetable for availability and cancellations.
