Taronga is giving some favourite exhibits facelifts so you might come across some construction work when you visit Taronga Zoo. Although you’ll notice work going on, 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: The Sky Safari will be closed for maintenance from 2 March 2015 to 2 April 2015. In addition to normal buses, there will be a shuttle bus operating between 10am and 2:15pm on Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays to take you from the ferry wharf to the top entrance. You can also enter the Zoo via the lower shop entrance, which will be open daily from 9:30am.

Concert lawns: The concert lawns will be closed every Friday and Saturday until 21 March 2015 inclusive due to set-up for the Twilight at Taronga concerts.

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
