Elephant Ride

For many Sydneysiders, an elephant ride is a powerful and fond memory of Taronga Zoo. Elephant rides were a feature at both Moore Park and Taronga zoos, where faviourites like Jessie and Jumbo carried up to 10 people at a time in specially  made elephant saddles.

The last elephant ride was given in 1976.
