WILD LIFE Sydney Zoo

WILD LIFE Sydney Zoo is located in Darling Harbour, and opened on the 13 September 2011. We’ve compiled a list about each and every animal at the zoo, and here’s our list


There are 2 different Koala habitats at WILD LIFE Sydney Zoo. The 5 different koalas at the zoo are all so adorable and fluffy. If you’re lucky, you might get to see one of the Koalas up and about, but they are most likely to be sleeping. You can also purchase a ‘Breakfast with the Koalas’ package on the WILD LIFE Sydney Zoo website. Or you can get a ‘Koala Photo Experience’! Or both!


The Kangaroos in WILD LIFE Sydney Zoo are super cute and fluffy. The whole family is bound to enjoy seeing these fluffy friends.

The zoos resident Quokka ‘Davey’ is super cute and friendly. He loves coming up and saying hello to visiting humans! We don’t trying to pat Davey, but we do recommend you try to get a selfie through the glass.

The zoos resident Salt Water Crocodile ‘Rocky’, like most crocodiles, spends most of his time resting in his large pool. Salt Water Crocodiles are the largest reptile in the world, measuring six meters from tip to tail. At WILD LIFE Sydney Zoo, you can enter one of two large glass pods that look out into Rocky’s habitat. Kids will love being up close and personal with this amazing creature!
