The Wildlife Retreat at Taronga Zoo perfectly combines animal viewing and education with luxury accommodation, great dining, and world-class views.
The retreat is nestled in the bushland of Taronga Zoo, overlooking Sydney harbour. A stay includes dinner, breakfast, animal tours and complimentary Zoo access. Make sure to book in early if you're keen for the daybreak tour which starts at sunrise!
There are 62 rooms in five environmentally sensitive and sustainably designed lodges. Choose from Bushland rooms, Animal View, Harbour View, or Treetop Suites. We enjoyed our night with the Koalas in an Animal View room, with full views of the exclusive sanctuary that is part of the retreat.
Grab a drink at the Nest bar and enjoy the stunning harbour views, before heading for dinner to Me-Gal restaurant. Enjoy two-courses as part of your stay or add on a third.
And the best thing about the whole experience, while it doesn't come cheap, every stay contributes essential funding to Taronga Conservation Society Australia.
