We are very happy with the experience on Headout

Experience a wild encounter at Taronga Zoo!

With over 350 different species, Taronga Zoo boasts remarkable diversity. Nestled on the shores of Sydney Harbor, you’ll be surprised to discover the wild that thrives here. Taronga cares for many animals that are threatened, like the smallest surviving subspecies of Sumatran Tigers, a rare species of Sun Bears, and Regent Honeyeaters with their prettily patterned breasts. Apart from these, you will also find our closest living relatives, the Chimpanzees, cute and cuddly meerkats, giant Asian Elephants, Giraffes, wallabies, wombats, echidnas, and reptiles.

Go Whale Watching!

Combine your experience with a whale-watching cruise that will see you out at sea, admiring these gentle and curious beasts as they put on a show for you. With Humpback sightings increasing over the years, this is the chance to witness a natural spectacle that is bound to leave a feel-good mark in your memory.

You will set sail through the entrance of Sydney Harbour on an ocean-going catamaran with open-air and all-weather lounge viewing. In addition to the Humpbacks and Orcas, you may also spot the Blue Whale, Fin Whale, Sperm Whale, False Killer Whale, Minke Whale, Pygmy Right, and Southern Right Whales. Gather a deeper understanding of these wild creatures with expert commentary provided onboard by marine specialists with a passion for whales.
