Taronga Zoo Sydney

We took the ferry to the Taronga Zoo--a 12-minutes ride from the city. From the Zoo, visitors can enjoy breathtaking views of Sydney with its Harbour in the foreground.

There are many Australian animals to observe, such as a Tree-Kangaroo and the endangered Tasmanian Devil

One of the popular attractions is the bird show: Various kites fly just a few feet above the heads of the spectators. There are coin-snatching Galahs that even return the coins. The largest bird is an Andean Condor whose three-metre wingspan is frightening when it glides above the audience.

There are also Emus and many different plants and spiders everywhere.
