...world famous for its harbour views & animal exhibits
The constantly evolving Taronga Park Zoo overlooking the harbour from Mosman has a wide variety of animals, many native to Australia. Ferries leave Warf 2 at Circular Quay and stop at the Zoos' harbour entrance. However the Zoo is set on a steep hill, so if you don't want to be continually walking up hill, it is recommended you catch a bus from Circular Quay to the front entrance, and take a ferry home. During the summer months night visits are organised so you can view the nocturnal animals.
