The Wildlife Retreat at Taronga is a moderately luxurious eco-retreat located within Taronga Zoo, with views of Sydney Harbour. The Retreat provides beautiful accommodation in a tranquil forest environment, complete with koalas, echidnas, and platypus. Guided wildlife tours, dinner, and breakfast are included in the Retreat package, as well as complimentary Zoo admission.
We felt properly cared for from the time we arrived at check-in until the time we left. The accommodation was quite comfortable and had a fantastic view of the harbor and cityscape. The restaurant was lovely, the food was wonderful, and the service was attentive to every detail of our meal. Dinner and breakfast were served at the there, which has floor-to-ceiling windows with breathtaking views!
The morning orchestra of animal sounds was a beautiful way to wake up, with koalas right outside our room window. Afternoon drinks overlooking the waterfront as the sun set were followed by a small intimate tour of Australian wildlife with a skilled and passionate tour leader. The next day, a trip to the zoo was the ideal way to round up our vacation.
Stay at the Wildlife Retreat or Roar & Snore if you want to do yourself a favor. We stayed at the Wildlife Retreat, and what a treat it was, with the best location in Sydney, pleasant personnel, amazing amenities, and fantastic rooms.
