Sydney should be proud of Taronga Zoo. The zoo is situated on a steep hillside overlooking the harbour, and the best way to get there is by ferry, of course. We were then introduced to the zoo by a ski-lift ride to the top of the hill where the tour down past the animals begins.
Max and Jem bumped into a koala and a kangaroo at the entrance. Since Jem has enjoyed cuddling koalas, we decided it was his turn to be the cuddlee.
We have been a little disappointed to have not seen any zebras in the wild during our time in Australia, but at least we finally got to see some in the zoo. Jem was over the moon.
Another good thing about Taronga ? Not even a hint of Steve Irwin.
