Ellaslist Opinion: WILD LIFE Sydney Zoo is an excellent place to introduce children to Australian wildlife and fauna as it houses over 1,000 native animals, insects and reptiles, yet is set in a very contained space and is so easily accessed from the city. Some young children (and a few mums!) may be little unnerved by the giant croc and creepy cassowary but the wallabies are super cute. This is one of our favourite rainy day activities and it is very easy to spend a couple of very pleasant hours here! There’s plenty of room for active kids to race around too. Entry prices are steep but there are often internet deals for cheap tickets and Annual Passes and Combination Tickets also bring the cost down significantly.

General Admission: Adult from $36.80 Child (3+) from $27.20. Merlin Annual Pass (includes 10 attractions in Australia and New Zealand) Adult/Child from $80.00/$65.00
