When it comes to offering up a unique experience gift idea, it doesn’t get much better than an annual pass to the zoo. It doesn’t matter how many times you take kids to see the animals, they can’t seem to get enough of them! It’s the perfect gift that will keep on giving all year round – and such great value for money too. A Sydney Zoo gift experience is the perfect present.

If you haven’t yet headed along to check out Sydney Zoo, here’s exactly what you can find and how to plan a fun-filled day here.

A Day at The Zoo

Naturally, the most important thing about any zoo is the animals that you will discover there, and Sydney Zoo doesn’t disappoint. They have all the favourites, from elephants through to giraffes, along with the only rhinoceros in Australia! There’s five distinct areas for you to check out with the kids.

The enclosures are nice and easy to see, with plenty of space along them, so you won’t have to fight for viewing space. Discover different types of primates, how they differ from each other, and how unique they really are. Kids will love feasting their eyes on the Capybara, the largest rodent that looks just like a big guinea pig!

You will find:

  • Scared Baboon
  • Tuyfted Capuchin
  • Capybara
  • Chimpanzee

South East Asia


The elephants are a staple favourite at any zoo, because they are so easy to see and fun to watch. You will also find tigers in this section (a thrill for all) and learn all about them in the process.

You will find:

  • Orangutan
  • Asian Small-Clawed Otter
  • Red Panda
  • Asian Elephant
  • Sumatran Tiger

Reptile House

The perfect spot to escape the heat on a hot day, this is a nice and big Reptile House that winds right around (you don’t know when it’s going to end!). Kids will love spotting everything from frogs to snakes, insects, bats, mice and so much more. It’s an area that keeps on giving.



Got a thing for Australian animals? You can get up nice and close to them in this section. The kangaroos roam freely (although you have to stay off the grass) and if you look around you will spot them jumping, along with wallabies. 

Koalas sit up in their trees directly above you, so close for you to check them out. There’s even a nice, big wombat. Don’t worry, if he’s not outside, you’ll find him nice and snug in the Reptile House.

You will find:

  • Wombat
  • Dingo
  • Emu
  • Koala
  • Tasmanian Devil
  • Kangaroo

This isn’t just any old Aquarium. It’s full of cod, sharks, eels, barramundi and more. You will spot Nemo floating around these waters too, but it isn’t the bright, colorful type of aquarium you’re likely used to.

You will find:

  • Barramundi
  • Bull Shark
  • Little Penguin
  • Murray Cod



One of the most unique spaces you will find, the boardwalk into the Asian section takes you over camels, zebras, lions, hyenas, a rhino and more. You’ll want to look out both sides and take your time to see all the animals!With seating down the middle, it’s the perfect pitstop to fill up little tummies with an amazing view around you.

You will find:

  • Cheetah
  • Giraffe
  • Spotted hyena
  • African Lion
  • Meerket
  • Ostrich
  • African Painted Dog
  • Plains Zebra
  • White rhinoceros
