Opened in 1884, the Taronga Zoo is the first public zoo in New South Wales. The Zoo has gone through much renovation and redevelopment featuring updated exhibits and an Asian Rainforest, which provides a unique insight into the majesty and wonder of the jungle homes of an amazing array of rare Asian wildlife including Asian Elephants, Silvery Gibbons, Francoise Langurs, Asian Turtles, and Fishing Cats. The Taronga Zoo is continually building and updating its cultural and educational displays and precincts in order to provide the ultimate in family fun. Be sure to check out the free animal presentations and shows throughout the day.
The fact that taronga have held elephants in quarantine overseas without the appropriate permission to import them is one of the cruelest things I have heard of. The elephant languishes in quarantine while the zoo promotes itself as friendly to animals... bulls..t
