Wildlife Retreat at Taronga

Enjoy animal encounters, premium dining with breathtaking views of Sydney Harbour, and falling asleep to the sounds of the zoo.

Experience something that feels a world away from your own backyard and enjoy a night like no other. The Wildlife Retreat at Taronga is an elegant Australian eco-retreat nestled within Taronga Zoo. Featuring 62 rooms in five environmentally sensitive and sustainably designed lodges. Plus a thoughtfully designed Australian wildlife habitat called The Sanctuary that is home to koalas, wallabies, echidnas and other unique Australian species including Potoroos and Bettongs. You’ll experience a different side of the zoo with an afternoon tour, exclusive dining with breathtaking views at Me-Gal on-site restaurant, and you’ll also enjoy an up close encounter with one of Taronga’s cute Koalas.

Taronga Zoo is on the northern side of Sydney Harbour, just 15 minutes from Sydney CBD. You can immerse yourself in the secluded, harbourside bushland setting for a peaceful and rejuvenating experience, connected to nature. Taronga Conservation Society Australia is a not-for-profit organisation, and proceeds from every Wildlife Retreat stay supports Taronga’s ongoing work caring for animals within its two zoos and through conservation programs around the world.
