History and culture

In 100 years Taronga has evolved from a location of entertainment to a mature conservation and education hub.

In the spirit of reconciliation, Taronga acknowledges the unique status of Australia’s First Peoples as the original people of this land. We recognise their cultures, histories and ongoing relationship and obligations to the land and waterways.

Building a better zoo

For a zoo to remain relevant, it must grow and evolve. Here at Taronga, we aim to continually improve our animal habitats while striving to enhance our visitors’ experiences.
