About the shows

Lights for the Wild

In this beautiful animation, you’ll travel an illuminated path through stories near and far. From the jungles of Sumatra to Australia’s bushland, meet ten unique animal species and their delicate ecosystems.

Super Smalls! GIANT bug show 

LIVE and larger-than life! See spiders and millipedes up close on the big screen, and hear from Taronga’s Bug Keepers about the super-powers of some of Taronga’s smallest and coolest animals.

Wild Squad Adventures

This short film is action-packed! From a fly-over of Sydney Harbour to behind-the-scenes of Taronga Zoo – then a journey around the world to learn about our mission to protect and care for animals.

Reptile Keeper Talk

LIVE in the Theatre! With more than 8000 species on the planet, the reptilian world is filled with the weird and the wonderful. Join Taronga’s Reptile Keepers to hear this story, that began more than 300 million years ago.
