Your online membership account

We have launched a new online membership system, which will be the new hub to manage all elements of your membership online!

You'll be able to:

  • View the details of your membership group
  • Quickly register a visit to Taronga Zoo Sydney or Taronga Western Plains Zoo Dubbo
  • Renew your membership in just a few clicks

More exciting features coming soon!

If you are a current or lapsed member, but have not yet accessed this system, you’ll first need to create your account to manage your existing membership. This can only be done by your group’s primary member, which is the person who receives email communications about your membership. They’ll need their member number (which can be found on your membership card, or in the top right corner of emails), and the email address you provided on signup.

While we transition to the new online membership system, you can still use the previous forms to register your visit to our Zoos.

Register to visit Taronga Zoo Sydney using the previous online form.

Register to visit Taronga Western Plains Zoo Dubbo using the previous online form.
