At the Taronga Zoo in Sydney

(this is a duplicate post - something went wrong with the first one such that it missed friend's feeds)
The best way to get to the Taronga Zoo in Sydney from our hotel was to walk a few blocks and take the ferry (you buy a combination ferry/zoo-admission ticket). Upon arrival at the dock you can take a funicular up to the zoo and then have a great time wandering around.

I have always like zoos, but after our safaris in Tanzania and Kenya where you'd see thousands of animals like zebras it seemed like it might be a let down so we hadn't gone to a zoo for a few years. I'm glad we went; it was great. It has a great layout with various trails through sections of the zoo and a wide array of animals from all over the world. One of trails was a mini-zip line.
