I visited Taronga Zoo at night during Vivid Sydney with a friend. It was an amazing experience to visit the zoo at night. Too bad it was raining heavily when I visited. Family with young children would have a great time.

I would say to go to the zoo but dont pay extra for the "wild Australian experience" as it is way too expensive for what you get. If your main thing is to see the koala just pay the $25 for the koala experience and...More

With a variety of outdoor attractions, the
sophisticated harbour suburb of Mosman has something
for everyone. Shoppers can stroll Military Road for
its unique offering of antiques, designer labels, and
hip restaurants and cafes. Nature lovers can take in
spectacular bushwalks like the Taronga to Balmoral
walk, while families can enjoy snorkeling in the
sheltered beaches of Balmoral Beach or scuba diving at
