Opened in 2006 and located in Darling Harbour next door to the Sydney Aquarium, Sydney Wildlife World is a small zoo specialized in Australian animals. While is not as comprehensive as Taronga Zoo, is closer to the City Center and as a tourist you would be probably more interested to meet the Australian animals rather than other animals and this is what Sydney Wildlife World is offering.
