Zoo Walk 2020

Now in its 27th year, join the Sisters as they visit the world renowned Taronga Park Zoo at Mosman for their Annual Zoo Walk.
Start your day by joining the Sisters at Wharf 2, Circular Quay, to catch the ferry across to the zoo, and then take the cable-car or bus up to the top gate.

Date: Thursday 27th February 2020
Meeting Point:  Adjacent to Wharf 2, Circular Quay
Wharf Assembly Time: 9:00 am to catch the 9:20 Ferry (Ferries don’t wait!)

Alternatively you can make your own way there and meet us inside the main gate.
Bradleys Head Road Mosman by 9:45 for a 10:00am start.
Parking is available at Taronga Zoo car park
The all-day parking rate is $18 approx. Please note the maimum height of the carpark is 2.1.

Once Inside we will be greeted by Zoo Guides and Zoo Keepers and subject to the availability of suitable animals there is likely to be some Australian fauna that can be gently petted (under supervision, of course), or observed in the arms of their keepers.

The Sisters’ Walk around the zoo is accompanied by the knowledgeable Zoo Guides, and we will focus on visiting the Australian contingent … and along the way the Sisters will be able to share with the party, some of the recipes and cooking techniques that were used in the 19th Century … in fact, some of the recipes that are still in vogue today. The Sisters may well also take the opportunity to read selected poems to the animals for their edification (though they never seem to take heed!).

The escorted walk will conclude at the celebrated Bird Show at 12 noon or an alternative special event such as Dingo feeding time!
Thereafter, participants are invited to join the Sisters for luncheon, and/or to explore other parts of the zoo at their leisure.
Wear sensible shoes, sun screen, a hat and of course be prepared for the weather.

Date: Thursday 27th February 2020
Meeting Point:  Adjacent to Wharf 2, Circular Quay
Wharf Assembly Time: 9:00 am to catch the 9:20 Ferry (Ferries don’t wait!)
