Taronga Zoo in Sydney is opening up a Wildlife Retreat that enables guests to experience an eco-luxe overnight stay amongst some of Australia’s unique wildlife. This incredible and once in a lifetime opportunity supports the conservation projects, which are both beneficial to the animals and the environment.
Taronga Zoo sits on some amazing real estate in the north of Sydney and boasts amazing views of Sydney’s Harbour. The Wildlife Retreat offers 62 extraordinary rooms for guests to choose from, either submerging in with the animals or having beautiful sunset views.
All guests also get given the opportunity for a guided tour following their night stay or they are able to just simply wander around the zoo at their own leisure.
The design aspect of the retreat has undergone serious consideration in order to develop five environmentally-sensitive and sustainably designed lodges which have been built into the native bushland.
Each retreat ‘experience package’ gives guests a dinner at Me-Gal restaurant. Me-Gal provides delicious culinary delights that are full of fresh and native ingredients which are sourced locally. The menu will be seasonally-modified but will definitely satisfy the senses. Guests also receive a buffet breakfast the following morning after the stay.
The Suites available include the Bushland Room, this suite has beautiful views overlooking iconic Australian bushland, with wild birds amongst these trees and native flora. These rooms are priced from $790 per night for two adults.
The Animal View Room is another suite that displays a lush habitat where iconic Australian animals roam, climb and perch among the branches right outside the window. This Wildlife suite is priced from $821 per night, based on two adults.
Another suite available is the Harbour View Room which provides picturesque views extending over Taronga Zoo and out across the harbour, Sydney Opera House and Harbour Bridge. These rooms are priced from $852 per night, again for two adults.
Finally, the last room available are the Treetop Suites, which feature panoramic harbour views and an open-plan ensuite with a deep, round, freestanding bathtub. These stunning suites cost $997 per night and are perfect for a romantic getaway.
