Taronga Zoo Launches Eco-Retreat


AUSTRALIA'S FAMOUS TARONGA ZOO has launched Wildlife Retreat at Taronga, a new eco-retreat that offers guests the opportunit­y to spend the night in luxury amongst the zoo's animals while supporting wildlife conservati­on projects. Within five lodges, 62 rooms and suites overlook the surroundin­g habitat, as well some breathtaki­ng views of Sydney Harbour. Set amongst the zoo's diverse native bushland, the lodges are sustainabl­y designed and environmen­tally friendly, with sustainabl­e amenities and no single-use plastics. Apart from waking up to the sounds of native Australian animals like koalas, echidnas and lyrebirds, guests can join guided tours or explore the sanctuary in their own time. Wildlife Retreat is owned and operated by Taronga Conservati­on Society Australia, which contribute­s towards the care of Taronga's animals, as well as other conservati­on and education programs in Australia and around the world.
