Sydney Wildlife World

Attached to the Sydney Aquarium at Darling Harbour, the new fauna and flora attraction features a huge variety of native Australian plant and animal species in nine different habitats. A walkway snakes through the enclosures, and the development comprises three floors of exhibits, with the upper level open to the sky under a mesh roof. Visitors can experience a tropical rainforest, the red centre, and get close to animals like the koala, wallabies and over 6,000 other animals. The 'zoo' also focuses on conservation and education of native flora and fauna.
