Taronga Zoo, one of Sydney's most iconic destinations, has revealed it is launching a luxury eco-wildlife retreat.

The Wildlife Sanctuary, opened in October 2019, has five lodges, sustainably built in native bush, and comes with 62 rooms and suites.

The stunning location, which offers stunning views of Sydney Harbor, is home to some of Australia's most iconic animals, including koalas, platypus and echidnas.

The architecturally designed facility not only offers a unique experience, but money generated from the retreat will be used to help care for the zoo animals and for conversational work.
