Where can you see live tunes with a stunning view of Sydney Harbour, all while surrounded by adorable animals as well? Twilight at Taronga. Each summer, the after-hours live music series hosts outdoor gigs with an impressive lineup, and 2024 is set to be no different. On the bill: Meg Mac, Ball Park Music, The Whitlams, the returning drag and comedy galas, and more.

Held in Taronga Zoo's natural amphitheatre, this year's batch of shows runs for a month from Friday, February 2–Saturday, March 2, 2024. Also set to take to the stage: John Butler, The Waifs, The Cat Empire, and the Australian Rock Collective featuring members of Spiderbait, Powderfinger, Jet and You Am I.

It isn't a Twilight at Taronga series without a few annual favourites. So, ABBA parody/tribute Bjorn Again will also bust out their tracks again, as will James Morrison, with the latter celebrating tunes from swing to soul. And, the big drag gala will bring together Karen From Finance, Art Simone, Spankie Jackzon, Jojo Zaho and Maxi Shield — while the comedy gala's lineup starts with Celia Pacquola, Ivan Aristeguieta and MC Daniel Connell.

You can BYO a picnic, but there'll also be gourmet hampers available onsite alongside a handful of food trucks. Ticketholders can also purchase discounted same-day entry into the zoo (so you can sneak in a visit to your favourite mammal, bird or reptile beforehand) and, if you want to make a weekend of it, you can add on a night at Taronga's luxe eco-retreat.

As always, all proceeds will go back into Taronga's ongoing conservation work, including its campaign to protect our marine life. So, you can see a gig and feel good about helping the zoo.
