Taronga Zoo has taken the plunge into Sydney's competitive luxury accommodation market with its epic 62-room Wildlife Retreat, opened in 2019. And we've already listed it as one of the best hotels in Sydney.

This complex of modern, timber-clad lodges encircling a private bushland garden full of native fauna combines sustainable design with high end amenities. Thanks to these guys, you don't have to go far to see nature in all its glory.

Carved into the natural landscape of the zoo, each room allows you to overlook both the bushland and sweeping views over Sydney Harbour. The location is unrivalled. Jut open your door to see koalas in nearby trees, wombats wandering by and platypuses swimming in their thoughtfully designed habitats within the Taronga Zoo. It's uniquely Australian.

The Wildlife Retreat at Taronga includes a range of experiences and inclusions from a two-day entry into the Zoo, complimentary car parking, meals at their award-winning Me-Gal restaurant (you might want to go vegetarian after living alongside all these friendly Aussie critters) and a guided tour of The Sanctuary.
