A giraffe eats dinner whilst overlooking the Sydney skyline.

Seeing a giraffe is always an awesome experience. Add the Sydney skyline to that and there really isn’t many better sights anywhere.

This was my view when I took the ferry from Circular Quay to Taronga Zoo. The ferry ride is always a fun one, the journey a very short one.


Getting up to the zoo is great. A cable car ride can be taken (one way or a return journey) with some even greater views high above the ground below.


This was a very rushed and fairly last minute look around the zoo, so apologies for the lack of content this time around. If I am back here again I will be sure to take much more time. I always prefer to see animals in the wild however, and this is my aim. Hopefully I find some great photo opportunities in the next twelve months with this in mind!

      1. Ah! I’m not too far, from Newcastle, UK. Everyone here thinks I’m Irish!! I’m guessing you did farm work to extend a visa?

      2. Ahh nice! Haha when I was out there I noticed that so many Aussies were terrible with accents… they all thought that I was Australian and my American friend was Irish!

        Yeah I did my farm work over on Kangaroo Island, SA. How about you, what are your plans?! ๐Ÿ™‚

      3. Haha what?! Everyone thinks I’m Irish… They all thought you were Australian?! That’s crazy! I’ve always been perceived as Irish outside of Europe… So this seems pretty normal.
        I don’t have plans just yet but I do want to extend my visa… I may have to head to Kangaroo Island!
