The Wildlife Retreat at Taronga in Sydney has introduced a new staycation Family Escape Package. Starting at $690 per night for two adults and two children, it includes an overnight stay in interconnecting rooms, an after dark wildlife tour to see nocturnal residents, a-la-carte breakfast and two-day zoo access to explore the 28ha harbourside zoo. Guests will also take part in an afternoon tour of The Sanctuary – an Australian habitat created especially for retreat guests that brings you up close to wallabies, bettongs, short-beaked echidnas, and koalas.

Owned and operated by Taronga Conservation Society Australia, the retreat opened in 2019 and has 62 rooms in five environmentally sensitive and sustainably designed lodges. Taronga Conservation Society Australia CEO Cameron Kerr said the new package offers the zoo a way to engage the next generation and support its work as a not-for-profit organisation. The package is available to book every day of the school holidays and Thursday to Saturday nights during the school term.
