22 Incredible Photos Of Memorable Moments At Sydney’s 100-Year-Old Zoo


On October 15, 2016, Australia’s Taronga Zoo marked an important milestone: a full century of caring for animals and sharing them with the world. The Taronga Zoo (whose name comes from one of Australia's Aboriginal languages and means 'beautiful view') had humble beginnings and was first located in Moore Park. However, in 1916, it acquired fifty-one acres of land and moved to Mosman, where it was renamed 'The Taronga Zoo.' A novelty in its early years, Taronga has earned a name as one of the world’s best zoos and is home to more than 4,000 animals. Here are twenty-two photos that capture some of the most memorable moments in the history of Sydney's Taronga Zoo.
