Year Opened


Land Size




Wildlife Sydney began in November 2004. It was constructed by Sydney Aquarium Pty Ltd.

Construction was completed during August 2006 at a cost of $52 million. It was originally named Sydney Wild Life World.

In late 2006 the owners of Wild Life Sydney sold their attractions group, known as Sydney Attractions group to Village Roadshow.

During 2009 Wild Life Sydney opened an exhibit called Kakadu Gorge for the fauna of the Northern Territory with the main feature being a saltwater crocodile.

In March 2011 the Village roadshows assets were acquired by the UK based Merlin entertainment. They closed the park temporarily for renovations. As part of this process the park was reduced in size to allow room for the addition of a Madame Tussauds wax works.

The zoo reopened on September 13th 2011. It was at this point that it was renamed to Wild Life Sydney.

2016 saw an exhibit for platypus added to Wild Life Sydney.

In 2020 the zoo added an exhibit for their first goodfellow’s tree kangaroo.
