Sydney Harbour resounding with lions' roars? Yes, really. Taronga Zoo, tel: (61-2) 9969 2777, lies on the leafy north shore. Along with thousands of exotic and native Australian animals, it comes with some dress-circle water and skyline views, and draws more than a million visitors a year. An adult ZooPass, including the ferry fare from Circular Quay, is $45; die-hards can sleep over in a luxury safari tent with after-hours adventures for $225.
