I had to make a decision between Taronga Zoo or Bondi Beach and it's quite obvious what I picked. Some of the locals raved about the zoo, so I wanted to see for myself what the hype was about. Yang-Yi-Goh of Sharp Magazine accompanied me on this little zoo adventure. It was literally a journey because the only way to get to the zoo is by boat. Upon arrival, the first thing I noticed was the gondola. Normally, I associate a gondola with skiing so it was an unexpected surprise at the zoo. We spend half the day looking at animals then realized the zoo is actually a depressing place. Kinda like jail for animals, but the worst part is having people stare and photograph you all day. Poor animals! But other then that random thought, Taronga Zoo is a great spot to visit. I love Sydney.
