1. Register for $1.00 entry on your birthday
The cheapest way to enter Taronga Zoo is to go on your birthday! If you go to the Zoo on your birthday (and register for a birthday ticket beforehand) then you will only pay $1.00!
To get the $1.00 birthday ticket you MUST register online first!
So make sure to register here.
On the day you visit you will need to bring proof of your date of birth as well as valid ID.

A neat way to double up on the discount is to go on your birthday and then do one of the following discounts for the rest of your cohort.
2. Buy tickets online for a 10 or 20% discount
One of the easiest ways to get Taronga Zoo discount tickets is to buy your tickets online via the Taronga Zoo website before you go.

3. Buy an Annual Pass online
If you think you’ll be going to the zoo a fair bit then you might want to consider an annual pass. At $198.00 for two adults and two kids the passes are expensive, but if you live near the zoo or have kids who really love it then it might be worth it!
You can also use the Annual Pass to get free entry to reciprocal zoos including Western Plains Zoo, Adelaide, Melbourne and Perth Zoos (children may be charged at Melbourne and Perth Zoo).
4. Buy tickets through NRMA
NRMA offer discounted Taronga Zoo tickets to NRMA Blue Members.
The tickets are slightly cheaper than buying the tickets online through the Taronga Zoo website.
They also offer discounted to a heap of other activities, so check out their website for lots of great offers.
5. Buy tickets through RACQ
RACQ also offer Members discounted Taronga Zoo tickets.
The discounts are not as good as NRMA offer, but are just slightly better than buying the passes direct through the Taronga Zoo website.
6. Entertainment Book
The Sydney Entertainment Book actually offers the best individual ticket discount. You will however need to purchase the book at a cost of $70.00.
If you have an Entertainment Book then you can get 25% off tickets for up to four people. This is a once only use voucher.
