Wildlife adventure
If you love animals, especially if you're new to Australia, this is a perfect place to stay. The zoo is beautiful and the behind the scene tours were great. The view from the rooms are great. We had a koala bear, named Thunder, outside our window and then kangaroos on our second stay.

A GEM in Sydney!
Magical! I wish I had booked a longer stay. The Zoo is beautiful, and the Retreat could not be nicer. Understated elegance, amazing views, and lovely staff. The Sanctuary tour is perfect. Guide Ryan was great. Even the music in the lobby is good! The Dhurak the Koala hanging at my room was a bonus! I'll be back.

Truly a unique experience watching a koala from our room. The wildlife walk was fun and informative. The dining room has the most spectacular view of Sydney. Definitely the highlight of our trip to Australia.

NSW Best Kept Secret
NSW best kept secret. Travelled with my wife and friends and I have to say that we all had an excellent time. We arrived well before book in time to look around the zoo and the staff at the retreat couldn’t have been more friendlier or helpful. We left our bags with them and it was a very pleasant surprise when we finally got to our rooms that our bags had been placed into the cupboard for us. We chose the rooms where you can view various animals from your windows and it was lovely to observe Koalas, echidnas and other animals throughout our stay. Three course dinner at Mei Gal was top shelf along with the two private tours we had and were all included in the cost of the room for the evening along with breakfast. This is one overnighter which should be high on the priority of Tourism NSW and Australia. Could not recommend this location more highly.
