Symbio Wildlife Park is a family owned and operated zoo which is located on the Southern outskirts of Sydney in the the suburb of Helensburgh. Conveniently positioned on the top of the Illawarra escarpment, we are just minutes away from Stanwell Park Beach, the world renowned Royal National Park, Sea Cliff Bridge and also Bald Hill Lookout where you can take in majestic 180 degree views of the pacific ocean.
Nestled on 16 picturesque acres of manicured gardens, Symbio is home to all your Australian animal favourites as well as a large range of amazing exotic animals, which include cheetahs, ring-tailed lemurs, red pandas, meerkats, small monkeys and many more.
Symbio started in 1975 as a small wildlife park and has now grown to become a multi-award winning and internationally publicised zoo, famous for getting our visitors closer than ever before to amazing animals.
Visitors to Symbio can get up close and personal to all the Australian animal favourites, such as cuddle up to koala for that once in a lifetime iconic Aussie selfie, roll around on the grass as you feed, pat and interact with our large mob of kangaroos and if that is still not enough and you want to get even closer, you can choose to go one step further and have one of our exclusive behind the scenes experiences with either the Australian or exotic animals.
These behind scenes experiences can be with the red pandas, ring tailed lemurs, meerkats, monkeys, or you can have an Aussie or Exotic Zoom experience, where you combine multiple experiences in one for the ultimate animal adventure.
For those of you who love farmyard animals, the Symbio Farmyard precinct is the place to go where you can feed and pat goats and sheep, meet the cutest guinea pigs and see chickens and ducks.
Each and every day you will be amazed with the many interactive daily presentations, have the opportunity to have a happy snap with the koalas, alligators and snakes and interact with a variety of animals through live roving.
Facilities at the park include undercover shelters, picnic areas, large playground with large shady trees surrounding, Splash Park to cool down in the hot Summer months and kiosk sells hot food, snacks, refreshments, ice creams and essentials like sunscreen.
