Nothing is better than a day out at Taronga Zoo, especially during these Easter school holidays when the zoo is bursting with cutey patootie baby bundles of fur and celebrating the arrival of King Nyani, the world’s largest gorilla bronze statue.

There are red panda twins, five mischievous lion cubs and six, yes SIX, Squirrel Monkeys born to different mothers and all clinging enthusiastically to mum’s back.

Apart from the cuteness overload, get your photo taken with King Nyani, stretching more than 9 m and crafted by international artists Gillie and Marc, inspired after a trip to Uganda where they met a family of critically endangered mountain gorillas.

Take a load off and relax on The Zoo Friends Lawn for some music, food and fun including kids’ DJ Kit Kat, face painting, games and Bilby encounters, or enjoy the view from above on Sydney’s only cable car, the Sky Safari.

Remember, Taronga is not-for-profit, every dollar you spend supports the zoo’s vital conservation efforts.
