Sydney Wildlife World Jul 25, 2011
I rated Wildlife World as expensive for what you get. Basically, it's a building containing many glass containers of some of Australia's most venomous spiders, snakes, and other species.

They also have a few kangaroos, wallabies, koala bears, and other exotics. There's also Rex the saltwater crocodile coming in at about 5 meters long.

The cost of admission is $35 AUD, but I paid $50 to get a pass for both this and the aquarium. Overall, I think that I would have been better off going to just the aquarium. Quite frankly, this just wasn't that impressive. I spent about 45 minutes going through the three floors and, by far, the most interesting thing, IMHO, was Rex.

Wildlife World at Darling Harbour Aug 03, 2009
Martin and I had also marked this place as something we wanted to see, so after lunch, we got inside Wildlife World.

The price for a single adult ticket is quite expensive, costing 35 australian dollars (around 25 euros or 30 us dollars). But since we both had bought a Discovery Pass, the price was less expensive.

The Wildlife World itself is located in Darling Harbour, with the Aquarium next to it. The place houses over 130 species of australian animals in various habitats.

There are 9 different areas, beginning with the Flutterby (the butterflies can roam here freely), followed by the Spineless Wonders: home to the various creepy crawlers like spiders, scorpions and bugs.

Then there is the Scailes & Tails, home to reptiles and snakes, followed by the Flight Canyon to level one.

On level one is the After Dark, home of the nocturnal animals, followed by the Bird Walkthrough, home to beautiful coloured birds live. On level two, the Rooftop Encounters, is home to some koalas.

Last part are the Dreamtime Cave, with the Red Heart across from it: home to more kangaroos, The Lush Canopy (the rainforest), followed by the Wallaby Cliffs, home to wallabies and wombats. Outside you can see more koalas at the Gum Tree Gully.

Despite the high price, I still recommend the place, as you can spend quite a long time there to see all the fish and other marine life.
