twilight at taronga

Twilight at Taronga, a series of summer evening open-air shows on the intimate, fully-licensed concert lawns of iconic Taronga Zoo in Sydney is almost upon us and, if you’ve been snoozing with regard to buying tickets, prepare to be losing. Yup, tickets are selling FAST, so if you haven’t snagged yours yet, hurry the hell up.

As a major celebration of Taronga Zoo’s centennial year, the stunning vantage point of Twilight’s harbour-side amphitheatre will play host to music lovers each weekend from Thursday 28 January through Saturday 12 March 2016.

Amazingly, there are still tickets left for the opening night when Courtney Barnett will grace the stage. You can still get tix to Josh Pyke, Björn Again, Violent Femmes, C.W. Stoneking, legendary South African a cappella singing group Ladysmith Black Mambazo, and a few others. But some are selling quickly. Check the fully updated listing below.

All Twilight at Taronga tickets include free return ferry from Circular Quay from 5pm; bus transfer from Taronga wharf to Zoo entrance; and post-show buses to Spit Junction and Mosman. Twilight at Taronga tickets also include half price same day entry to the Zoo.

All proceeds from Twilight at Taronga go toward the Taronga Conservation Society Australia – a not for profit organisation dedicated to wildlife conservation, scientific research and environmental sustainability.
