The city is further surrounded by national parks with adventurous nativeenvironments (Council, 2000).Taronga Zoo is one of the magnificent sites situated in the Mosman neighborhood ofSydney on the hillside of the harbor. The Taronga Zoo is home to indigenous creatures ofAustralia and from other parts of the world. The Roar and Snore adventure of the Zoo allowsthe visitors to hold back for the whole night catch a glimpse of the nocturnal animals, and theNura Diya tour, who offer additional information on the life of the Aboriginal Peoples(Woods, 2002). Traffic is not an issue to the Zoo since the ferry ride directly leads to the Zoo.Also, it is accessible by car or bus after which the short gondola ride leads to the entrance ofthe Zoo.According to Frawley (2009), the other fascinating scene is the Sydney BotanicGardens which are uncommon because they offer a parade of the natural floral scene and atthe same time are proximal to the city center and the beautiful view and landmarks of SydneyHarbour. The Botanic Gardens are strategically located to offer relief from the busy townand with a panoramic view of the activities at the harbor. The trees and plants of the gardenare named and each species described in detail.
