Today’s opening of the Lemur Forest Adventure at Taronga Zoo promises to boost visitor numbers to this world-renowned harbourside attraction, according to peak national industry body Tourism & Transport Forum (TTF).
TTF Chief Executive Ken Morrison said this is one of Taronga Zoo’s most exciting and interactive exhibits.
“The new Lemur Forest Adventure will allow visitors to get up close to the highly social ring-tailed lemurs, thanks to the exhibit’s walk-through design,” said Mr Morrison.
“This will provide a truly unique experience for visitors especially as we move into the warmer months when these friendly creatures are most active.
“Congratulations to Taronga Zoo for their innovation and commitment to providing a world-class visitor experience at one of Sydney’s most iconic attractions.”
Mr Morrison said the new Lemur Forest Adventure exhibit gives visitors even more reason to include a visit to the zoo on their Sydney itinerary.
“Taronga Zoo is already one of Sydney’s most popular attractions and this new exhibit makes it even more compelling,” Mr Morrison said.
“Investment in tourism infrastructure is critical to increasing visitor spending in Sydney and with more to see and do in and around Sydney, visitors are more likely to stay longer and spend more.
“Sydney’s natural wonders, like the stunning harbour and beaches, are significant drawcards for visitors but continuing investment in new tourism product is critical to boosting visitor expenditure.
“This is great news for the 160,000 people who are directly employed in tourism in New South Wales and the related businesses who all benefit from a thriving visitor economy.”
