At Taronga Zoo in Sydney, 20 recently-hatched veiled chameleons have stolen the spotlight from other animals, and it’s not hard to see why (which is ironic, what with chameleons being so hard to spot).
Roar and Snore is Sydney’s ultimate sleepover. This is because the overnight accommodation takes place is Australia’s most famous zoo: Taronga Zoo. Instead of sleeping in a luxurious hotel while in Sydney, the zoo offers camp nights in safari-style tents that overlook the Sydney harbour, with views of the Sydney Opera House and Harbour Bridge.
