Friday Weekend Escape to Taronga Zoo in Sydney, Australia

This weekend we’re returning to my beautiful hometown of Sydney, Australia. Last week we caught the Manly Ferry to the pretty seaside suburb of Manly, the setting for my new contemporary inspirational romance. Her Tycoon Hero is the first book in in my Sydney series. Today we’re visiting Taronga Zoo, the perfect location for a fun romantic date.

The ferry is a lovely way to travel from the city to Taronga Zoo, located on the waterfront in the northern Sydney suburb of Mosman.

It’s very relaxing to sit back on the ferry, enjoying the sunshine and beautiful scenery.

The lower entrance to Taronga Zoo is opposite the wharf. The zoo is on the side of a hill and provides stunning views of Sydney Harbour and the city skyline.

I love wandering around the 28 hectare zoo and seeing the wide range of animals. The walking is great exercise, too. Or, you can jump on the miniature train and Sky Safari to avoid negotiating the steep terrain by foot.

The African Safari section of the zoo is a definite favourite. I’ve always loved visiting the koalas and watching them play in the gum trees.

Her Tycoon Hero cover

Cassie Beaumont believes in second chances.

Set on proving to everyone that she’s no longer a party girl, Cassie is focused on her career as an event planner. But her dad’s top executive, Ryan Mitchell, proves to be a handsome distraction. Especially when someone from Cassie’s wild past tries to get her tangled in the life she’s worked hard to escape.

Ryan is taken with his boss’s beautiful daughter. But having been fooled by a brother who ran in her same circles, he is slow to trust. When Cassie’s newfound faith works its way into his heart, Ryan soon finds he wants to claim both her faith—and Cassie—as his own.
