Koala Park Sanctuary doesn’t just have koalas, it also includes animals such as Red & Grey Kangaroos, Dingoes, Wombats, Echidnas, Emus, many Wallaby species and a large collection of Australian Native Birds. Koala Park was created in the 1920’s and officially opened in October of 1930 by the founder Noel Burnet. He became alarmed at the high numbers of koalas shot for the large export fur trade. He feared that if such harsh treatment was allowed to continue, this loveable and unique animal would disappear from the face of the earth forever. From that time on he spent his whole life fighting to protect, research and create a safe environment in which they could live and breed naturally.

Zensara was inspired by an exotic fusion of French and Oriental influences. The French influence is reflected in the design of the reception area, in the pampering, indulgent aspect, and in the exquisite aromas. The Oriental influence is apparent in the serenity of the relaxation areas, as well as in treatments such as shiatsu and warm stone massage.
Time permitting following treatments, we will encourage you to relax in one of our Oriental-inspired areas and transition back to reality gently. Sometimes this quiet contemplative time can be as beneficial as the treatment itself as you connect with your own essence, gazing at our bamboo garden outside, or sharing a cosy nook with a buddha while sipping an exotic tea.
The meaning of Zensara is derived from three Japanese kanji characters, which combine to mean discovering your true purpose or your spiritual path, and hopefully you will experience the essence of Zensara on your visit.
Nature has been the inspiration for our spa and our own Zensara aromatherapy range of products is intended to bring you closer to nature, delighting your senses with products containing extracts from flowers, fruits, herbs, wood and spices.
It is our mission to sprinkle magic in the lives of our clients – creating moments you will always remember. We hope too that you will leave with a sense of serenity, having nurtured your body and nourished your soul!

The Hayden Orpheum at Cremorne began life as The Orpheum on October 3, 1935.
It was, at the time, a much grander movie theatre than most suburban movie houses, and for many years made the clumsily-worded boast of being “Sydney’s only suburban city movie theatre”. The justification for this claim was that it was built as a theatre, and could screen films or live cast musicals for its 1735 seats, over two levels.
Backstage there were dressing rooms, an orchestra pit, and a functioning fly-tower to store and ‘fly’ scenery. It was a proper ‘legit’ stage and played host to the Australian ballet etc.
The theatre remained intact, albeit very run down, until it was bought by commercial property developers. Despite the protests of some theatre supporters, it was savagely ripped apart, and a second-rate shopping arcade and a health gymnasium installed. A concrete slab was installed horizontally, and the only part of the theatre that remained above it was the decaying art deco ceiling and parts of the proscenium. It was virtually inaccessible to all - apart from the pigeons who made it their home.

The people who brought us the genteel sophistication of the original QVB icon have are behind this second Tea Room in another historic location. This edition has its home in the stunning sandstone setting of the Gunners' Barracks - a picturesque building dating back to 1873 and surrounded by tranquil gardens and bushland. Traditional silver-serviced afternoon tea gets a big swig of brash Sydney style with dazzling views of Rose Bay and Camp Cove. North shore socialites now have a new place to do lunch, and Mosman matrons will be thrilled that they can enjoy the decadent teas for which the Tea Room is known, without crossing the Bridge. A sparkling (or Champagne, if you please) afternoon tea will prove a popular choice in such luxurious surrounds, and away from the hustle and bustle of the CBD it's easy to laze away an afternoon gazing out over the water.
