The construction of the Zoo Wildlife begun in 2004 with Sydney Wildlife World as the original name before it begun its operation in 2006. It is located in the central part of Sydney, an aspect that has made it more popular. For instances, it was awarded the best family focused tourism destination in Australia in 2007. It has a unique design with its public areas air-conditioned and entirely enclosed. The Zoo was expanded in 2011 when its name was changed to the Wildlife Sydney Zoo. The zoo is divided into ten zones which include, Wallaby cliff, Kakadu gorge, which is known as the crocodile inhabitant, Kangaroo walks about, Devi’s den, Night fall, Koala encounter, Daintree rainforest, Gumtree valleys, Outbreak adventures cafe and butterfly tropics as stated by (Weaver, 2014).
Push factors are said to be the internal forces of an institution or organization that increase the demand of the tourist. On the other hand, pull factors are said to be those forces that are related to the tourist destination. They influence the demand by the tourist on a certain destination. Push and pull factors that are observed to increase the tourist demand at Wild life Sydney zoo are like the social psychology of tourist behavior. It is a major pull factor which is likely to come into the ground when it comes to a willing tourist to select wildlife Sydney zoo as his or her destination as reported by (Weaver, 2014). However, the decision-making process is said to be complex and some of the aspect that the potential tourist puts into consideration is the quality of the product offered, financial and economic restrictions. Other factors that were brought about by the social psychology of tourist behavior comprised the relationship between specific motives, effective image, cognitive, age nationality, and the purpose of the visit to Sydney zoo.
Push factors are also attributed to economic consideration, an aspect that makes it different with other factors as asserted by (Lowe, 2017). Wildlife Sydney Zoo is still competitive with other countries within the region. The comparison between travel cost and expenses during the stay is that it depends on the age and the country (origin) of the tourist. Welfare, political neutrality, safe of the old and the young tourist, availability of the public transport, and the traffic congestion attributes to the push and pull factor as reported by (Lowe, 2017). The park at Sydney has ensured standard safe on road. It has also laid more emphasis on ensuring the public transport is available and affordable.
Push factors are the internal forces of an organization that increase the demand of the tourist while pull factors are said to be those forces that are related to the tourist destination. Push and pull factors that are observed to increase the tourist demand at Wild life Sydney zoo are like the social psychology of tourist behavior. They hence influence the demand by the tourist on a certain destination.
