AFTER HOURS

PRIVATE DINING EXPERIENCE


PRIVATE DINING

A truly memorable after hours experience

Dine in the heart of the Australian Outback surrounded by our kangaroos and wallabies, all without leaving Sydney’s CBD.

Begin your evening with an after-hours guided tour of WILD LIFE Sydney Zoo, where a passionate and knowledgeable animal keeper will be able to answer all of your questions about the animals that call Australia home. You will then head into our Kangaroo Walkabout exhibit, where you will meet our friendly kangaroos Dot & Matilda.

Finally, as the sunsets, you’ll head inside again to enjoy an intimate dinner for two from our kangaroo viewing area. After dinner, you will continue your journey to our Koala Rooftop, where dessert will be served and you will even get the chance to visit our koalas, as your guide takes you inside their enclosure, for an up-close encounter.

Private Dining at WILD LIFE Sydney Zoo will be a truly memorable after-hours experience you will never forget!
