Modern Family Meets Our Aussie Animal Family

Modern Family Meets Our Aussie Animal Family

The Modern Family cast members' whirlwind trip to Sydney got even wilder over the weekend with a visit to WILD LIFE Sydney Zoo.

Squeezing in some sightseeing in-between filming, Rico Rodriguez (Manny Delgado), Sarah Hyland (Hayley Dunphy) and Nolan Gould (Luke Dunphy) had close encounters with iconic Australian animals, such as koalas, sugar gliders, quokkas, a wombat, lizards, snakes and birds.

Our Aussie animal family didn't fail to impress the stars of the hit TV show. "I'm taking all of the animals home with me," exclaimed Sarah Hyland. "Seriously."

Lea Thompson from the classic film Back to the Future and Zoey Deutch, co-star with Sarah Hyland on the upcoming movie Vampire Academy, also joined the cast on their Australian animal adventure in the heart of the city.

"WILD LIFE Sydney Zoo is so fun and close to everything," said Lea Thompson. "It's a must do if you have just a little time in Sydney."
