Nia Sioux meets our Koalas and some fans too!

Dance Mom’s Star Nia Sioux Visited WILD LIFE Sydney Zoo for a Fan Meet and Greet

Earlier this month, we were ‘seeing stars’ thanks to a very special visit from reality TV stars Nia Sioux and her mother, Dr. Holly Fraiser! Nia and Holly danced their way to stardom as part of American hit reality show, Dance Moms. Nia, who currently stars on Bold and the Beautiful has a legion of fans and decided to hold an exclusive meet and greet event with her them on Koala Rooftop.

Surrounded by our gorgeous Koalas, Nia met her fans as part of the after-hours event, of course stopping to snap a few photos with our fluffy residents, including our newest koala joey, Buddy!

Nia and Holly also made friends with Dot, one half of our Kangaroo Island Kangaroo duo and our resident spikey Casanova, Diesel the Echidna. Of course, Dot and Diesel were more than obliging to indulge in some special cuddles, delicious treats and extra attention.

Posting about her experience on social media to her 4.7 million fans, commenting “My time in Australia has been so magical. I am so thankful for this experience”. Holly also reflected on her time in the Land Down Under making reference to her new Kangaroo mates and (perhaps!) their true motives for being extra friendly, commenting: “Meet our friend, Dot!!! She was fond of Nia Sioux, but I can’t blame her – she had the treats!”

Thank you to Nia and Holly for taking the time to visit us! We hope you enjoyed visiting us as much as we loved having you here! You certainly made a lasting impression with us and our animals and were a pleasure to host.
