Private Dining 


If you had to describe your dream date, would the idea of dinner and animals come to mind? Combine the two and add some bubbles beneath the romantic night sky and you may just have yourself a scene similar to last week's episode of The Bachelor Australia!


Wild Life Sydney Zoo is giving visitors the opportunity to enjoy a private evening visit and intimate dining experience like no other, surrounded by iconic Australian wild life. The experience is available for couples or small groups to exclusively book for any night of the year, with larger function packages also available at the iconic Darling Harbour attraction, perfect for the festive season.


“We are so excited to launch our private dinners at Wild Life Sydney Zoo,” says Mark Connolly, General Manager. “We had a lot of fun working with the Warner Bros. team to create a unique, intimate experience for Nick Cummins and Brittany on The Bachelor Australia, and now everyone can enjoy a similar night under the stars for themselves.


“Private dining at Wild Life Sydney Zoo truly is a very unique experience. What’s not to love about exclusive after-hours access to the zoo, great food enjoyed in the company of our amazing animals including Dot the Kangaroo or Rocky the Crocodile?


“Perfect for a romantic proposal or any special occasion, Wild Life Sydney Zoo promises a memorable night like no other.”


Quoka Encounter
