All-You-Can-Eat Dumplings at Koala Rooftop and the Upper Croc Deck
Eat endless dumplings and sip bottomless drinks on the zoo's koala rooftop at sunset — or while peering down from its croc deck.
Dumplings are great, and they go extremely well with bottomless drinks. But have you ever eaten non-stop bowls of them not only as you're sipping away, but while surrounded by koalas on a rooftop at sunset — or while peering down at a 365-kilogram crocodile? No? Well, that's exactly what you can do at Wild Life Sydney's Koala Rooftop and Upper Croc Deck when the venue teams up with dumpling experts New Shanghai for a series of all-you-can-eat feasts.
Coinciding with Lunar New Year, the dumpling and drinks sessions run from 5.30–8pm from February 11–13 and from 6–8pm on February 18–20. Tickets will set you back $80, which includes 30 minutes of endless dumplings and bottomless drinks, plus after-hours access to the zoo. Dumplings will include the likes of pork wontons, chicken and celery parcels, xiao long bao and vego numbers, plus spring rolls and rice noodles, while the drinks range includes sparkling, red and white wine, beers, soft drink and juice.
Just where you'll sit, eat and drink is up to you — so you'll need to choose between the Koala Rooftop or Upper Croc Deck.
It's recommended that you allow between 45–6pm minutes before your booked time slot to take your self-guided tour beforehand — but you can also hang around after your eating marathon until the zoo closes at 9pm.
