Past Event

Dating and Mating at WILD LIFE Sydney Zoo

Love is in the air in the oceans, and bush this February! To celebrate World Pride WILD LIFE Sydney Zoo is bringing you a new event - Dating & Mating

Launching this February, WILD LIFE Sydney Zoo & SEA LIFE Sydney Aquarium  are celebrating World Pride by exploring the the diversity and relationships in the animal kingdom.

Hop on up our rainbow VIP carpet and begin your journey into our colourful world. Explore some of the fascinating stories of our creatures and the different roles they play in finding a mate, breeding, and bringing up their young – you’ll get an incredible insight into the world of dating and mating across our many animal species, both on land and underwater. 

Fancy discovering how our new Freshwater Crocodiles use bubbles to attract a mate? Want to find out which creatures are so independent they clone themselves rather than breed? Help our Bower Bird decorate his bower to attract a mate. 

Over at SEA LIFE Sydney, we’ve got oceans of pride, and we can’t wait for you to dive in. Fancy helping Sphen and Magic, our same- sex Gentoo Penguin couple, build their pebble nest? Feel like snapping a selfie with Pig the Dugong in Pig’s Tunnel of Pride. And why not pucker up and kiss Bud’, our upcycled fish?  

There are plenty of fun activities for the kids, cute photo opportunities for the big kids and the sweetest discoveries for the whole family. 

PLUS, you can save over 30% off with a Sydney Big Ticket when you purchase a combined 2-attraction pass - so you can enjoy Dating & Mating at both SEA LIFE and WILD LIFE for just $65 per adult and $48 per child.  

Don’t miss out on Dating & Mating at SEA LIFE Sydney Aquarium and WILD LIFE Sydney Zoo this summer, where you will find out if there really is plenty more fish in the sea…
