All-you-can-eat dumplings at the Zoo

Love dumplings? Fluffy and fierce animals? Exceptional value? Celebrate Lunar New Year at WILD LIFE Sydney Zoo and enjoy all-you-can-eat dumplings at twilight, surrounded by koalas or in the company of Rocky, the Saltwater Crocodile.

This Lunar New Year, WILD LIFE Sydney Zoo is offering all the above PLUS after-hour access to the zoo! 

In partnership with the dumpling legends at New Shanghai, you will enjoy an all-you-can-eat dumplings experience at twilight, surrounded by koalas or Rocky, our Saltwater Crocodile!

The Koala Rooftop and the Croc Den of WILD LIFE Sydney Zoo will transform into a Chinese Dumpling kingdom, inviting you to celebrate with koala-ty dumplings, which you will snap up in no time!

Before or following your twilight dumpling session, enjoy exclusive after-hour access to the zoo and meet our iconic Australian animals.

The guys at New Shanghai are serving up a custom dumpling menu featuring all your favourites! Think prawn and pork wonton, chicken and celery dumplings and Xiao Long Bao.
