Get face-to-paw with the furry, fluffy and feathery residents of WILD LIFE Sydney Zoo

April 17, 2014 Attraction No Comments Email Email

WILD LIFE Sydney Zoo has today released an exciting new schedule of animal encounters that will be available across the week on a permanent basis*, allowing zoo visitors to get closer to the unique Australian animals than ever before.

From the furry and feathery to the scaly and spikey, the encounters will allow guests to experience a new adventure at WILD LIFE Sydney Zoo.

Zoo goers will be privy to Princess Parrot feeding in the zoo’s Kangaroo Walk-About. Guests can capture their adventure in a photo with the Red-collared Lorikeets that call Kakadu Gorge home or snap an image for the family photo book with Ethel or Banjo the resident Tawny Frogmouths.

Visitors will have the opportunity to feed Diesel and Tonka, the hungry Echidnas that call WILD LIFE Sydney Zoo home who are keen to meet and eat with the visitors, the first time this opportunity has been offered in any zoo or wildlife park in New South Wales.

Adventurers can head over to Gumtree Valley where they can coo over the Zoo’s Sugar Gliders Popcorn, Kandii, Penny and Titch. On the contrary, guests can test their courage with a one-on-one experience with a python where they can have a photo taken getting intimate with the scaly creature to capture the brave moment for all to see.

This series of unique animal encounters is sure to have both kids and adults of all ages running, slithering and flying through the door!
