Croc around Rocky! A CROCtail Bar with a 365kg crocodile pops-up in Darling Harbour this Halloween

October 10, 2020 Attraction No Comments Email Email

Oh snap! WILD LIFE Sydney Zoo is scaling and tailing up your Halloween celebrations this year with a deliciously wicked pop-up CROCtail Bar inside an underground Crocodile Den. That’s right, inside a crocodile den with an actual crocodile.

Just a piece of (sturdy and thick) glass will stand between you and the Darling Harbour zoo’s mammoth Saltwater Crocodile. His name is Rocky, he is over 4m long and weighs at least 365kg! Don’t get on his bad side!

Upon arrival, guests will be greeted with a free drink and a rare hands-on reptile encounter (snake or lizard).

It’s then on to find an allocated seat to order some tasty tapas and cocktails aka CROCtails made by mobile bar company Trolley’d using locally and responsibly sourced native and wild foraged ingredients such as roasted wattle, urban beehive honey and Illawarra Plum Vodka.

The evening kicks on when the WILD LIFE Sydney Zoo team emerge for a Croc Talk and there may even be the chance to watch Rocky feed!

WILD LIFE Sydney Zoo’s CROCtail Bar pops up on Halloween weekend with bookings available 5pm-7pm and 7pm-9pm over two weekend ­- 30 October-1 November and 6-8 November.

Tickets are $15 per person and include a free beer or house wine on arrival. Plus $5 from each ticket sold will be donated to the WILD LIFE Conservation Fund supporting animal research, conservation and welfare.

Seating is limited with only 13 spots available per session in the Croc Den and 38 in the Upper Viewing Deck. Get in quick and book yourself in for cocktails with a side of crocodile by clicking here.

WILD LIFE Sydney Conservation Fund partners are Science for Wildlife, Rainforest Rescue and Sleepy Burrows. Their work includes monitoring iconic and threatened koalas, caring for orphaned and/or injured wombats and more. For further information on the WILD LIFE Conservation Fund, click here.
