This Lunar New Year, WILD LIFE Sydney Zoo are offering all the above PLUS after-hour access to the zoo! They have teamed up with the dumpling-masters New Shanghai to bring back your favourite all-you-can-eat dumplings experience which now includes bottomless drinks!

Choose to have your festive 30-minute dumpling sessions at either Koala Rooftop with the adorable marsupials or at the Upper Croc Deck with a view of their resident 365kg crocodile Rocky. Both areas will be transformed into Chinese Dumpling Kingdoms complete with gold lanterns, orchid flowers, banners, inviting you to celebrate with koala-ty dumplings, which you will snap up in no time!

Diners will have access to a specially crafted menu of fan favourite dumplings from prawn to pork wonton, chicken, celery and more. They will also have access to bottomless drinks of sparkling, red and white wine, beer, soft drinks and juice.
