Places Where You Can Dine With Animals In & Around Sydney
Breakfast with animals is a wonderful way of engaging kids in a meal with a seriously cute twist—and luckily, there are some great venues in Sydney that cater to such exciting experiences. Here's where you and the kids can hang with some furry friends all while downing a delicious meal. Bon appétit!
1. Breakfast With The Koalas At Wild Life Sydney Zoo
A hot and continental buffet breakfast on the koala rooftop? Now that's what we call breakfast! Complete with a picture-perfect bush garden setting lined with gum trees, enjoy the most important meal of the day with the resident koalas at Wild Life Sydney Zoo, while the keepers share all the fun koala facts - and snap photos of you and your new furry friends sharing a meal together. The weekend experience includes general admission to the zoo and is FREE for kids under 4, so let the animal adventures begin!
Due to COVID-19 social distancing and capacity requirements, Breakfast with the Koalas is temporarily unavailable.
2. Have Breakfast With Over 200 Alpacas And Llamas At Alpaca Magic
For the latest meet-and-greet animal experience in town, get the family up early, hop in the car and head to Alpaca Magic in Sutton for brekkie with some new fluffy friends. Totally worth the 3.5-hour drive from Sydney, here you'll learn all about what life is like as an alpaca or llama, all while hand-feeding them some brekkie treats (if only the kids loved carrots as much as these guys do!) - before filling your bellies with a complimentary brekkie including bacon and egg rolls, sausages and halloumi, plus tea and coffee).
3. Collect Eggs For Breakfast And Feed The Animals At Calmsley Hill City Farm
The ultimate camping experience for little animal lovers, an overnight stay at Calmsley Hill includes two days at the farm with exclusive activities and up-close animal encounters. You can collect eggs for your breakfast in the morning - a real farm to fork experience. You will tuck into a feast of bacon egg rolls and cereal, plus juice, tea and coffee, and you can help give the animals their morning feed while you're at it. Happy bellies all around!
4. Have Coffee And Babycinos With The Resident Pets At The Grounds
For a dine-with-the-animals experience that doesn't involve a long drive, head to The Grounds of Alexandria, where you can sit back with coffee and cake and Fluffy, the fabulous Parrot, in The Potting Shed - but don't touch him...he can bite! You'll also want to say hi to their too-cute pink and black-spotted resident pig, Harry Trotter, his rooster friends and the animal crew at the friendly animal farm.
