Want to sleep with koalas? Well, almost at the Taronga Zoo in Sydney, Australia.

The travel site Lonely Planet reported on the new attraction at the zoo in New South Wales. Five eco-pods, environmentally sensitive, of course, and sustainable, are located on the grounds of the zoo for guests to spend the night.

For more traditional travelers, 62 rooms, including suites, are available as well.

The overnight guests receive behind-the-scenes access after the zoo has closed for the day. Tour guides will take the guests on private tours through the grounds. After that, guests will be able to experience an Australian fine dining experience with hand selected native ingredients used to prepare the meal.
