Leonardo DiCaprio took a break from filming The Great Gatsby in Sydney to spend some quality time with Blake Lively.

A few days after marking her 24th birthday, Lively jetted off to Australia to meet her beau, and on Tuesday, the couple stopped by Sydney’s Featherdale Wildlife Park, where they met a dingo pup named Nala, a koala named Austin and a python named Cuddles. PHOTOS: Blake Lively’s Lucky Charm: Penny!

“They were both so nice and down to earth,” Featherdale marketing manager Kellie Ames tells Australia’s Daily Telegraph. “There was certainly no diva behavior. Leo was asking about the endangered animals. They loved the koalas and the wombats. We also brought out baby saltwater crocs.”

Lively and DiCaprio attempted to stay under the radar; they both wore hats at the zoo. Their affection was on clearer display on Saturday, when the pair stopped at Sydney’s Aria restaurant for a dinner with a harbor view.

A source told the Daily Telegraph: “She looked gorgeous and they looked very much like a couple.”
