During some downtime from her talk show, Ellen DeGeneres and wife Portia de Rossi jetted to Sydney, Australia, for a little R&R, and paid a visit to the city's Taronga Zoo.
While touring Friday, DeGeneres made nice with a koala sitting among some branches, flashing it her signature grin as de Rossi looked on.
Later, the couple shared a tender moment while viewing the zoo's giraffes, one of whom even popped its head over to say hello.
A popular destination among Hollywood's A-List, the Taronga Zoo had visits from Nicole Richie and Joel Madden, Nick and Vanessa Lachey and Minka Kelly last year.
