About Rockhampton Zoo And Botanic Gardens, Rockhampton

This isn’t a long visit, but it sure is an intimate one. The zoo is enclosed within the shady and cool botanical garden, which are a great boon during the searing Australian summers. Come early and and check out the gardens first at sunrise. They open at six, so you’ll have two hours before you need to enter the zoo to visit the Japanese Gardens, the Desert Gardens, the Murray Lagoon and the Garden Tearoom. Once you go off to the see the animals, there are specific sections clamouring for your attention. The Reptile Area, the Australian Walkabout (mostly birds and kangaroos, even a Koala) and Furry Friend (mostly monkeys and apes). It’s a lot of fun packed into a very small package.

Rockhampton Zoo And Botanic Gardens, Rockhampton Reviews

  • This is a real gem for Rockhampton. A great place to escape the heat - of which this place has the copyright on. Check out the Japanese gardens - it is so serene to come here either after a long drive north or south, or after work. There is a small kiosk that does sell some tasty food and cool drinks. Do check it out - even if you are just driving through Rocky.

  • An absolute gem! The Rockhampton Botanical Gardens were a surprisingly good find. The gardens are on par with many capital city Botanical gardens and when you include the Rockhampton Zoo, they are well worth a visit. Great playground for the kids and plenty of shade and cool areas on a hot day!

  • Were in Rocky and decided to visit the gardens to go bird hunting. The gardens are quite large and you will need a good hour to walk around them properly. Bird lovers paradise and we recorded 42 species in 2 hours. Recommend walking through the large tree section as there are some amazing trees and don't forget the war memorial and Japanese gardens located above the cafe.

  • Great place to drop in to give the kids a chance to run around. The zoo is nice, and the kids enjoyed seeing the animals. It was under renovation when I dropped in, but it was still worth visiting.

  • Having been my first trip to oz from nz , i wanted to be able to see Australian wild life and was excited to see all of this an it was free amazed me. I was not disappointed such a wonderful place , helpful staff I got to see dingos, Koalas , crocs, emus, snakes, kangaroos,and so much more Rockhampton should be so proud good on yous. This is one happy Kiwi .
