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 Reviews & Ratings
Lovely little zoo and gardens. Impressed that it’s free. Particularly liked seeing the wombat and the many tropical birds. Enjoyed the cafe, we sat under an enormous banyan tree with many lorikeets flying round the tables. Looking forward to seeing the baby chimp, she will arrive November 2019.🦜🌈🦜
I had a nice 2 hour session in the gardens while waiting for a flight. Easy to get taxi to from airport. Not a full kitchen but plenty of light options. Lots of birds, so you no like birds, you no come here. But I like birds.
Loved it! Especially as it is free to visit. Quite a good variety of mainly Australian animals, with the chance to see feeding times and also information talks. The staff are very friendly and willing to answer questions and talk about their charges. Good time was had by all. This was our second visit and will definitely come again when we're up this way
Beautiful gardens and zoo absolutely free! Amazing! Great place for families. Nice cafe in the grounds too.
Had breakfast at the cafe it was lovely food was so fresh and yum. Nice morning out
