Rockhampton Zoo And Botanic Gardens - Review

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.

  • Excellent zoo and beautifully kept grounds. We were particularly impressed with the zoo keepers. They provided very good details of each animal and answered many questions. Quite a lot of overseas visitors were there on Saturday. An excellent place provided free by the Council. Well done!

  • Very tidy and family friendly. Huge space for children to run around and big playground to play with. Paths everywhere making for easy access. Definitely worth a visit.

  • One of the small and the cutest zoo I have ever visited. Great to go with your kids, they will love it. And above all it's free entry. The zoo is along side of botanical garden which gives you enough space to roam around. And also has a nice cafeteria.

  • A great place to take the kids!! The place is looking great!! Be sure to take some food down for the ducks and turtles.

  • After a longer walk than I expected (my fault...read the map wrong) I arrived at the gardens and was blown away. Stunning, peaceful scenery and easy to walk. Not flat but not to much up and down. Rainbow parakeets 'helped me' eat my sandwich...I had no choice but to let them join in (about 30 of them) so if you don't like birds beware when eating ­čśë There is small, FREE zoo within the gardens. Kangeroos, Crocs, Koala, Wombats etc.
