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

  • Average for a botanical gardens they do keep it nice but i like different zones of plant species they didnt have many here. Lovely war memorial Awesome that zoo is attached People need to stop feeding the turtles in the lake they swarmed when we went to the shore. I love seeing turtles but that concerned me Cafe was nice the established figs surrounding it were awesome Overall well tended

  • 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.

  • I think it is a beautiful place to visit and would like to go more often. The mosquitoes have been really bad the last few times and chased us off. Also there is an area we went to walk through and the smell of the animal poo was too much. I will be going again though.

  • Perfect for weekend stroll with my dog. Also a great place if you want to do some brisk walking or jog.

  • Awesome place to take your partner or family down to check out the free zoo and seeing the different plants and animals they have there.
