4km from Rockhampton CBD | Directions to Rockhampton Zoo
Nestled within the Botanic Gardens, Rockhampton Zoo has been at its present site since 1925. While the animal section at that time consisted of monkeys, cassowary, possums, guinea pigs and pea fowl, today you can discover more than 60 species of Australian and exotic animals.
Whether it is chimpanzees and cassowaries, dingoes and otters, or crocodiles, koalas and meerkats, there are an array of fascinating animals to meet and observe in their carefully recreated habitats.
Time your visit with one of the many daily feeding sessions throughout the Zoo for an up close and personal experience then head to the Botanic Gardens for lunch where you can grab a bite to eat at the Gardens Tearooms and sit under the 150 year old Banyan Fig Trees.
