Rockhampton Zoo is home to almost 100 animals, with 31 species including both native and exotic.
Come and meet Gandali, the newest member of our chimpanzee family, who was born in February 2020, or stop by the Australian Wetlands zone to marvel over our giant saltwater crocodile 'The Colonel'. Spot the colours of the rainbow in our aviaries, overload on cuteness in kangaroo country and watch the otters play like children in the water - Rockhampton Zoo has something for everyone!
Give yourself a couple of hours to meet the animals, then take a relaxing walk around Rockhampton's Botanic Gardens and the Murray Lagoon - all free and all in the same spot!
Entry to Rockhampton Zoo is free.
Rockhampton Zoo is open to the public 7 days a week from 10.00am to 4.00pm.
When visiting the Zoo, please do not wear gumboots. They can cause our animals stress and lead to injury. The welfare of our animals is our priority so you will not be permitted entry when wearing gumboots.
