The Rockhampton Zoo, nestled between Rockhampton's Botanic Gardens and Murray Lagoon, is the perfect venue for families to see native Australian fauna, as well as some exotic species. The zoo is open every day of the year from 8am till 4.30pm and entry is free! Feeding times in the late afternoon are always a delight, especially for children. Educational tours are available for all ages. Check out all the Zoo action on Facebook too.
