Went for a day drive to Rockhampton; visited the Gardens and the Zoo. Fantastic is an under statement. Everything is well maintained; the zoo was exceptional. The grand daughter had a ball with all the animals. Great time had by all.

Tea rooms! Rainbow lorikeets!!! Good vibe in the kids park and every season has some amazing trees showing off bright blossoms. Great for kids and adults, the zoo is free and decent, cafe serves nice choice of freshly made and ready take away food, kids park is in a shade, also a secret nook with outdoor musical instruments. The lagoon has turtles and very mean intimidating looking geese.

We visited the free gardens and zoo as part of a day trip to Rockhampton. The small zoo was excellent. The zookeepers doing the feedings (check for times on the website) were knowledgeable and friendly. Seeing the new baby chimp was lovely! The zoo was immaculately clean and the animals are well cared for.

The Botanical Gardens were slightly disappointing as the Japanese Gardens are under complete construction. However, the war memorial and plaques were educational and other pathways were pretty. For those with young children, there is a large playground with washrooms and a cafe close by.

There is so much to see at the Botanic Gardens. Not just the natural bush land but exotic plants from around the world. Plus the free zoo where animals are very well kept for. Have lunch at the kiosk or down by the lagoon.
