The Rockhampton Zoo is a free entry zoo within the botanical gardens. It's pretty good for a free zoo. It has the stock standard Australian animals like koalas, dingoes, kangaroos and emus, a couple of crocs, a few different species of birds. Their main attraction would be the monkey's but unfortunately we didn't see them as they were in their cages for lunch or something?
Lots of areas were closed for maintenance while we were there which is unfortunate considering it is school holidays? Would also be good if they could advertise the times they lock the animals up so people can make their plans accordingly.
They do have a number of free shows too but they were later in the afternoon and we had to leave before then.
Good free zoo though and would go again with kids.
