  • The free zoo, the walk around the gardens. Lovely food in the cafe and reasonably priced. Check out the animal talks, take a picnic or just relax on a blanket in the shade. 
  • Enjoyed the peaceful gardens. Easy enough to walk around. Open till 6pm. Large enough that you can enjoy some quiet time 
  • Location is nice, animals seemed a bit slow and unwell, signage is not the best. Food was not good and chairs and tables are all broken. Play ground lots of items where closed for repairs or damaged. ...  more »

  • A great botanic garden but we found the lack of signage and maps a bit frustrating. When in season the tropical fruit garden is amazing. Unfortunately the fernery is closed since a long time undergoing repairs.
  • Although a highly rated regional botanic garden we found the lack of good signage and maps a bit of a frustration. When in season the tropical fruit garden would be interesting. Unfortunately the fernery was closed undergoing repairs.
  • What an enjoyable day. The animals are well cared for and the zoo is beautifully presented. A credit to the Rockhampton City Council for maintaining it and keeping it free for all to enjoy.
  • Great atmosphere, was gteat to see the animals. Beautiful animals.
