    ALMA PARK ZOO

    THE ZOO CLOSED IN 2014
    The animal collection is being looked after by Queensland Zoo located at the big Pineapple, Nambour until the new Zoo at Logan is completed.

    This is a great little privately owned Zoo in Brisbane. Its located only 30minutes from the city centre, an easy drive, or you can catch the train (9.08 from Central Station) and a free Bus will take you there. The Bus returns to the Station at 1.30pm.

    The Zoo is located in beautiful, lush, Tropical gardens, with plenty of seating and picnic facilities. It also has a nice Cafe, with a few souvenirs for sale.

    Its a good place to see the Australian wildlife. You can wander amongst the Kangaroos and Wallabies, easily see and take photos of the Koalas, see Emus, Dingo, Wombat, Echidna and the Cassowary to name a few. There are Australian Lizards and Birds on display and other animals such as the pretty Red Panda.

    Ranger talks on different Animals are given throughout the day. Don't expect a Zoo on the scale of Taronga Park, it isn't, but its still a lovely one for a browse around, especially if you want to see the Australian wildlife and if you have children, they love it.

    ALMA PARK ZOO CLOSED IN 2014
    The animal collection is being looked after by Queensland Zoo located at the big Pineapple, Nambour until the new Zoo at Logan is completed.

    At Alma Park Zoo there are Ranger Talks. We went to the one on the Squirrel Monkey's and the Boa Constrictor and Freshwater Crocodile, just a small one.
    Afterwards, YOU GET TO TOUCH AND FEEL THE SNAKE & CROCODILE if you wish.
    I felt the Crocodile and was really amazed at how beautiful and soft its hide was. NOT MANY PLACES LET YOU DO THIS.

    Afterwards, you can have a professional photo of you holding either a Snake, Baby Crocodile or Koala for $15 (2009) Food is also available at $3 pkt or 2 for $5, and ideal way to make friends with the Kangaroos and Wallabies, and anything else (Deer, Donkey, etc)

    You'll love the setting of this zoo! It's almost like a small rain forest. I think Alma Park Zoo even got awarded for its beautiful setting.
    Besides lots of cute koalas and kangaroos they've also got some non-australian animals like deer, monkeys (felt a bit sorry for them though as they have to live in small cages and didn't look happy at all) etc. Furthermore, snakes, ostriches, emus, turtles and many more animals call Alma Park Zoo their home.

    Brisbane's Alma Park Zoo

    Established in 1969 as a native animal sanctuary, Alma Park became a registered zoo in 1973 with the arrival of exotic animals . The zoo was taken over by an animal loving family in 1981 and has since undergone extensive redevelopment to improve conditions for the animals.
