We drove from Brisbane this week to go to the zoo and when we got there it is permanently closed. Their website is still up with their opening hours etc but it is CLOSED.

You do not need to travel into the country to see Australian Native Animals. Only a 20 minute drive from the centre of Brisbane, you will find this place and experience many of the local Animals and other attractions. Great for the family and just for a day visit.

Best little Zoo on the way to the Sunshine Coast & a good way to get really close to the action. Good value for money & you will enjoy your day here.

Alma Park Zoo is a small but lovely zoo which is suitable for smaller children. Lots of local animals such as koalas, kangaroos, peacocks, marsupials and even a tasmanian devil. Great place to take the kids on a day trip close to Brisbane and Sunshine Coast. Price was reasonable.

I've lived in Australia for many years and never seen a quoll until I came to this zoo. Or a sun bear for that matter and I have travelled around Asia. And there was an animal (the name escapes me - you will have to go and find out for yourself) that I never even knew existed until going to... More

My friend surprised me with a day at Alma Park Zoo for my birthday and it was a fantastic gift! We arrived soon after opening and after purchasing food for the animals we had plenty of places to park. We wandered around and visited all the animals and reptiles and were able to hand-feed lots of animals. The kangaroos are... More

We took our niece and nephew here for the last day of school holidays, a first time trip for all 4 of us. Overall, unfortunately I have to say it was disappointing. The admission fee is incredibly high considering what they have to offer. The exhibits include a handful of native animals (kangaroos, wallabies, dingoes, koalas etc), a farmyard area... More
