Visiting our Zoo is the perfect day out! You’ll discover more than 70 species of native animals from across Australia, exotic animals from around the world, tropical rainforests and outback Australia exhibits.

The rich, colourful history of the gardens expands to the upper gardens, with the tranquil Japanese Gardens, designed by leading Japanese landscape designer, the late Kenzo Ogata, as part of a Treaty of friendship signed after World War 2. Find your Zen in the peaceful surrounds, koi ponds, winding trails and stepping stones.Whether you’re after the ideal venue for a family picnic, a garden lover’s sanctuary, a fun playground for the kids, or the perfect place for some tranquil ‘me time’, the Botanic Gardens is the tropical paradise for you.
