Rockhampton Botanic Gardens and Zoo Redevelopment - Concept Plan 

As one of the region’s most popular destinations, the Rockhampton Botanic Gardens & Zoo attracts over 300,000 local and tourism visitors per annum. The heritage-listed gardens were established in 1869 and have been a key asset in the region for over 150 years. The Zoo has been operational since 1925, and is set to celebrate its centenary in a few short years.

Council has endorsed a concept plan to breathe new life into the two attractions over the next ten years.
