Darling Downs Zoo Information
The Darling Downs Zoo is situated in a beautiful rural setting on the eastern Downs - midway between Toowoomba and Warwick - just over two hour's drive from the Brisbane Central Business District.
This new zoo is being developed in a garden format centred on the geographical areas of Australia, South-east Asia, Africa and South America.
Already the zoo features the only pride of African Lions in south-east Queensland, baboons, monkeys, marmosets, tropical birds, kangaroos and white wallabies, camel, deer, crocodiles and alligator, boa constrictors, the world's most venomous snakes, pythons and much, much more. The zoo is also home to the only white lions living permanently in Queensland!
The zoo is open to the public from 9.00 a.m. six days a week. It is closed on Tuesdays - except for the Queensland state school holidays when it is open every day. It is closed on Christmas Day.
Picnic facilities are available, there is a kiosk and gift shop with EFTPOS and free parking for all vehicles including coaches and caravans. The entire zoo is wheelchair friendly.
