Lonely Planet review
You can bond with a multicultural mix of furred and feathered brethren at this zoo, 28km north of the city centre. Inhabiting 16 hectares of subtropical gardens is a large collection of native birds and mammals, including koalas, kangaroos, emus and dingoes. Among the impressive representation of beautiful exotics are Malaysian sun bears, tamarin and squirrel monkeys and leopards. You can touch many of the animals, and feeding times are all between 10.30am and 3pm.
To get here via public transport catch the Zoo Train (on the Caboolture line), which leaves from Roma St Station daily at 9am ($6.70, 45 minutes) and connects with the free zoo bus at Dakabin station.
