Darling Downs Zoo

Clifton, Toowoomba Area

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.

Already the zoo features the only pride of African Lions in Queensland, baboons, monkeys, marmosets, serval, rare Sumatran Tiger, 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 in Queensland and the largest herd of Zebras and Giant Tortoises in this State!

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.
