Alma Park Zoo was a 40-acre (16 ha) zoo located north of Brisbane, Australia, in Dakabin on Alma Road. The small 20-acre (8.1 ha) park was filled with Australian and exotic species. Alma Park Zoo was the first zoo to open in Queensland and was the oldest zoo in Queensland. The zoo closed on the 31 March 2014 and many of the animals were transferred to Queensland Zoo. There were plans for the zoo to open in Logan, however this was cancelled in May 2015.

Alma Park Zoo was open everyday from 9am to 4pm, excluding Christmas Day and reduced hours on ANZAC Day (25 April).


Alma Park Zoo was fully landscaped with walking paths through tropical gardens under a canopy of rainforest trees and plants. A number of enclosures were walkthrough, such as the wallaby and kangaroo enclosures.

Koalas, snakes and crocodiles could be patted and guests also had an opportunity to be photographed with these animals. There was a cafe with souvenirs and guests were provided free use of the onsite gas barbecues to cook a picnic lunch.

Lemur island

Lemur island was a tropical based place in the northern part of the zoo. It had a wooden cabin to protect the lemurs from bad weather conditions such as rain. Reptiles could be also found on the island such as tortoises and eastern water dragon.
