Wildlife HQ (Formerly Queensland Zoo)


Wildlife HQ is located at the iconic Big Pineapple on the Sunshine Coast!

When Brisbane's Alma Park Zoo closed for housing and development, the keepers and their manager Julie built a brand new zoo for the animals at the Big Pineapple.

The zoo is now home to over 100 species of animal from around the world. Most notably, the zoo holds one of the largest primate collections in Queensland and is home to the only Sun Bear, Maly. Wildlife HQ is also home to your favourite Australian animals including Koalas, Tassie Devils, Dingoes, Kangaroos and lots more.

Wildlife HQ provides close encounters of an animal kind! Koala cuddles are very popular with visitors. And there are over 20 other animal encounters available that allow you to get up close and personal with the animals. Monkey encounters are available daily and are fun for all ages. Yes...Visitors can actually go in with the monkeys!

Immersed in a beautiful rain forest setting, Wildlife HQ is a fun, affordable, family friendly day out on the Sunshine Coast.

They love their animals and they would love for you to meet them too!
