Impromptu adventuring, exploring our backyard and then putting pen to paper, hoping to entice you to try one, if not all, of our escapades, is my true reward!

After Alma Park Zoo closed in 2014, the privately-owned Wildlife HQ in Woombye was established to accommodate the two hundred animals from Alma Park in their new permanent home at the Big Pineapple.

Whilst this is a relatively small zoo, one can start it off with a heritage train ride and disembark at the zoo, and catch the train back once you have spent your time wandering around the zoo - all children, big and small love the train ride. Wildlife HQ's whole aim is to educate families and children about our environment and conservation.
