Free or Cheap Animal Encounters in Brisbane

by Sally Foster (follow)
Animal encounters in and around Brisbane that won't break the bank

Hands up who's kid loves animals? I can safely assume that every single person reading this raised their hands. Kids love animals and the joy of seeing their little faces light up when they hold a bunny or pat a sheep is incredible.

There are lots of places to see animals around Brisbane. We have an article here dedicated to some awesome places you can go with your family that are purely animal experiences.

But if you are just looking for a short animal encounter that is free or cheap and doesn't require a dedicated day trip, then give one of these a go:

1. Walkabout Creek Discovery Centre

Encounter wombats, platypus rockpools and learn about native wildlife in an educational setting.

Any Cost? There is a fee for this one but it is minimal. Children 4-17 years is $3.70 and adults are $7.70

2. Queens Park Cafe

This indoor outdoor Ipswich Cafe with a great playground also has a connecting Environmental Education Centre where you can view animals such as bilbies, wombats and quolls

Any Cost? Only if you want to buy food and coffee at the cafe.

3. Samford Lifestyle Centre

As well as stores, nursery, farmers market and lake, the Lifestyle Centre plays host to ducks, chicken, goats, sheep and donkeys.
