SEE the won­ders of the an­i­mal king­dom from around the world with­out leav­ing the coun­try when you visit Dar­ling Downs Zoo.

Lo­cated about half way be­tween Toowoomba and War­wick in the town of Pil­ton on the Gat­ton-Clifton Rd, there is a com­pre­hen­sive range of ex­otic an­i­mals and one of the best re­sourced zoos in re­gional Aus­tralia.

The lat­est ad­di­tion is the ar­rival of two white lions from South Africa, which are the only breed­ing pair in Queens­land, hav­ing pro­duced one cub.

This is ex­tremely im­por­tant as no white lions have been seen in the wild since 1994.

Why not try the zoo’s Big Cat En­counter, at $50 per per­son adult or child, a spe­cially trained keeper will ac­com­pany you be­hind the scenes to feed some of the lions and tigers through spe­cial aper­tures in their en­clo­sure.

It is the thrill of a life­time and ab­so­lutely safe and you will also learn about th­ese beau­ti­ful an­i­mals.

A day at the zoo is a great way to bring the fam­ily to­gether.

The zoo is open ev­ery day 9am–3pm ex­cept Christ­mas Day.

CUTE CUB: White lions are the high­light at Dar­ling Downs Zoo.
