The zookeeper was taken to Nambour Hospital where he was treated for a puncture wound.
A spokeswoman for the hospital said he was in a stable condition.
This is the second tiger attack at the zoo in just eight months.
In November, a 114kg Bengal tiger attacked his handler Dave Styles and bit him on the neck and shoulder during a tiger show in front of horrified onlookers.
