WHAT TO EXPECT

The Cairns Aquarium is a world-class venue for seeing and interacting with the incredible plants, animals, and habitats found in Australia’s Wet Tropics. The Wet Tropics is a region that borders two World Heritage-listed environments: The Daintree Rainforest and The Great Barrier Reef. Protecting and conserving the biodiversity of these World Heritage-listed ecosystems through education is the driving force behind the Cairns Aquarium.

 

Every day at the Cairns Aquarium, visitors are guaranteed interaction with some of the rarest and most elusive animals on earth. The incredible biodiversity of the Wet Tropics and The Great Barrier Reef provides the cast for a show-stopping spectacle of colour, shape, and movement that you won't see anywhere else in the world. The aquarium hosts 16,000 animals from 10 different ecosystems and 71 habitats across Tropical North Queensland — careful research was conducted so that natural environments could be recreated in Cairns Aquarium to ensure the ongoing health and longevity of the species on display.

 

As the sun sets on Tropical North Queensland’s mountain ranges, steamy rainforests and shallow reefs stir with life. Reptiles, amphibians, insects, and nocturnal fish sense the onset of dusk and emerge from their daytime lairs. Brightly coloured reef fish seek shelter as predatory nighttime sharks, rays, and grouper awaken. The Aquarium by Twilight ticket takes you on an exclusive guided tour to witness this remarkable transition as day slides into sunset. Complete your evening at Dundee’s Restaurant with a perfectly matched dining experience while you enjoy a stunning sea life backdrop.
