Cairns Aquarium

Cairns Aquarium is an exciting, new visitor attraction located in the heart of Cairns. Guests of all ages will have guaranteed interaction with the spectacular beauty of over 15,000 marine and land animals from two adjoining, world heritage protected areas; the Great Barrier Reef and the Wet Tropics Rainforest without the need to get wet or even leave the city!

Be guided through nine amazing North Queensland ecosystems from the world‰’s most ancient rainforest to the world‰’s largest coral reef to discover 70 different exhibits showcasing the rare and incredibly unique species of this region. Endangered Freshwater Sawfish, Scalloped Hammerhead Sharks and Humphead Maori Wrasse dominate the massive freshwater and marine habitats, while Amethystine Pythons and Boyd‰ Forest Dragons make a spectacle of themselves in their terrestrial displays.

Enjoy presentations at Australia‰’s only Deep Reef tank and live Diver Talks at Queensland‰’s largest Oceanarium. Add to this marine and terrestrial touch tanks and in depth back-of-house research facility and turtle rehabilitation tours. Sleep with the Sharks sleepovers are perfect for groups and coming in 2018 you can even Dive with Hammerheads! Complete your day at Cairns Aquarium with breakfast, lunch or dinner at Aqualuna contemporary Italian restaurant.
