CAIRNS WILDLIFE DOME is a spectacular all-weather wildlife immersion exhibit - and open and interactive environment for humans and animals to mingle in a spacious natural setting - enclosed by a 20 metre high glass dome on top of the iconic Reef Hotel Casino. Immerse yourself in a rainforest environment whilst parrots, cockatoos and other birds native to the Wet Tropics region fly freely around you. Interact with other animals such as turtles, pythons, freshwater crocodiles, lizards and gliders. In the late afternoon, observe the feeding habits of curlews, bettongs, frogmouths and kookaburras.

The Dome is home to The Cairns ZOOm, the world’s first Challenge Ropes Course in a wildlife immersion exhibit, consisting of over 50 elements of crossings and ziplines – including one which takes participants
directly over the top of Goliath, our 4 metre saltwater crocodile!

Interact with and be educated about our native fauna at different heights within the Dome during an exhilarating experience, then walk along internal and external walkways with a unique birds-eye view of the internal layout of the Dome, as well as a spectacular view of the city and surrounding land and seascapes.
