Cairns Tropical Zoo
Your ultimate wildlife adventure - Cairns Tropical Zoo.
This award winning attraction is a great wildlife experience in the Cairns' region. Nowhere else in tropical Australia will you find the diversity of wildlife that is available at this wonderful oasis, situated just 20 minutes from the CBD. Since 1980, the Zoo has been delighting visitors of all ages from Australia and around the world.
As you meander through the Zoo's award winning tropical gardens, discover fascinating and rare animals both from Australia and other regions of the world such as Nepalese Red Pandas and Ring-tailed Lemurs. We believe that by educating our visitors about wildlife, and providing opportunities to have 'up close' experiences with them, they will leave with a greater understanding of why conservation is so important for the future. You can Cuddle a Koala, feed a kangaroo, see giant crocodiles and enjoy great wildlife presentations and tours. There’s so much to see and do at our Zoo.
The wildlife shows and presentations include a crocodile show at 1:45pm, free flight bird show at 10am and 3:15pm and a wonderful snake exhibition at 11:45am. The zoo keepers are always happy to answer questions and the kids are involved in the presentations.

Cairns Zoom is a ropes course that hangs above the Cairns Wildlife dome. Climb and balance in the air in the midst of the free flight birds and above the animals. Test your strength and your nerve on the mid and HI zoom courses, the dome climb and the power jump.more info
