Cairns ZOOM & Wildlife Dome

Cairns ZOOM & Wildlife Dome is an all-weather exhibit inside a 20-metre high glass dome on the roof of The Reef Hotel Casino. Imagine a challenging ropes course set in a wildlife park. You can enjoy this rainforest environment where several different native birds fly freely in the dome. This includes cockatoos, parrots and lorikeets. Most animals also roam free in the park giving the visitors a unique opportunity to observe them in a natural setting and enabling a more personal interaction. In addition to the challenge ropes, there are three zip lines including one that takes you directly over a four-metre crocodile. Head on up to the Dome Climb which offers some amazing views of Cairns including the Coral Sea.
