Cairns ZOOm and Wildlife Dome
Your general admission to Cairns ZOOm and Wildlife Dome provides a rainforest experience where you can observe Aussie wildlife and soak up the lush environment. With its rooftop location and views, the unique Wildlife Dome is an all-weather wildlife exhibit, where animals live in settings that mimic their natural habitats. You’ll enjoy up-close interactions and photo ops with wallabies, koalas, snakes, crocodiles and native birds, who fly freely around the dome.
Check out the keeper presentations and shows to learn more about the animals, and upgrade your admission to include one, two or several optional activities that enhance your rainforest adventure. When booking, you also have the option to select the 4 Park Pass, which provides entry to three more Queensland attractions: Rainforestation, Wildlife Habitat Port Douglas and the Australian Butterfly Sanctuary.
