I loved the diverse range of beautiful, vibrant corals. I also learned many interesting facts, including that sunscreen kills coral and that bleached corals aren't necessarily dead corals. Thanks!

A journey through marine life

A day at Cairns Aquarium will take you close to the stunning biodiversity of the Great Barrier Reef and the Wet Tropics Rainforest. From sharks, rays, and freshwater fish to pythons, crocodiles, and emerald tree monitors, the aquarium houses more than 16,000 animals across 11 zones. It is the one spot in Australia where you can find a 10-meter Deep Reef Tank and the country’s largest freshwater exhibit, a unique experience you don’t want to miss out on. Throughout the day, you can enjoy access to immersive and educational experiences including daily ecosystem talks, live diver feeds, a mangrove boardwalk, a 20-meter underwater tunnel, and much more.
