Visit: Cairns ZOOM and Wildlife Dome, 35 – 41 Wharf Street The Reef Hotel Casino, Cairns, Queensland 4870 Australia
Enjoy a day out at the Cairns ZOOM and Wildlife Dome, the world’s first high ropes course within a wildlife park. Perched high on the roof top of a building and offering spectacular views, this unique concept offers an all-weather wildlife exhibit.
Thrill seekers can truly get their fill, with a variety of adrenaline-filled activity for all ages and abilities. Our Mid-Zoom course runs 3m above the ground and has a range of exciting elements such as climbing walls, tunnels and ziplines. The larger Hi-Zoom consists are more complex obstacles and towers up to 12 metres above ground level. You even zipline over Goliath, our giant 4.5m Estaurine Crocodile! See sweeping 360 degree views of Cairns and the Coral Sea on our Dome Climb, which sees you walking on the outside of the Casino Roof. Those really seeking a thrill can try the Power Jump, a enthralling 13m free fall adventure.
All the wildlife is presented in natural settings and habitats, giving you the opportunity for close animal interaction and great photo opportunities. See the cuddly and furry koalas and wallabies, scaly snakes and crocodiles, and native birds flying freely around you. There are shows and keeper presentations throughout the day, providing an interactive and fun learning experience.
