Cairns Aquarium and City Sights Tours

Make your own way to the Cairns Aquarium which is home to more than 15,000 specimens and 10 ecosystems. It is the only aquarium in the world to exclusively showcase the stunning aquatic wildlife from tropical North Queensland’s two World Heritage-listed areas – the Great Barrier Reef and the Wet Tropics Rainforest. At the Cairns Aquarium, you will learn how a drop of rain descends from the Cairns Mountain Ranges into streams and rivers, through the rainforest, across the mangroves, along the shallow lagoons of the Great Barrier Reef, and finally, into the depths of the Coral Sea.
Cairns Aquarium opens at 10.00am

At 12.45pm you will be collected by Cairns Discovery Tours guide to continue your afternoon exploring Cairns city sights and the surrounding region. Visit Cairns Museum, St Monica’s Cathedral, Cairns Botanic Gardens, Cairns scenic lookout, Lower Barron Gorge National Park with Surprise Creek Falls, and beautiful Palm Cove.

Cairns Aquarium by Twilight

As a local I have really enjoyed this experience on more than one occasion.

Looking to relax during the day, maybe by the hotel pool and then enjoy a leisurely afternoon and evening learning why Cairns and Tropical North Queensland is renowned as the gateway to two of the world’s greatest natural attractions: the Great Barrier Reef and the Wet Tropics Rainforest.

As the sun sets on North Queensland’s mountain ranges, steam rainforests and shallow reef lagoons begin to stir with life. Nocturnal reptiles, amphibians, insects and fish sense the onset of dusk and emerge from their daytime lairs.

Aquarium by twilight gives you an insight into the unique changes of the region’s night-time creatures as they move about in the shadows. Witness the predators in the Oceanarium with appetiser and drink in hand, before completing your evening at Dundee’s Restaurant with a perfectly matched dining experience while enjoying a stunning marine life backdrop.
