Cairns Zoom and Wildlife Dome

Cairns Zoom and Wildlife Dome is the world’s first adventure rope course in a wildlife park.

High above the Cairns Reef Hotel Casino is the magnificent all-weather wildlife dome.

The Cairns Zoom features a vast range of activities for the whole family, including high rope courses over moving logs, chairs and other ropes.

Not for the fainthearted, Cairns ZOOM is the worlds first adventure ropes course within a wildlife exhibit. Consisting of ziplines, and crossings amongst native fauna, at various heights and levels of difficulty.

Whether you’re looking to fill an hour or a whole day’s worth of fun, this Cairns attraction has something for the entire family to enjoy.

As an added extra this all takes place in the Cairns city zoo all enclosed in a 20-metre high glass dome.  While you are braving the ropes course, cheeky cockatoo’s, parrots and other birds are flying freely around the dome.

Great photo opportunities

Have your photo taken on the Zipline or with some of our favourite zoo friends. If getting your photo with a koala is high on your must do’s the Cairns city zoo is a wonderful place to do that.
