1. Cairns: Cairns ZOOM and Wildlife Dome
Cairns ZOOM & Wildlife Dome, the world’s first Challenge Ropes Course in a wildlife exhibit, is an all-weather experience in the Cairns CBD. Experience adventure on the Mid-ZOOM or Hi-ZOOM courses, consisting of 65 elements including crossings, tunnels, a climbing wall, cargo nets, and three ziplines at various heights and lengths, including one directly over Goliath, a 4.5-meter saltwater crocodile, or try the new Pirate Climb and Commando Climb challenges. Get your heart racing with the PowerJump – a free-fall adventure with a 13 meter drop – or try the new Pirate Climb and Commando Climb challenges. Internal elevated walkways offer you a unique birds-eye view of the layout of the Dome, then step outside the glass walls (and your comfort zone) to try the external DomeClimb. Offering spectacular views of the city, the Coral Sea, and the surrounding landscapes, it’s an experience not to be missed. Enjoy a leisurely walk through the wildlife exhibit including our small bird aviary and reptile enclosures as tropical birds fly above your head through the Dome. Wildlife presentations, including crocodiles, snakes, birds, koalas and other mammals, are held regularly throughout the day and offer an educational insight into some of Australia’s most well-known animals.
