    What to Expect
    Visit: Cairns Aquarium, 5 Florence St, Cairns, Queensland 4870 Australia

    Follow the journey of a drop of rain as it travels from creeks and streams, into the rivers and down the tropical mountain range, through ancient rainforest to coastal mangroves before finally crossing the world’s largest coral reef, The Great Barrier Reef and entering the depths of the Coral Sea.

    Come face to face with over 15,000 animals, see live coral displays, diver shark feeds, marine and reptile touch tanks and enjoy informative, ecologist talks.

    Discover 70 different habitats showcasing the stunning diversity of the species found in the rainforest and the reef, some of which are rarely seen in the wild.

    Stand inches from sharks and stingrays, giant endangered sawfish, turtles, pythons and a kaleidoscope of tropical fish in the largest oceanarium in Queensland and the only Deep Reef tank in Australia. General Admission includes.
