This world-Class, modern aquarium will showcase the incredible species and habitats found exclusively in Far North Queensland. Visitors will be able to see many of the creatures that cannot be found anywhere else in the world or are rarely seen due to their nocturnal habits. Several rare, endangered, unusual, and even deadly specimens will be on display.
More than 5000 creatures from land, lakes, mangroves, shoreline, reefs, and open ocean ecosystems will be on display. Major themed exhibits will include: The Open Ocean, The Great Barrier Reef, River Monsters, Rivers and Streams, Life in the Mangroves, Coral Atoll, Reptiles and Amphibians of the Rainforest, Dangers of the Reef, and much more.
One of the many highlights of The Cairns Aquarium will be a two part 20 metre long 270 degree acrylic underwater viewing tunnel through into a 360 degree open ocean viewing shark lagoon where you'll experience Australia's only school of Scalloped Hammerhead Sharks in a 2 million litre, 5 metre high deep water exhibit. Here you will witness the awesome forces of the open ocean from all angles and see the interactions of 3 metre sharks, giant stingrays, fearsome guitarfish, fast swimming unicorn fish and dozens of other reef species.
