I loved spending time in the dome. The keepers are friendly, interactive and patient with questions. There's a schedule that involves presentations and feeding different animals at different times of the day. One ticket lets you in and out for five days, very convenient. Loved all the free flying birds and seeing how they interact. Watch your feet, because the... More

Cairns Zoom is outstanding, simple as that. Unique experience, great facilities, fantastic staff and an overwhelming sense of safety. Make sure it's on your list of "must do's" when you head to Cairns, you will not be disappointed.

What a fabulous place. I just loved it and not being a great lover of heights - I surprised myself by being to complete the entire course. We had so much fun and there are not too many places where you find yourself level with the birds roosting in the trees - you really have to wonder what they think... More

WOOOHOOOO!!! What an awesome way to spend a Saturday! The whole family thoroughly enjoyed this truly innovative adventure product. There is literally something for everyone at The Rainforest Dome. All of us loved the Cairns Zoom and I happy to say even though I'm a little scared of heights, even I managed to complete the mid section and high ropes... More

This place is fun! To be up high on a challenging ropes course with hand tamed birds is awesome! We had the whole place to ourselves so we went at our own pace and loved every bit. The staff were friendly, scotty and alex T were very friendly and helpful. We found the prices reasonable, businesses cant expand and pay... More

A thrilling experience with plenty of scary moments, especially swinging over Goliath the crocodile. Really hot the day we went so a huge challenge for our kids when they got to the high ropes. They both loved it and definitely want to go back again next trip.

Holidaying in Port Douglas my children noticed on the rear of a bus billboard advertising 'Zipline over Croc'. Well kids just wanted to go so we drove to Cairns. You will find the adventure in the heart of Cairns CBD (Casino). Need close toed shoes or need to hire for $5 a pair. It is fantastic! My three kids 6,8... More
