Experience adventure at varying heights and levels of difficulty on the Mid-ZOOM and Hi-ZOOM courses with 65 elements of crossings and ziplines - including one which takes you directly over a 4 metre saltwater crocodile!

“Pleasantly surprised!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 24, 2006

Our visit to see the animals of Australia and the Rain Forest Dome was far more enjoyable for both parents and children than expected. This attraction is right in town, a real plus compared to other choices. The birds and many other creatures roam freely. For a modesrt additional fee, you can have a picture taken holding a koala ( you only get to hold it for a few seconds). Remember that although cute, koalas smell bad, won't look at the camera, and usually pee on the holder. But the photo is a nice memory! If you have the time, I think the Rainforest Dome is worth a visit.
