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.

“Definitely worth a visit”
Reviewed March 6, 2014

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 of these crazy humans! The staff are absolutely fabulous and so meticulous in checking your equipment and providing very clear instructions that you never gave a second thought to safety. Would definitely go back and highly recommend this attraction to both families and people who have an adventurous streak. Thank you for an awesome experience.

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 course. The zip lines are so much fun and the girls especially loved Zooming over the top of Galioth the massive croc who hangs out in the lower wildlife section. We even got up close with a gorgeous koala and I shouldn't forget to mention Jo Jo the crazy Cockatoo that thinks she is a puppy dog! If you haven't done this, then you should, if you have done this, then DO IT AGAIN!!! I know we will. Thanks Cairns Zoom for a great family day out.

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 staff on cheap entry fees. The photos we bought were also cheaper than the theme park prices so very affordable to buy.

“Fun for all ages”
Reviewed January 26, 2014

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.
