Cairns Aquarium


Get up close to the species and eco systems of Tropical North Queensland!

On your journey, follow a drop of rain as it descends from the mountainous waterfalls into the freshwater rivers, flowing through the rainforest, across the mangroves into the shallow lagoons of the Great Barrier Reef and finally into the depths of the Coral Sea. Discover animal presentations, habitat talks, a marine touch pool and daily shark and ray feeds.

Learn about the biodiversity of life on the Reef and Wet Tropics Rainforest, on a personally guided behind the scenes Marine Life Encounter Tour including a visit to see the animals being cared for at the Turtle Rehabilitation Centre and the opportunity to hand feed our gentle Cownose Rays.

By Twilight, join Cairns’ best evening experience on an exclusive guided after hours tour with a wildlife educator, gaining an understanding into the animals’ nocturnal behaviours. Conclude your tour with an optional 3 Course dinner at Dundee’s Restaurant which has a stunning sea life backdrop.

Butterfly Sanctuary


The Australian Butterfly Sanctuary is the largest butterfly flight aviary and exhibit in the Southern Hemisphere.

Located in the heart of Kuranda, only a short walk from Skyrail and the Kuranda Scenic Railway station, our sanctuary is home to over 1200 butterflies from a variety of species.

In the current climate, the safety of our guests, team and the public is our priority. The numbers of daily visitors will be limited, social distancing guidelines will be enforced, and guided tours may be limited due to the current Government guidelines.

Now, more than ever, we need the community to support us and we hope we can offer some much-needed adventures in your own backyard. T
