We decided to try the Cairns Aquarium and it was a lot of fun! It took up about 4 hours of time so be prepared to see and do quite a bit! There were so many interesting exhibits and beautiful creatures to see. In particular, there is a large shark tank and another large tank which includes saw shark, manta rays and moray eels! Good visibility throughout. Touching the string ray and sea cucumber was a hit! They are also very clean and strict on masks/social distancing. It was a great experience overall!

Overall was a good experience in the Aquarium
Elena Chistiakova 3 weeks ago

Overall was a good experience in the Aquarium. My family and I weren't very impressed as visited many other aquariums and found some more interesting and special. However, it was informative and useful to visit it before snorkelling on the reef. Good to see a dedicated area with deadly creatures.

This is a nice centrally locates aquarium
Andrea Flamank 3 weeks ago

This is a nice centrally locates aquarium, it was a great way to spend a couple of hours away from the sun and heat! The site was clean and easy to navigate, very accessible for those with young kids. The turtles were a definite highlight. We would return!

Had a wonderful day at the aquarium
Nikala Potter 5 months ago

Had a wonderful day at the aquarium. It’s very large so would recommend to spend the day and take your time going thru as there is a lot to see. Pack a lunch or have lunch there, the food options are limited but yummy. Parking was a little limited so we arrived early. Very close walk from Cairns main township street’s so close for other food options or shopping.

Very nice aquarium with lots of different things to see
Lise Aggerholm 5 months ago

Very nice aquarium with lots of different things to see. It was very easy to find your way around and understand the division of the exhibitions. We saw one of the feedings with a very sweet and enthusiastic presenter - very nice! There was a lot of noise from children though (not the aquariums fault).

Worth a visit if you have a few hours to spare
Paul Kenyon 6 months ago

Worth a visit if you have a few hours to spare. Cairns Aquarium is not the biggest aquarium but it is quite well laid out with a reasonable number of exhibits and animals and they do have some interesting presentations during the day.

Absolutely stunning
Stephen North 6 months ago

Absolutely stunning. Such a relief to get in out of the heat into the cool air con of the aquarium! The people of cairns are so friendly! A stranger in the street pointed us to the main entrance as we were heading in via the cafe ( $4.50 for cold water is a bit over the top though). Loved loved loved the whole set up So easy to follow and if you take your time, you can learn so much. All my photos turned out blue though ... I’m guessing that was more to do with the photographer than the blue lights everywhere ... need to work out how to filter them out. Would definitely go again.

Absolutely loved the air-con in there
Stephen North 6 months ago

Absolutely loved the air-con in there! Stunning clean tanks and glass for crisp clear views of all the reef creatures. I guess the only shame was that all photos taken came out with a blue hue to them ( lighting inside) but that’s probably my inexperience behind a camera! Extremely well laid out and incredibly informative for those prepared to take their time Loved it!

We had a great afternoon exploring Cairns Aquarium
Natalie Reading 7 months ago

We had a great afternoon exploring Cairns Aquarium. Great wide space to walk through, calm music playing and so many beautiful aquariums to look at. There are lots of seats if you just want to sit down and enjoy watching marine animals. They even have a touch and feel area too. Lovely day out.

Nice way to spend some time indoors in the hot Queensland weather
Laura Shum 7 months ago

Nice way to spend some time indoors in the hot Queensland weather. Presentations were very informative and fun! Highly recommend spending a few hours walking around and exploring. Pleasantly surprised that there were not only marine life but also lots of reptiles and info on cassowaries.
