We enjoyed our visit to the Cairns aquarium. There is lots to see and it has a lovely and calm vibe. We visit every time we are in Cairns. We especially enjoy the touch pool and the variety of different sea creatures and corals such as the Jellyfish, seahorses, and bioluminescent corals.

Informative day out. Clean and interesting. Easy parking.
Tammy Smith 2 months ago

The Cairns Aquarium was very interesting. They had heaps of exhibits, wildlife and of course fish. The feeding was very interesting. The Aquarium was clean and Covid compliant which was great. The gift shop was well stocked with interesting things to purchase.

The aquarium was great and had a diverse range of both marine life and rainforest creatures
Joshua Hampton 1 year ago

The aquarium was great and had a diverse range of both marine life and rainforest creatures. It's a good way to learn about the local wildlife that you otherwise may not get to experience at other aquariums. The aquarium is large and you won't be left wanting more.

Very short queue time to enter
Heather McMurray 1 year ago

Very short queue time to enter. The aquarium is well set and easily able to abide by COVID restrictions. Takes about 60 - 90 minutes to have a good look around. Perfect for young children, plenty to keep them engaged. Good value for money. Highly recommend.

Our experience was amazing
Hannah Exposito 1 year ago

Our experience was amazing, I have never been to such an educational, interesting and beautiful aquarium, would definitely recommend, really was a great start to my stay here in cairns! A little bit pricy but that’s just because I had a budget. Overall great!

Had a fantastic time at the Aquarium
Dianne Hodgson 1 year ago

Had a fantastic time at the Aquarium. Very friendly staff and beautiful displays. Will definitely be recommending visiting the Aquarium to everyone who comes to Cairns. The variety of marine life was spectacular and the gift shop had a huge range of items.

Simple and easy to use
Kayla Topping 1 year ago

Simple and easy to use. Tickets were available to download as soon as the purchase was made and also sent to your email address. No issues using them and was a great experience at the aquarium. A lot of animals to see and not just sea life. It took us about 1.5 - 2hrs to walk through (with no kids) and would highly recommend for all ages.

Fantastic place to spend a few hours
Alister Hanley 1 year ago

Fantastic place to spend a few hours. Lots to see and interact with. You can even just sit there and get lost in your own thoughts while watching the calming nature of the exhibits. Highly recommended for all ages. From the young to the young at heart, there are heaps to learn and do.

We booked the aquarium general entry passes for 2 x adults and 1 x toddler
Codie McDonnell 1 year ago

We booked the aquarium general entry passes for 2 x adults and 1 x toddler. The experience was fantastic with easy access for our toddler, great staff, well-maintained tanks/sea life, interactive exhibits and a very reasonably priced gift shop. I would definitely recommend this experience and will be returning when we visit Cairns next time.

Such a wonderful stunning experience
David Such 1 year ago

Such a wonderful stunning experience. We learnt so much at each exhibition, we loved the touch pool and the giant tall tank was incredible and the layout looked amazing as you wind through the layers. This was a magical experience. Also loved the wilderness section with the old gum tree. And I got to touch a starfish it was unreal. Thank you.
