Cairns boasts a wide variety of animals both native to Australia and from surrounding regions. Witness why crocodiles are apex predators and how they have survived for millions of years during a feeding show at Hartley’s Crocodile Adventures. North QLD Watersports offer a 45 kilometre tour around Admiralty Island. This is a crocodile spotting jet ski tour and is the best way to cruise the local waters of Trinity Inlet and see a few of the locals too. Another package for the adventurous at heart is another tour operated by North QLD Watersports; parasailing. Lifted high above the waters of Trinity Inlet on the Cairns Esplanade, you’ll enjoy eagle eye views of Cairns city, its stunning rainforest mountains and the glistening waters of the Coral Sea.
If crocodiles aren’t for you, the Wildlife Dome is an immersion exhibit, which means the birds and most of the animals can roam free within the confines of the large aviary enclosure. Here you can interact with wallabies and bettongs, curlews, frogmouths, kookaburras and many more animals. The Wildlife Dome also features ZOOM, a challenge ropes course at different heights within the Dome so that birds and tourists can interact. Appreciate and be educated about our native fauna while having an exhilarating experience.
