Project Description

The Cairns Aquarium has been developed to provide a world class venue for seeing and interacting with the incredible plants, animals, and habitats found only in Australia’s Wet Tropics, a region which borders two World Heritage listed environments:

The first newly built aquarium in Australia for 17 years is set over 10,000 square metres. It is home to over 15,000 aquatic animals, fish, plants, and other organisms, all housed within 71 live exhibits.
