Cairns Zome and Wildlife Doom is located on the rooftop of the Reef Hotel Casino.
This place is really set up for zip lining for families. When I was there, there were lots of excited kids waiting to go into the place.

As a senior, I was interested in seeing the animals and paid $24 AUD to see them. It took me about 1/2 hour to see everything. The ticket was good for 4 visits but since I was a cruise ship passenger, I could not take advantage of it. Hence I thought the price was high. In general, I found the price of tours were much higher in Australia than in Canada.

The wildlife dome did contain birds, fresh water crocodiles, salt water crocodile (4 meters long), koala, turtles, pythons and lizards

All the staff were really friendly and knowledgeable. The high ropes course was awesome great for a laugh with friends. The animals (especially the birds) were very cute also make sure you bring water especially on a hot day.
