The different shades of green of the forests, the turquoise of the ocean, contrasting with the white sands of the beaches, in addition to the colorful fish and corals of the great barrier, not to mention the colors present in the Tamanian sky with the Aurora Australis and the Milk Way! Come and enjoy personally all these colors!

Established in 1886, the tropical plants here are as well established as they are rare. The gardens are home to one of only two Amorphophallus Titanums found in Australia. 

Enter the Cairns Aquarium, which connects you with 16,000 species of animals across 10 different ecosystems and 71 different exhibits ¿ while also owning the bragging rights as the only aquarium in the world to showcase wildlife from two World Heritage-listed sites.

If you're looking to get your heart rate up, Cairns ZOOM and Wildlife Dome is the place to be. You'll find it on the rooftop of The Reef Hotel Casino, combining a ropes course with a wildlife park in a world-first visitor experience. The fact you can zipline over a massive 20 feet (4.5m) long crocodile named Goliath is just one reason this park has earned a place in this list of the best wildlife experiences in Cairns.
