  • Cairns aquarium is really quite nice, the tanks are really well presented. There was so much to see, the tanks were really clean and colourful. The talks were good, the hands on aspects were fab too. ...  more »
  • very impressed with the CAIRNS AQUARIUM I personally feel having travelled to most countries this beats them all in presentation quality and quality of CORAL REEF & different type of species  more »

  • Large glass-fronted tanks with well lit exhibits. The building is on several levels so must be very strong! The lighting is better than on the naturally lit reef. The restaurant has good food. Well done guys.
  • Very well thought out and laid out aquarium. Highly educational and interesting talks given throughout the day, well worth attending. Plenty of opportunities for added extras you can pay for such as behind the scenes tours etc. The turtle rehab centre looks great for example and is very reasonable. They feed the animals in the exhibits at many of the talks which is really fascinating. We zipped through in 3.5 hours but you could easily spend more time.
