What You Can Expect

Cairns Wildlife Tour of Mt Whitfield, Cairns Botanical Gardens and Cairns Wildlife Dome

View from the Cains Wildlife Dome

Make your own way to meet your guide downtown, then travel like the locals by taking public transportation to the Cairns Botanical Gardens.

At the gardens, take a moderately challenging 40-minute hike to the top of Mt Whitfield, with sweeping views over Cairns and the Coral Sea. Then see a garden display with plants used by Aboriginal peoples for food, medicine, clothing, shelter, tools and weapons. Stop at a scenic spot for a picnic lunch of fish and chips, then hop back on the bus to go downtown to Cairns ZOOm and Wildlife Dome.

Perched on top of the Reef Hotel Casino, the light-filled Wildlife Dome houses an Australian rainforest exhibit with parrots, cockatoos, koalas, wallabies, snakes, crocodiles and other critters. Wildlife shows and keeper presentations are offered throughout the day.

Your tour includes the Dome Climb, a breathtaking guided walk around the exterior of the Dome, while securely clipped into a safety line with full safety gear provided. Additional ZOOm activities can be purchased during your 2.5-hour visit to the dome.

Your tour ends at the Wildlife Dome, where you have the option to stay on your own or head to your next destination.
