Rainforest Dome

Want to get your picture taken with a koala? If you are visiting Cairns, then head for the spectacular Rainforest Dome, home to not just the cuddly creatures, but to birds, crocodiles, and a variety of plant species. The all weather exhibit is located on top of the Reef Hotel Casino, and is one of the biggest attractions in this city. It is also one of the most feted, having won a number of awards. The Rainforest Dome has several guided tours that take place throughout the day, and are one of the safest ways to learn about the rainforest.

  • Take the Rainforest Dome's guided tour, which includes viewing freshwater crocodiles, pythons, fish, and turtles amongst others, and you will learn why this is one of the biggest crowd-pullers in Cairns.
  • Experience the Koala enclosure at the back of the Dome, and take a photo with these cuddly creatures, feed them, and learn various things about these unique animals.
  • Take the Bird Feed out Tour, and get to learn about some of Cairns' most unique feathered creatures; take this tour in the morning, when the birds are at their most active.

The Rainforest Dome is located on top of the Pullman Reef Hotel Casino on the corner of Abott and Wharf streets. One way of getting to the popular attraction is by using a taxi. These are easily found all over Cairns, and are a convenient way of getting to the spectacular exhibit. Visitors can also opt to use a hired car; several car rental companies provide excellent services at a relatively reasonable cost. An interesting way of getting to the Rainforest Dome is by bike; these can be hired at several places in the city, and maps are widely available.
