Cairns Wildlife Dome 23/11/10

23rd November 2010

Cairns Wildlife Dome

The Cairns Wildlife Dome is an all-weather wildlife exhibit enclosed by a 20 metre high glass dome on top of Cairns’ Pullman Reef Hotel Casino.  

As Zoo's go, this one would be suitable for small children as it is relatively small and easy to get to for visitors.  Most wildlife species within the dome are fairly common, and ones you could often see in the wild in the local Cairns and surrounding areas.  

I did like that it only has Australian Animals within this Zoo, so it is a great place for international tourists to come to see some Australian favourites.

I was surprised to see Crocodiles in the Wildlife Dome, and had a little chuckle, imagining them getting them into the zoo in the elevator :)
