Visit the aquarium of Tropical North Queensland
See Creatures you’ve never seen before
Your journey through the Cairns Aquarium follows a drop of rain as it descends from the tropical rainforest covered range, to join creeks, streams and rivers before travelling through the rainforest, across the mangrove flats and coral reef systems before entering the Coral Sea. 10 North Queensland ecosystems and 71 habitats have been meticulously researched so that these natural environments could be recreated in Cairns Aquarium to ensure the ongoing health and longevity of the species on display.
This gallery is a journey through the rivers of Far North Queensland and showcases the unusual shapes and behaviors of endemic species including perch, gudgeon, catfish and freshwater stone fish to name a few of the species found here.
