Cairns ZOOM and Wildlife Dome Entry Ticket with 1 ZOOM Activity
The Mid-ZOOM course offers an easier level of difficulty and is suitable for familiarisation and initial training of equipment and heights before head up onto the more challenging activities. It's also great for younger kids!
There's plenty to keep adrenaline pumping! The course runs 3m above the ground and has a range of elements including climbing walls, tunnels, a cargo net and swings. There's even a zipline!
Remember to look down as you make your way through the course - you'll get a unique view of the Wildlife Dome, and you might even spot a scaly crocodile friend or two!
Please note: Completion of the Mid-ZOOM is required to take part in the Hi-ZOOM. Height and age restrictions apply.
- Dome Climb
We don't mean to brag, but we're pretty sure the Dome Climb offers some of the best views of Cairns!
Walk around the external 60cm wide platform, you'll see Cairns from all angles - out to the Trinity Inlet and Coral Sea, down towards Walsh's Pyramid in Gordonvale, across to the mountains west of Cairns, and north to the beaches. It's pretty special!
Safely tethered to the rooftop with the SafeRoller belay system, allowing you to roam with both hands free - that means plenty of selfie and photo opportunities!
After head back inside, you'll be treated to a birds-eye view of the Dome, before descending … either via the staircase, or the 13m Power Jump
Please note: All participants be over 6 years of age and weigh under 120kg
- Power Jump
This enthralling component is a free fall adventure, where jump off a 13m high tower attached by rope to make a rapid descent, with a fan device ensuring a gentle and smooth landing.
