Mid Zoom Ropes Course: 

The Mid Course, is an easy level of difficulty and is suitable for young people,  and as an introduction for the Hi-Zoom.  Start out on a 30cm high training element before exploring 27 different elements including: a spider’s web, seesaw, chairs and a snakes and ladders climbing wall.  Reaching no more than 3 metres in height, the mid-course is more suitable for participants afraid of heights. 

Hi - Zoom Ropes Course and  Ziplines: 

The High Course is a medium to hard level of difficulty suitable for older children, and young and older adults alike.  Some elements of the Hi-Zoom are very difficult, high among the treetops and may take a few attempts.  Participants will enjoy crossings such as the Beer Kegs, Tyre Wire, Walk the Plank, Dodge Ball, and the Cargo net.  Ranging from 5 metres to 10metres high into the Dome, the high course is a test for those who are afraid of heights, and a testament to those who succeed.

There are four Ziplines throughout the high course with varying heights and lengths.  The main attraction is the Zip line which takes participants over the top of the Crocodile pond which houses Goliath, who at almost 4 metres is the Dome’s largest inhabitant. 

The Dome Climb:   

An easy level of difficulty - walk along internal walkways of the dome and take a bird’s eye view of the entire Ropes Course, before stepping outside to the external  platform.  The External Walk is an exhilarating scenic walk around the outside perimeter of the Cairns Wildlife Dome providing the only elevated 360° view of the Cairns City, the Pacific Ocean, Trinity Inlet, the Cairns Marina, The Esplanade, and the mountains of the Lamb Range.

Power Jump: 

The PowerJump’s, Powerfan is a highly engineered machine that is able to provide the freefall adventure of your life, in safety and without needing to deploy a parachute or strap yourself by the ankle to a bungee cord! This exhilarating element is a free fall adventure where you jump off a 13m high tower attached by rope to make a rapid descent, with a fan device ensuring a gentle and smooth landing on a trampoline.

Cairns Zoom | Rope Course Reviews


Wong Yi

The zoo itself was smaller than expected, but the fun activities and super friendly staff more than made up for it. I loved how you can be attempting to cross a slackline while a cockatoo is chilling just in front of you, on the line itself. Great fun for the whole family.
