Marine Touch Pool

Seeing is believing, and close encounters create a lasting impression. That’s why we have an amazing Touch Tank in the Cairns Aquarium where, under our Educators supervision, you can encounter unique creatures from the Great Barrier Reef.

Sea stars, sea cucumbers, carpet sharks and a host of intertidal species are keen to make your acquaintance. You may even find a shark egg or two! When you connect with wildlife, we hope you’ll want to protect them just as much as we do!
