Function and Event Spaces
At Cairns Aquarium we have a number of different locations available for a wide range of functions and events, from the small and intimate to the large and extravagant. No matter what the occasion, we have you covered.
We have five unique venues
You are spoilt for choice with our five unique venues, each with their own highly themed habitats, animals and visual backdrops that makes your experience so memorable.
Cairns Aquarium "Ocean Room"
For a surreal, extra sensory dining experience nothing compares to the Ocean Room. Surrounded by sharks, stingrays and the tropical beauty of the fish of the Coral Sea that inhabit the 1.8million litre oceanarium this is the most stunning underwater backdrop imaginable.
Capacity: 50 Seated 80 Cocktail.
Cairns Aquarium "River Room"
A function space as rare as the species that live here, the River Room is home to the River Monsters. Pre-historic Freshwater Sawfish, giant WhipTail Rays, Barramundi and Mangrove Jack will gracefully glide past the large 7 metre viewing panel while you dine.
Capacity: 60 Seated 100 Cocktail.
Dundee's "Daintree Deck"
The outdoor Daintree Deck recreates the beauty and diversity of the Daintree Rainforest. With uninterrupted views of our shark tank this really is where the reef and rainforest meet to eat.
Capacity: 120 Seated 170 Cocktail.
Dundee's "Reef Room"
Dine in air-conditioned comfort in the Under the Pier themed Reef Room with its own 13.5 metre, 70,000 litre shark tank.
Capacity: 80 Seated 130 Cocktail.
For larger groups or exclusive use we offer both the Daintree Deck and the Reef Room together. Combine the magic of the reef and rainforest whilst you enjoy our unique regional fare.
Capacity: 200 Seated 300 Cocktail.
