Explore the Aquarium by Twilight!

As the sun sets on Tropical North Queensland’s mountain ranges, steamy rainforests and shallow reef lagoons stir with life. Reptiles, amphibians, insects, and nocturnal fish sense the onset of dusk and emerge from their daytime lairs. Brightly coloured reef fish seek shelter in coral caves as predatory nocturnal sharks, rays, and grouper awaken.

‘Aquarium by Twilight’ takes you on an exclusive guided tour to witness this remarkable transition as day slides into sunset.


  • Exclusive after-hours entry to Cairns Aquarium.
  • Two-hour guided twilight tour through 10 tropical ecosystems, from the mountains, to the Great Barrier Reef, to the Coral Sea.
  • Learn how animals’ behaviours adapt from day into night in the Wet Tropics.
  • Come face to face with the Coral Sea’s largest night time predators — sharks, rays, groupers, and more!
  • If you wish for your infant to have a meal you will need to book a child fare.
  • Dinner Voucher option includes 1 x $50 Dundee’s Dinner Voucher per adult & 1 x $20.00 Dundee’s Dinner Voucher per child. These will be issued on arrival for the tour.
