The Cairns Aquarium has been developed to provide a world class venue for seeing and interacting with the incredible plants, animals, and habitats found only in Australia’s Wet Tropics, a region which borders two World Heritage listed environments: The Daintree Rainforest and The Great Barrier Reef. Protecting and conserving the biodiversity of these World Heritage listed ecosystems is the vision and the overriding passion of our founders Daniel Leipnik and Andrew Preston and this commitment underpins our business philosophy and team culture.
We inspire people all over the world to respect, protect and conserve the Great Barrier Reef and the Queensland's tropical rainforest.
We do this by sharing our passion for what we do - educating and imparting new knowledge to every visitor about the diversity of the Tropical North Queensland habitats and the ecological value of the species that live there.
For nature and the environment, for guests, for the community we live in, for our stakeholders, for our colleagues and employees.
Doing the right thing, being honest, doing what we say we will, leading by example, being proud of what we do and how we do it.
Making a difference, going above and beyond, giving back.
Being passionate, inspiring wonder, creating desire, making connections that matter, being one team with one vision.
Being happy, delighting guests, creating positive memories.
Not accepting the status quo, searching for better ways, being ahead of the pack.
