We passed the council chambers and headed towards the Casino Dome.
The Casino was opposite our hotel. You can see the dome. Inside the dome is a zoo, rope courses and a zipline over the animals. As it was raining we thought this would be a good place to visit. My camera was getting worse at getting the exposure right so I used my phone.
There are many different birds all free flying around the 300 tropical plants.
Sorry that I can't remember the names of the birds. Bird bloggers Carol or Eileen might help out here.
There were many other Australian reptiles, birds and mammals there too.

If you are
crazy adventurous you can chose to balance, swing, crawl and climb over a ropes course way up near the roof of the dome

For the very
crazy brave you can fly over Goliath on a zipline. ( I wished that I was 20 years younger, I would have been crazy enough to do it.)
We returned to our hotel for a rest and to say goodbye to Far North Queensland and we were looking forward to our 2 day train trip home..
We watched the boats returning to the harbour loaded with excited tourists who had spent the day snorkelling, diving and sightseeing on the reef.
