Here, 200 animals—including a large saltwater crocodile named Goliath—are housed in a 20-m-high (66-ft.) glass dome on the rooftop of the Pullman Reef Hotel Casino. Birds soar overhead, and you can get up close with koalas, lizards, frogs, pademelons, turtles, and snakes. There are wildlife presentations and free guided tours throughout the day. Koala photos are A$15 (pay when you buy your entry ticket).
