Hi Gillian, thank you for your review.
The Cairns Aquarium operates 7 daily presentations. They operate every half an hour until 1:30 in the afternoon, and are inclusive of repeated shows. So if you miss a presentation in the morning you can catch the same one at a different time in the afternoon.
You’re also more than welcome to go backwards while inside the aquarium, as we have elevators next to the escalators that help you move between the floors. Your ticket is also valid all day so if you exit via the gift shop you can actually renter through the aquarium entrance to make sure you catch every exhibit and can most definitely revisit them. If you ever need any guidance inside the aquarium our wildlife educators and our admissions staff are more than happy to offer and help to ensure you get the most out of your experience 😊🐠
