This triodectic dome sits on the highest point of the city, in Queen Elizabeth Park. Visitors enter a miniature world of waterfalls and bamboo bridges where they can talk to parrots or watch 50 species of birds fly around 500 plant species, in climates ranging from lush tropics to deserts. Colorful koi fish swim in an indoor pond. The 15,386 square foot conservatory also houses seasonal garden displays.

See where one of the subjects has placed his hand - naughty!
