What to Expect
Wildlife lovers will appreciate the up-close access to some of Hartley’s Crocodile Adventures most iconic animals. You'll take a 1hr guided tour with an experienced wildlife handler, who'll give you an in-depth insight into the park and all its inhabitants. You'll get to hold a koala and take home a photo as an adorable souvenir! You'll also get a feed a cassowary, wallabies, and other (smaller!) friendly birds. Then pat a wombat or hold an owl, before getting up close to a scaly python or big lizard. The animals available on the day will vary at the discretion of your guide.
Of course, you'll also enjoy general entry to the park, and the opportunity to take in the wildlife presentations and a 20min boat cruise on Hartley's lagoon. It's the number 1 spot to see crocodiles up close in North Queensland! Watch as they cruise quietly alongside the boat, or bask in the sun on the banks of the wetland.
The presentations include a snake show, where the handlers show off a variety of different species, from harmless pythons to some of Australia's most venomous reptiles. Then, at the crocodile show, you'll see a huge estuarine (saltwater) crocodile hand fed in a presentation and learn about Australia’s indigenous freshwater crocodiles. Witness the notorious death roll and head shake of the crocs during the Crocodile Attack Show – it's edge of your seat exhilarating.
Finally, with any extra time you have, you can take a leisurely stroll along the 2,500m of timber boardwalks and pathways on a journey of discovery through eucalypt woodlands, notophyll rainforest and melaleuca wetlands

Frequently Asked Questions
