WHAT TO EXPECT

Get your adrenaline pumping with this ultimate big croc experience at Hartley’s Crocodile Adventures. You'll enjoy an in-depth look at the world of crocodiles with a 45min personalised guided tour from an experience Hartley's crocodile handler. However, the highlight is the chance to pole feed a huge saltwater crocodile from a safe platform. It's an exhilarating experience as these massive creatures launch themselves metres out of the water and chomp down on the tasty snack. On the other end of the scale, you'll also get to hold a juvenile croc for a souvenir photo. They're less snappy and more cute!

 

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. Check out cute and cuddly koalas, see adorable wallabies and wombats, or visit the cassowaries with their deadly talons and prehistoric appearance.

    FAQ

    There are two dedicated car parks are located near the Reception. Most of the park is wheelchair accessible and reasonably level.  The pathways to Gondwana Gateway and Cassowary Walk are moderately steep and assistance may be required.  Ambulant access toilets are located at Lilies Restaurant and at our Gallery of Living Art.

    Wheelchairs are available free of charge from Admissions. Please contact us before your visit to book a wheelchair.

    We ask visitors with assistance or guide dogs to contact us in advance to discuss possible animal welfare issues so mutually appropriate arrangements can be made.

    Some of our animals may view your dog as ‘prey’ or a ‘predator’.  Large crocodiles may try to attack your dog through the fence, while wallabies and cassowaries will flee in a panic possibly causing injury to themselves.

    Assistance and guide dogs are welcome in the Restaurant, on the boat cruise, the Crocodile Farm Tour and selected wildlife displays. Subject to prior arrangements, we can mind your dog and provide a Wildlife Keeper to help you access areas with sensitive or potentially aggressive animals.
