Hartley's Crocodile Adventure Half-Day Tour

Select Date and Travellers
2 travellers
    What to Expect
    Situated between Cairns and Port Douglas, Hartley’s Crocodile Adventures is an award-winning eco-park and working crocodile farm dedicated to educating visitors about local wildlife. Travel by coach to the park after pickup at your Cairns, Palm Cove or Northern Beaches hotel.
    When you arrive, enjoy several hours of free time to explore the park’s five different ecological zones at your leisure. Take a narrated boat tour through wetlands, where you might spot some of the 19 resident saltwater crocodiles lounging in the sun. Stroll along the Cassowary Walk to observe these fascinating flightless birds, and admire an array of other native species like koalas, turtles, snakes and lizards from a series of elevated boardwalks.
    Live shows and feedings throughout the day offer a chance to learn more about Australia’s amazing wildlife. Don’t miss the Crocodile Attack Show, featuring massive crocs snapping food from a pole and showing off their infamous ‘head shake’ and ‘death roll.’ Tour the crocodile farm to learn how these prehistoric creatures are sustainably raised for their meat and skins. 
    See Itinerary below for a complete description of park attractions and a show schedule. After more than 3 hours of exploration, relax on the return drive to your hotel.
