GREAT PLACE TO SEE CROCS

Nice park with great Crocs show. Great to be able to touch the koalas and feed the kangaroos. The trip on the boat was fun and the rangers know a lot.

We bought a family pass which actually entitled us to go for three days in a row had we wanted to so great value for money. We ended up doing one morning and one afternoon on two separate days. The boat ride and croc feeding were amazing, the kids fed cassowaries and wallabies/kangaroos. The croc attack show and snake show... More

When planning family vacations, it’s always difficult finding activities our whole family can enjoy together. To be honest, when choosing to go to Hartley’s Crocodile Adventures, we weren’t sure if it would appeal to everyone (dad, mom, brother - 17 years old, and sisters - 4 years old). Upon leaving, however, it was clear that EVERYONE had a GREAT time.... More

We had a very enjoyable day at Hartleys, arrived at 10.30 and were kept fully entertained until 4.30, Really enjoyed the lagoon cruise and croc show. The staff were very knowledgable and made the experience a real adventure. Great value as the $37.00 entry fee could be reused over a 3 day period, if you did not fit it all... More

My husband and I had a wonderful day at Hartley's. We found it to be relaxing, informative and highly entertaining. The park itself is lovely to walk around. Enjoyed all the shows and laughed out loud at the humour and fun of the keepers. The highlight was the boat ride and crocodile feeding up so close - at one stage... More

This is our second visit here and It doesn't disappoint. This shows how deceptively quick crocodiles are as ambush predators! There is also a chance, should you wish, to get "up close and personal" with snakes (today it was pythons ranging in size fro about 2 feet to 8 feet like long). There are a range of shows and a...

This is an excellent place to visit and I strongly recommend you do not miss it. We were absolutely knock out at the whole set up. From the lagoons with floating and sometimes jumping crocodiles to the visit to the farming area. Our highlights were the lagoon cruise and the crocodile feeding show and the thoroughly knowledgeable staff.

Excellent place to visit, not like a zoo, grab a programme before you go to make the most of the shows
