We had an unforgettable day at Hartley's. It all started with an awesome breakfast with a Koala named Daisy and a keeper called Ricki. Then a crocodile feeding experience lead by Mario a well experienced gentleman who was passionate and caring toward the animals providing us a new perspective of Crocodiles. Our boat tour was great with Kazu guiding our boat safely around the lagoon and in time for the tour on the farming side of the business. Greg was informative and provided a balanced view of commercial farming and the importance in sustainable practice not only in crocodile farming but as a society and the environmental challenges we face now and into the future. The croc attack show with Drew was the highlight of the day. His 40 min presentation was exciting and educational. We had a great day as a family and shared some unforgettable experiences being up close with these amazing creatures. The staff show passion and dedication and it shows in their exceptional delivery of customer focus.

We had a great family day out. We had our 6 and 3 year old children who loved the adventure. Gordon our bus driver was lovely. the lagoon boat tour went for 10 mins not the 20 mins. Two laps around the lagoon would of been better. We got a family photo with a crocodile which was $26. Kids loved it. lots of crocs to see. The croc attack show was great and the keeper was funny. Definitely a great day out to appreciate these crocs. having something to eat at the cafe and watching out for the crocs in the lagoon was fun for the kids. You can get beers ice creams cold drinks hot and cold food. A souvenir shop with bits and peices. Croc handbags etc one was 4K wowsa. overall a good experience.

We have been to Hartley’s quite a few times now, each visit has been faultless.

Bringing our toddler for his very first visit, we couldn’t have asked for a better day.
The entire facility is as immaculate as i have ever seen it, the wildlife as incredible, the staff as knowledgeable, friendly and respectful as ever. Flawless.

Plan your day around the show times, we thoroughly enjoyed all of them!
A particular note of acknowledgment to their efforts to create a hygienic, covid-safe experience for their guests without impacting whatsoever on our experience.

We will be back again soon, probably in the next few weeks!

DO NOT BOOK THIS TOUR! There was no tour or transfer available to us. As a family it would have been half the price had we of rocked up on the day and paid at the gate. We were told to meet someone outside and no one was there. Our tickets were already available at the desk, however, there was no difference in the days activities to what we would have done if we just went on our own.
Hartley’s is a great place for families and was very informative but there is no way you need to pay extra for a tour that doesn’t exist. Just go to the front gate and pay directly there. It will save you over $100.

Down Under Tours offers transfers and entry combination for Hartley's Crocodile Adventures. Hartley's Crocodile Adventures is a self guided experience, they do not offer a guided option.

Had a great day visiting. The team are very informative, especially around the management plan they have helped in regards to managing crocs that are causing trouble out in society. The boat ride was a great way to be up close to the crocs.

Fantastic half day tour. Plenty of time to see the park, watch the crock attack show, go on the boat. Easy to get pics with baby croc and Koala and at reasonable prices. The bus driver was great and informative along the way up and back.

Amazing day out.
Wildlife encounter was the best we have see to date... must watch the croc attack and snake shows.
Farm tour is a must for those looking at how crocs are farmed. It is hot... so don't forget to take some water and sunscreen (there is a Cafe and food shop)
