Once-in-a-lifetime chance to pet a Koala!
Nov 2019 • Couples
Shuttle was punctual. Driver was nice and very informative. Breakfast was tasty - a very large breakfast! Buster the Koala was beautiful and so sweet. He loved getting back pets, and it was so amazing to feel a Koala's soft, fuzzy coat! You get the chance to get right up next to them. The rest of Hartley's was also interesting. We saw tons of crocodiles on the boat tour, including several jumping out of the water and snapping to feed. Such a great experience - would recommend!

I went to hartlys crocodile sanctuary this week ,while visiting palm cove QLD for a 5 day break from melbourne ,what a fantastic experience this place was ,its eco friendly ,and into the conservation of native australian wildlife ,the koala experience was wonderful, and l also had the luxury of holding a baby koala ,there is a sectioned off part of this very natural sanctuary, where the kangaroos roam freely and you can interact and feed them ,the children all loved feeding them carrots and apples and touching them ,the two crocodile shows with a croc named hadgrid was both interesting to watch and very educational as well about these amazing animals ,the boat ride around their river was terrific, we saw crocs sunbaking ,and the guide fed one as it leapt out of the water ,there is a good eating area for lunch and drinks,and its not expensive either ,l chose a package to be picked up from my hotel and taken back, l think its worth a visit and great for children, to interact up close with our native wildlife

Had a wonderful breakfast and private time with the Koala Bears. Able to pet and interact with the little guys. All the staff at Hartleys are wonderful and the park is so well mapped out. Very clean and family friendly. Highly recommend.

Breakfast with the Koala....such a wonderful way to begin your morning!
I must say that Breakfast with the Koala at Hartley’s Crocodile Adventure is well worth the cost if you have children that are interested in animals. My son had a koala theme birthday party in the United States and this adventure was our culminating activity. Rarely can you find a koala in the United States because of the eucalyptus they require is native to southeastern and eastern Australia. Thus, this breakfast with Yoshi (the koala) was a real treat. We met the wonderful keeper Rickie prior to having our breakfast and she explained about the program. She then allowed us to interact with Yoshi. It was such a wonderful experience for us to see the koala up close and have an opportunity to touch the fur. Next, we had breakfast which we really enjoyed. Breakfast consisted of eggs, bacon, sausage toast, croissants, fruit, juices, coffee, and a variety jams were available. The food was plentiful and we enjoyed our meal. Please note the breakfast is not fancy but it definitely worked for us.
The keeper then provided us with information about Yoshi and we had the opportunity to take photos with him. Please note that you will not be able to hold this koala but for an extra fee you can hold a koala and take a photo at another location in the park. I truly enjoyed this experience with my son. We plan to read a few books about koalas to compliment our visit. Thanks to the keeper Rickie for signing my son’s birthday book and thanks for providing such a wonderful adventure.
Please note that if you decide to visit without a car book your transportation via the tour company because we could not get any Internet connection thus using Uber would be a challenge.

Excellent Morning!
My husband and I had such a great experience at Hartley’s Crocodile Farm, breakfast with Forest the koala was an excellent start to the day. The food and drinks provided were better than we expected and a nice view of crocodiles in the lake while we ate. If you’re heading to the farm this breakfast is a lovely little addition.
