I absolutely loved this experience. It felt like an outdoor classroom - we learned so much about the local flora and fauna spotted along the land and water tours. We saw crocodiles, kangaroos, many types of birds, a tiny green frog, and the friendly turkey. In the morning, we were picked up at our hotel by a comfortable bus and transferred to the site. When we got off the bus, the tour operators greeted us and shook our hands. We were served billy tea and damper freshly baked. It was delicious. We were also served a hearty lunch of steak, chicken, fish, salad and desserts but they did say they would throw away any left overs which made me unhappy to hear. It rained a bit and they provided us with ponchos for the land tour. The covered wagon on land was comfortable and so was the flat boat for croc viewing. Be sure to use the clean restrooms before boarding the boat - it is a two hour tour. Steve Watson is full of interesting information and explained so much about croc behavior. It was interesting to see the picturebook of the crocodiles after the tour. Overall I loved this adventure and would recommend it to anyone.

Had a fabulous day touring the river looking for croc's. We only got to see a couple of large ones and it was their head only as they were in the water and not on the banks like I expected. Although we did see quite a few baby ones. The lunch was fantastic well catered for. I am gluten free and they also catered for me. A big thank you to them for that. I would have preferred to have a morning tea with damper and not in the afternoon as was quite full from the huge lunch. Overall it was a great adventure and would definately recommend it to people.

Family of four (kids 11,13 years). Very knowledgeable and
funny guide. Heaps of large crocs. But the guide also told us about
other aspects of the local flora, fauna and history.
Very informative, interesting and memorable tour.
During our 3-week Queensland holiday, this was our #1 tour!

Before I say anything the guys that run this tour are so passionate and truley love what they do! But the tour itself was just alright, I have been on a crocodile tour before in australia and it was nothing like the first time, I was expecting to see huge crocodiles swimming near the boat but unfortunatly we only saw 2 females which werent that big and some babies near the shore. Because of the time of year( mating season) they arent really on the shore which makes them really hard to track down. We did learn alot of info though about crocodiles.. but it was non stop talking,,
After the tour we had a great lunch! If you like to eat you will not leave hungry! I didnt like that all the food was thrown out after though.. They had enough food for 20 people but there was only a small group of us. After lunch we went on a tractor ride in the bush..
Lets just say if you dont like learning about birds and plants for 2 hours you will not enjoy it! I was hoping to see a few snakes or something but saw one wallabe and plants that all looked the same.. I know they are trying to make it a full day thing but they could definetly do without the tractor ride. We were pretty bored near the end. Im glad we got to see a few crocs but it wasnt amazing

This tour was absolutely amazing. Booked it with Jacqui and arranged a pick up time. They were running a little late but Jacqui took the time to ring me and let me know and apologized. When we got out there, we were greeted by Steve and Scotty and the day turned from fun to amazing and interesting!! There was great humour and we saw so many different sizes of Crocodiles from massive 4m crocs to tiny little baby ones. Steve had the best eyes ever and I'm so glad we did this. We came back for lunch and there was so much of it I almost needed a nap afterwards I was so full!! Then we went for a tour with Scotty around the Goorganga wetlands and found out so many interesting facts about the area, the animals, the aboriginals and just everything!! This tour was fantastic and I wouldn't hesitate recommending it to anyone! It was funny, educational, interesting, and different from anything else the Whitsundays offers! Thankyou so much for the great day!
