Amazing. We spent hours there with lots of walking and watching the snake show and croc attack show. The boat ride was well worth the wait. Both the shows were very informative and lovely staff members. Clean facilities with great food and drinks. Will definitely be back again one day!

I would highly recommend Hartleys! It exceeded my expectations. We are a family of four (kids 4&7) & all really enjoyed it. The talks & presentations were really informative & the staff are extremely knowledgeable, friendly & funny! There is so much to see, the cruise was awesome, you could spend the whole day here it’s well worth a visit.. The food in the cafe was great too - try the crocodile!

Great day out for the whole family and the weather was perfect.

Three generations of family attended and everyone had a great time. There was something for everyone to see. The river cruise was very informative and the Japanese guide was very funny. We were able to do things at our leisure or attend any of the shows at the times provided. Staff made the day very easy.

My family and I had an absolute ball! We will be back!

We absolutely loved that they took the time to answer all questions the kids asked. The croc attack show was our favourite and was super funny. The croc cruise was awesome for all ages we found it very informative and interesting. I loved that we could a complimentary entry the next day too.

Great place with engaging and funny presenters. The highlight is the croc boat show.

We had a lovely morning en route from Port Douglas to Cairns. Great shows, photo opportunities and the croc boat show is the main attraction. Lots to do and see. We had a lovely morning and could’ve stayed longer. The presenters are funny, engaging and informative.

There’s a lot to do in Hartleys not just watching the crocs. Amazing shows and some interactive animals experience with the kangaroos and koalas.
Rhenie Yurong 5 months ago

Very efficient entry, they tell you exactly what and where to go and the time. All you need to do is to just enjoy your time. The boat ride was educational and realistic in terms of being in a river system with crocs around. Shows also education but made more realistic with some jokes.

Brilliant day out with brilliant tour guides throughout the day.
Elaine McGarrity 5 months ago

Highly recommend for a great day out, brilliant tours throughout the day with the snake show, the crocodile shows, and farm, and also the new kangaroo walkthrough which you could go up and pat and feed them. Brilliant day out. Would recommend anyone visiting in the area to go.

Great day out, fantastic family fun! We really enjoyed our day at Hartley’s.

Fantastic family fun day out. So well run! The staff were very helpful and no question was ever too much trouble for them to answer. The boat ride was incredible, seeing crocs so close was once in a lifetime. Definitely will be recommending to anyone travelling up this way! Thanks.

An experience to remember at Hartleys Crocodile farm.

Full day with informative shows that are entertaining and fun. The boat trip on the lagoon is a must-do and the park staff are so helpful. The animals are well looked after and the highlight of the place. Highly recommend and for certain be going back.

Huge, amazing range of crocodiles and other wildlife. Lots of talks and tours making it well worth the money!
Renee Jones 6 months ago

Amazing staff! Very informative, staff would be walking around the park and stop to chat and give information. Very interactive with the animals, able to hold snakes, pat kangaroos. Park is very clean and the food at lilies cafe was tasty! Great value for money!
