We almost didn't go and I'm so glad we did. It was an amazing, although hot day and getting to gold a koala was amazing, all the animals were awesome to see, so much more than crocodiles.

We really enjoyed this attraction. Watched crocodile attack which was done very professionally with good education but fun with it. Went on boat cruise and guide was very knowledgeable and again seemed to enjoy his work (passion). Would highly recommend. We certainly appreciate crocodiles much...More
Really appreciate your recommendation to fellow travellers Sheryl. And even better you've left with a better appreciation of crocodiles which are being unfairly targeted by the media lately.
We have been to Hartley's a few times and it is always a winner with the kids. We love that our tickets are valid for three days so we can have a few shorter trips with young kids without it being too exhausting for them....More
Really appreciate you taking the time to provide this information as a return visitor as it is very important for people who come back to Cairns or Port Douglas to understand that we are indeed bigger and better. Our reptile team who've been working for...More
Friends of ours live just down the road from this place and treated us to the admission. It was so much more than I expected: The price to get in AND the quality of the place! The park is laid out nicely acknowledging the natural...More
What great comments and thanks so much for taking the time out to do this. It's great now to have the Cassowaries and Emus and also to have Freshwater and Saltwater Crocodiles plus Alligators now too. And we are working to provide even more vegetarian...More
We arrived mid afternoon accepting there may not be a lot on offer. The lady at the office informed us on a number of activities still on offer to see. Croc attack, boat ride and croc feeding. Croc attack was great and well worth it....More
Many thanks for your feedback Steve. The issue you referred to has been rectified and your comment is accepted. Yes, another boat ride would normally have been offered but on that particular day on the other boat a visitor suffered from a serious health issue...More

Fabulous comments Josie and it seems that you were happy with every aspect of our visit and even more pleasing that you have gained a greater appreciation and passions for crocodiles. They need our help and support, especially at the moment.
This again on our tour and what a great day spent here. Firstly we went on the boats and after heard a Crocodile Presentation. Even got to hold 1 admittedly only a baby and it's mouth was taped. Had time to walk around the venue...More
Really appreciate your feedback Trisha. It looks like you must have been part of one of the VIP tour groups that we host. For the benefit of readers, yes we put a small section of clear tape around the crocodile snot which conforms with guidelines....More
Fantastic, unforgettable way to learn about Australian wildlife. Didn't plan to go at first because we thought it would be too touristic but very pleased we went after recommendation of our flashpackers landlord.More
Cheers Ferrymen. Yes, we are not 'touristic' because we've been around a long time and have our own personality. We are in the fortunate position to be totally independent from a lot of the 'influences' that you find at attractions where successions of managers who...More
Loved this day out (well... half a day out for us). The Crocs were amazing - and some of them unbelievably HUGE! The team at Hartleys were great fun, friendly and informative and there seemed to be something going on all the time. Really recommend...More
Much appreciated SkyJetMan. You've nailed it in a short and punchy review there. Love your comments about our team. All true for each and every one of them.
