Have done a few Croc tours in my time, and this time was one of the best. Stu and Steve did a great job overall. Stu on the boat trip have lots of info and saw a few big crocs and lots of babies. Steve did the BBQ and it was bloody great. Lots in offer. The wagon tour was just to fill time and maybe some more commentary would have been better. Stu then did the Billy tea and Damper, delicious again!!!
Keep an eye out for the security in the toilet . Definitely 1 of a kind system in place! Would recommend this tour for sure.

Steve great tour ! professionally run.

We saw baby crocs , not big ones. Nonetheless, that’s nature and it presents itself at its pace and time. We enjoyed it and recommend it highly

We were picked up from our hotel and dropped off at the safari, where we spent the morning on a boat searching for crocs. Great experience! Lunch was great, as was the traditionally-made damper and tea. In the afternoon we had a tractor train tour through the surrounding grounds where we saw some great wildlife. Highly recommend!

The crocodile tour was great! It was a nice break from the beach and gave us the opportunity to see a different side of the area. It was clear that Steve really knows a lot and cares about the area. Unfortunately we weren't lucky enough to see any big crocodiles but we saw loads of small ones. The barbeque was amazing as was the afternoon tea afterwards. Everyone ensured that we were given their full attention and we were very well looked after.

This would have been a good trip if we seen some larger crocs. Unfortunately to no fault of the tour guide we only seen 3 small baby crocs around 2/3 ft in length due to high tide. The food was definitely great, along with the damper and Billy tea before heading on the tractor tour. The tractor tour was just a time filler to wait for the tide and you get to see ducks, cows and some native birds, I would have definitely preferred more time on the river than the tractor ride provided. They do organise pick up and drop off at your preferred locations which is great however cannot guarantee seeing any crocs due the nature of working with wildlife!

The team were outstanding. Professional, knowledgeable and so thoughtful in their food preparation and caring for our needs . Unfortunately we only saw 2 adult crocs in the water and a few baby ones on the bank, but overall a pleasant day . My teens stil enjoyed the experience .

I was really disappointed with the trip. Firstly the driver arrived 20 minutes late and then he forgot people in airlie so we had to go back to collect them. We then went on the boat tour and only saw small crocs. I know this can’t be helped but it was extremely disappointing. The guide was very nice but he did talk for the whole trip about old stories of huge crocs and trees which really didn’t add to seeing no big crocs. The bbq was really nice. The flora and fauna tour was extremely boring and honestly a waste of time. We drove around in a field for an hour and he told us all about the plants and flowers it really was boring. Afterwards we had afternoon tea which was very nice. The trip really isn’t suited for younger people. Honestly considering how nice airlie beach is this is not worth wasting a full day for. It’s also not worth the money I think it’s really overpriced for what you get.

Lucky to see one crocodile, and a few babies. The tour guide was a wealth of local flora and fauna knowledge and very entertaining especially when throwing meat to the hawks ( black kites) who were obviously used to the scraps. He was very interesting. A very long hot day made better by the lovely bbq lunch and damper afternoon tea.
Not for kids- especially those under 5!!

We had a great day with the Steve’s and Stuart. They were funny and provided us with lots of information about Crocodiles and everything in the surrounding habitat. The Aussie BBQ was delicious and they catered for my dietary requirements which was appreciated.

We didn’t see many big crocs because of the time of year but still lots of little hatchlings to see. My favourite part of the trip was the tractor ride around the wetlands learning about the different aboriginal uses of trees.

Would recommend this trip for all ages!
