Hartley's Crocodile Adventures Day Trip from Cairns
Generally it was a good day. Unfortunately the morning leaves before the crocodile attack show and we had to leave part way through the snake show to go on the boat show.

Plenty of time with the Koala. And a very knowledgeable keeper. All while enjoying a really good breakfast From there many attractions in the Park. In particular a cruise around the lake to view many crocodiles. Very experienced guide made it a good experience. Easy stroll to see the many exhibits, animals & shows. Plenty of time to see everything & enjoy the day

Hartley's Crocodile Adventures General Entry Ticket
The snake show was very informative and interesting. My granddaughter loved the Gondwana Gate way area, especially the interaction with kangaroos. The tour guide on boat cruise was very funny and made our tour a lot of fun. Food was good. All round value for money. We'd go earlier next time, found our selves rushing from one activity to another. Overall an informative fun day.

Apart from being too busy which makes sense during school holidays, everything is good from the staff to facilities and the experience.

Hartleys Crocodile Adventures (ex Cairns)
Every one of the shows and boat ride went like clockwork, we got to all the shows and they were great. It was good to see the animals so active and healthy. The property was well maintained and information we received from the croc farm was very informative.
