Hartley's Crocodile Adventures
Hartley's Crocodile Adventures Review
Hartley's houses thousands of crocodiles as well as koalas, wallabies, snakes, lizards, southern cassowaries, and tropical birds in natural environs, accessible via boardwalks and boats. A lagoon cruise, on which keepers feed big crocs at close range, is included in your entry price. There are daily cassowary and koala feedings, and croc and snake shows. Most thrilling is the Big Croc Experience, which is held daily at 10:30 and 1 (book 24 hours ahead). It's your chance to handle squirming baby crocs and pole-feed gigantic ones, and includes a guided tour and commemorative photo. Lilies Restaurant showcases local delicacies, including crocodile, of course. If you don't feel like driving, Down Under Tours (07/4035–5577), Tropical Horizon Tours (07/4035–6445), and several other operators include Hartley's on their day-tour itineraries.
