First experience up close to crocodiles and was impressed . The whole place was impressive and the information just poured out from the farming of croc's to the boat ride and feeding.It will be a lasting memory.

Very friendly and approachable staff Kind, open to questions. We had a very friendly welcome and the welcomed atmosphere continued throughout. My husband had a feed the Crocs experience with Oscar. He was brilliant, very passionate about what he does and very informative. I’d definitely recommend the feeding the crocs option

I must admit that I was reluctant to go to another crocodile farm after spending many years in Darwin and having been to Australia Zoo a number of times with the kids, but I am so glad that I did! This place was on another level and I learnt things that I had not known and also laughed as I watched the great presenters. If you miss this place then you will miss one of the great experiences of Australia. Not only that, the price is fantastic and there is no need to buy any addon's to enjoy everything including the boat cruise etc.

My husband and I visited Hartley's Crocodile Farm while on our Honeymoon in Port Douglas. We had such a great time! Plenty to see, lots of awesome shows, great food, epic staff and an overall great experience. The boat cruise was a lot of fun and the shows were both educational and funny! Thank you to Matt, Alex and all of the team....we will be back! :)

Abby K November 2021

I had such an amazing time visiting Hartley’s, this was an incredible experience I highly recommend everyone go and visit here when In Cairns. The croc shows were awesome and the boat ride around the lagoon was so cool being up close to the crocodiles habitat. You can also pay to have a photo taken with a baby crocodile or koala. Staff are very friendly and helpful. I had The best day ever here. There are also other animals like kangaroos, cassowaries, reptiles, monkeys, wombats etc. there a cute restaurant overlooking the lagoon and you can eat lunch while watching the crocs. Can’t wait to be back and visit again next time. legends. There is no reception out here, so make sure you have a shuttle bus or own transport organised. The staff can help you call a taxi if needed. They have excellent customer service always happy to help

Great day. Heaps to see. Well priced. Guides and staff were great.you could really get up close to the crocs. Went with a 4 year old and it was super easy to get around

jeannettel744 October 2021

Excellent day out. Big Croc feed is a must. Wonderful from arrival to finish. So much to see and do. Cruise was very good and guide was very informative, saw lots of crocodiles. Big Croc feed was great and would do again. All in all would recommend to anyone. It really was a great experience to feed the crocs on the big croc feed.

magsrich October 2021

Peter R September 2021

We had a great time on this cruise of the water ways and say lots of crocks big and really small. The guide was fun and very informative.

martinarN7236EB September 2021

We normally have annual passes to Australia Zoo, Dreamworld etc so we weren't sure what to expect but we thoroughly enjoyed our day at Hartleys. We arrived at 9am & we left around 4pm and we were busy the entire time. The shows are awesome, really entertaining. The boat trip was great - it doesn't matter where you sit, you have a great view. Every staff member we encountered was so friendly. We loved being able to hand feed a cassowary. The food was quite expensive (normally is at these type of places) so it was great to be able to bring our own lunch & just buy ice creams to round off the day. So much fun for our entire family aged 8 - 68!

JClare62 September 2021

I’d recommend this over Australia Zoo or wildlife HQ. It is a good size, comfortable to walk around (easy grade, shaded pathways) and even though we were there in the middle of a busy day we weren’t rushed or queuing unnecessarily. Enclosures were mostly a nice balance of natural habitat v being able to see the creatures. The gallery of living art was beautifully put together. The guides were all excellent - relaxed, funny and knowledgeable. Lovely airy cafe overlooking the lagoon. Added bonus was the birdlife e.g a pair of shining flycatchers near the cassowary enclosure and lots of hanging nests with birds flitting in and out. A bit more info on the birds of prey would have been good. I was hoping they were all rescued.

DominicMartin88 September 2021

Absolutely fantastic time here, great staff who were extremely knowledgeable and passionate at their jobs. The lagoon boat ride included in the price of admission was enjoyable and really cool to see the crocodiles feeding right next to the boat. A beautiful area and absolutely amazing to see the crocodiles up close! An absolute must to visit this place!

Diego A September 2021

It's a crocodile farm. It has other animals, such as koalas, emus, snakes and plenty of other reptiles. The shows are well presented and entertaining. The boat trip is OK and it's included in the price. It's sad that crocs have to be farmed, but apparently it has helped with the preservation of the species as there is high demand for their skin.

smallfamilyt September 2021

A great day trip. Well laid out park which has plenty to do. The short boat ride with the croc feeding demonstration was great. Every presenter was knowledgeable and every staff member we interacted with was helpful and friendly.

kimwV6244OO September 2021

Went for the afternoon with my granddaughter and started with the boat ride around the lagoon. Enjoyed the shows, which were both informative and very entertaining. Loved everything about Hartley’s and definitely recommend visiting. Great walking around seeing all the different wildlife, all well cared for and friendly welcoming staff. Food & drinks well priced and something for everyone.

This was unexpectedly very good! The park is really well set out, large and with multiple activities to watch and enjoy. The staff were all very entertaining and really seemed to enjoy the job. Very good value for money….you must visit!
