Hartley's Crocodile Adventure Half-Day Tour
The grandies and ourselves enjoyed the day but the tours and shows were too close in time and had to rush to all the shows. To have pictures taken with koala and snakes had to run to get there in time, then missed the start of the croc show. Also not enough seating around park and show for disabled and oldies. Fix this and it'd be perfect.

Hartley's Crocodile Adventure Half-Day Tour
Great trip. All the talks were very educational and told things how they are without dressing things up. Boat cruise was great and the high light of the day was the crocodile attack show. Great variety of animals that are very well set out

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.
