  • Overview & Itinerary


    At Hartley’s Crocodile Adventures in Cairns you can see a range of native flora and fauna, including tropical birds, reptiles and insects. Spread over 2100 metres of timber boardwalks and pathways that lead to dense woodlands and rainforests.

    With the Hartley’s Crocodile Adventure Half-Day Tour, cruise through the Melaleuca wetlands and see saltwater crocodiles lazing around the banks. Don’t miss the Crocodile Attack Show, where these species come into action and entertain you with their notorious head shake and death roll.

    Explore the rest of the park with its abundance of wildlife, including water birds, turtles, wallabies and cassowaries.


    You will be picked up from your hotel in Cairns and taken to Hartley’s Crocodile Adventures. It is the best place to see crocodiles in Tropical North Queensland and observe them in their natural settings.

    In the park, your time is at leisure but a suggested schedule is as follows:

    Snake Show
    Australia is known for some of the most dangerous snakes. Experience the beauty, mystery and diversity of these venomous snakes as a guide tells you about how you should behave around them and what should you do if you are bitten

    Wetlands Cruise
    Enjoy a lagoon cruise through the ecologically significant Melaleuca wetlands, the territory of the saltwater crocodile. There are 19 crocodiles ranging in size from 2.5m to 5m, cruising the waters, enjoying afternoon siesta on the banks or building their nests. Observe how they are alert and aware of the surroundings.

    : Crocodile Attack Show
    See the notorious head shake and death roll of a huge crocodile and don’t miss the opportunity to hold a crocodile for a photo (own expense).

    Cassowary Feeding
    See cassowaries in their natural surroundings and take an easy, relaxing walk through the Cassowary Gardens. Also, take pleasure in feeding these giant birds.

    Koala Feeding
    Before heading back to your hotel, meet the adorable Koala beers and cuddle them while you feed them fresh gum leaves.
