Hartley’s Crocodile Adventures

Discover one of Australia’s best croc shows that occupies a beautiful natural setting surrounding a 2-hectare lagoon (home to 23 estuarine crocs) and fringed by melaluca (Paperbark) and bloodwood trees.

Watch monster crocs being hand fed at 11am and see the ‘croc attack’ show and the ‘death roll’ during the 45-minute performance at 3pm.

There are also croc- and snake-handling opportunities as well as tours of the croc farm at 10am and 1:30pm. You can even feed a huge croc yourself using a long pole during the personalised Big Croc Experience.

You can also see a snake show at 2pm, Cassowaries being fed at 9:30am and 4:15pm, and koala feeding at 4:30pm.

Hartley’s Crocodile Adventures is located 40km (24mi) north of Cairns and 25km (15mi) south of Port Douglas.
