Had an amazing day at Hartley’s with my partner! Every show was enjoyable with varying diverse elements for each. Every presenter was incredibly humorous and made what could be a boring show an entertaining and extremely informative experience. The kangaroos were incredibly tame and friendly and the lay out of the park was easy to navigate and set up exceptionally well. Many stunning photo opportunities throughout the day if you are into photography! The crocodile boat cruise was an awesome experience and allowed us to view crocs in their natural habitat. Overall, it was a day well spent with knowledgeable and experienced staff that made our time at Hartley’s extremely memorable.
I recently spent the day at the park with my family and thoroughly enjoyed the experience. The park was exceptionally clean and the animals looked very well cared for. Also the staff were very informative. I've travelled from England and I would put this down as the best wildlife park I have visited, even my wife enjoyed it and she hates zoos.
Fantastic day out and value for money . The staff are friendly and informative. The shows quite captivating and interesting. We had a great full day out! Kangaroos and wallabies deserve an extra star..we spent around 2 hours in this section. These creatures are spectacular and super friendly!
We were a bit worried about what this place would be like having attended the toad racing evening at a local bar. The event was a pretty abysmal example of how to treat animals. We came very close to cancelling our planned visit as a result of this but we were glad we didn't. While the toad racing is run by a staff member it's fair to say that after visiting i would consider this to be one bad apple and not representative of the park. The park / zoo ticks all the boxes for Australian wildlife with an abundance of crocodiles, koalas, kangaroos and reptiles. The park is well laid out and there are scheduled showcases and events throughout the day which are informative and well run. Highly recommend a visit but would suggest they take a look at some of their promotional methods.
Great experience especially if your time is limited. The crocodiles are amazing and the koalas, the cutest. The staff were friendly, helpful and knowledgeable on all aspects of the facility. Recommend visiting if you just have a few days in this area
