  • This place is absolutely great for the whole family. We started with breakfast with koalas. The breakfast was really good full English breakfast plus cereal, fruit, coffee, tea, and juices. A handler brings around a koala and tells you all about koalas and lets everyone pat it and take a picture with it. The boat ride to see crocs was great, and we fed cassowaries and lots more. The croc show and snake show were terrific. We spent the entire day there with so much to do. The best part is that all the guides are very knowledgeable and the employees clearly like their jobs and out in a tremendous effort to make this a worthwhile family adventure. A must-do in northern Queensland.
  • Excellent day out! For starters your entry allows you to come back over three days. There are plenty of talks and shows on throughout the day and the main attraction, the croc show, was very informative, funny and exciting. We got to see a tonne of wood animals native to area, most of which you can get pretty close to. Best of all you get to see plenty of animal feeding sessions, some of which you can join in with. A great family day out.
  • We visited in April this year. What a terrific place. Bruce the Croc, the small speciman we could handle (soft as silk on the underbelly). Good food and drink, the boat ride on the lagoon, nothing but fond memories.
  • Well worth visit to learn about and see crocodiles up close without ending up being their lunch.has an array of wildlife from snakes to casawarries. Kangaroos will let you pat them all day. Great park for adults and children.
  • Very knowledgeable staff i cant realy fault this tourist attraction all animals/reptiles were well looked after boat ride was wonderful highly reccomend paying hartleys cairns a visit
