Hartley’s Crocodile Adventures is the place to see crocodiles up close in Tropical North Queensland. Crocodile sightings are guaranteed on our lagoon boat rides. Be amazed with our crocodile feeding presentations and our world famous Crocodile Attack Show. We have a large collection of freshwater and saltwater crocodiles here and legend has it, that the original owner Pop Evans was the first person in Australia to perform crocodile shows for the public. Eight decades later, Hartley’s Crocodile Adventures is still going strong and has expanded its facilities, wildlife and interactive experiences to have something for everyone.

Get wild on a journey of discovery. Explore Hartley’s extensive bushland settings located in the picturesque Wangetti Valley, which is in the heart of the Wet Tropics World Heritage Area, between Cairns and Port Douglas. Start the day right with Hartley’s Breakfast with the Koalas. From there, you have a whole day to enjoy and explore at your leisure. There are over 2,500 metres of boardwalks and pathways, plus exciting and educational  wildlife presentations throughout the day. The dedicated team at Hartley’s delight in imparting their knowledge with guests, sharing insights and stories about the natural world. There’s even the chance to get a souvenir photo holding either a koala, python or crocodile. Refreshments available at the on-site licensed restaurant.
