Hartley’s Crocodile Day Tour
From $45pp

If getting up close and personal with some of the world’s biggest saltwater crocs is what you’re after, but you don’t fancy wading through the Daintree River to find them, then look no further than Hartley’s Crocodile Adventures.

Located just 40 minute drive north of Cairns and only 25 minutes north of Port Douglas, this is an absolute must do for anyone spending a few days up north. This conservation park is not just home to crocodiles, but also other iconic Australian wildlife, such as cassowaries, snakes, and koalas. Expect a huge lagoon teeming with giant crocs as you cruise along on the complimentary boat cruise or alternatively explore over 2kms of timber boardwalk through rainforest bursting with life.

With interactive experiences ongoing throughout the day, you have multiple chances to come face to face with some of the world’s most incredible animals. You won’t be disappointed. This trip is self-drive but if you need return transfers, we can sort that out for you in a jiffy. Just hit the ‘Book Now’ button and follow-up with an email and we’ll do the rest!

There is definitely no wrong way. We recommend either taking a WHIMIT or Hop on Hop off bus pass such as Greyhound or renting a campervan with some mates and hitting the open road.

We get it. Life is all about the unexpected, especially when you are travelling.
