Hartley's Crocodile Adventures Info

Hartley’s Crocodile Adventures is the best place to see crocodiles and native wildlife in Tropical North Queensland. Set in the foothills of the MacAlister Range, in a World Heritage listed area, Hartley’s Crocodile Adventures is home to a range of habitat types including melaleuca wetlands, riverine rainforest and eucalypt woodland.

The attraction provides an innovative approach to viewing and interacting with wildlife. A series of timber boardwalks provide elevated viewing of wildlife as you journey through a range of natural habitats.

Hartley's is famous for its exciting and educational wildlife presentations including crocodile shows, wetland wildlife, snake show, cassowary feeding, and koala feeding.

Situated on the magnificent coastal drive between the popular destinations of Palm Cove and Port Douglas, this attraction is an easy self drive option for families. Some activities are presented more than once during the day allowing you the flexibility of a half-day or full-day visit.
