Meet some of Australia's most fearsome predators during a visit to Hartley’s Crocodile Adventures. Featuring exotic animals native only to Down Under, educational and adrenaline-fuelled shows and croc-stocked wetlands, this park offers a close-up peek into the lives of these scaly beasts.
After a midday pick-up from your hotel, sit back for the scenic drive to Hartley’s Crocodile Adventures. Here, learn about Australia's cuddling, crawling and slithering claims to fame. Animals in attendance include koalas, snakes, wallabies and beady-eyed crocodiles.
Embark on a lagoon cruise through the park’s preserved wetlands, the domain of the greatly feared saltwater crocodiles, and chat with resident zoologists about the reptile’s often-misunderstood reputation. A stop by the Snake Show ensures a front-row seat to see some of the world’s deadliest serpents, while a visit to the Crocodile Attack Show allows you to see experienced zookeepers climbing into the water with these toothy giants.
Hold your breath during tricks like the “head shake” and “death roll”, then continue on to meet other fascinating critters in the park. Before calling it a day, be sure to feed a koala and check out the diet of a cassowary – a bird weighing an incredible 9 to 10 stone (60 kg).
