Hartley’s Crocodile Adventures is an award-winning ecotourism accredited attraction that has been carefully created on a 10 hectare World Heritage location.
After many years of habitat restoration it is now a true sanctuary, with over 2100m of boardwalks and pathways that allow you to discover the five distinct zones of this innovative wildlife park.
A multi-faceted eco-adventure facility, most areas of Hartley’s Crocodile Adventures can be explored independently, while others require special transport and/or staff supervision for safety reasons.
Hartley's Lagoon: Our No. 1 croc spotting spot! Tour the wetlands on a boat cruise and watch crocodiles, birds and the wildlife of the coastal melaleuca habitat.
Cassowary Walk: Introduce yourself to our beautiful flightless emblems, the Cassowaries, and discover why they are so important to our rainforests.
Wildlife Discovery Trail: Meet freshwater crocs, turtles and lizards and go through our tropical walk-through bird aviary. Visit the Macalister Education Centre for an insight into the local environment.
Crocodile Farm: We operate a commercial crocodile farm here at Hartley's. Take a farm tour to learn how it works and to gain an insight into how crocodile farming contributes to conservation.
Gondwana Gateway: Our newest attraction is best described as the 'bridge between two worlds'. The displays and interpretative signage explain how isolation and adaption shaped our unique fauna.
