The park was excellent,I’d highly recommend a visit. The staff were very informative and very funny. The demonstrations were awesome. Only downside of the trip was the que for food at the cafeteria, was very very slow .


Great experience but wish there was a little more time between tours as it seemed rushed to make the following tour


Roy was such a lovely man! He greeted us (early) at Peppers Palm Cove and waited for us whilst we got our family of 5 organised to head to Hartleys! He gave us great insight into the day and was knowledgeable about all things Cairns & adventures. We tried to tip Roy at the end and he told us “no need, I’m happy if you’re happy” - seriously.. could he get any nicer? The bus was super clean, comfy and safe! Highly recommend this service. So easy, and great service! Hartleys was fab too.


Picked up by Anna from Beaches meet and greet. Such a lovely lady - great knowledge of the area she shared with us on our way. Gave us a map with times of shows which helped and explained it when we arrived. Day at Hartleys was awesome, so interesting and fun. Croc boat ride, croc farm talk and croc attack shows all a must see. Food at restaurant ok - probably take food next time and just grab an ice cream there. Anna picked us up and took us back to the hotel at the end of the day. A very safe driver who clearly knows and loves the area. I highly recommend using beaches meet and Greet when you are in the area. Please send our thanks to Anna, we left a letter and small gift for her at the information centre and hope she got it. V


This place is a must if you want to witness large crocs in their natural habitat jumping for food, fighting to be fed and trying to catch one of the Hartley’s local croc dudes unawares .... way better than croc show at Australia Zoo ... Your entry fee allows you to return for free in the next 2 days aswell - great value.


<p>What a great day out for anyone. Great staff,plenty to see and do. I would definitely recommend Hartleys</p>
