  • This is by far the best farm/zoo I have ever been to. You can get up close and personal to all the animals and the tours are good and interesting. Its a must do while in Cairns.

  • An incredible, must try experience to be able to sit so close to a feeding crocodile. The shows are very entertaining and educational with a great bunch of staff with a good sense of humour. The facility is very large and it is easy to spend hours here. Unfortunately I was too late getting food and missed out on the crocodile tasting - get in before lunch. There was plenty to see and do here and is very hard to get bored. Worth the time and money.
  • Stopped at Hartley's on our way from Port Douglas to Cairns. So glad that the wet weather held off long enough that day for us to enjoy this wonderful park! Loved the crocodile feeding session - very informative and entertaining, and made us admire crocodiles even more. Great exhibits, lots to see, and the kids got to feed wallabies as well. Was an amazing experience getting up close with a koala, baby crocodile, and a python for some great photos! The cruise was fantastic, where we got to see more crocodile feeding. Very well managed park with great staff. Would love to visit again.
