      I absolutely loved it! Such a beautiful and clean place. Amazing shows, who line up really good with one another. Loved the boat cruise!! But the best thing by far was The Attack Show! Such a cool croc and amazing, ballsy, trainer! He made me laugh so hard! And all I can think of now when I see a Cassowary is a Emu doing drag... Thank you so much for making me laughing my tits off!

      Traveled with our 15 year old. The croc and snake show were awesome! The presenters had such great sense of humors and really gave the crowd and informational and entertaining presentation. The bus was comfortable and not too long of a drive from Cairns. You drive right past the Sky Tram so if you do this one yourself, plan a stop at the Sky Tram. There is no water at Hartley's so bring your own or you will buying plastic bottles. They serve crocodile, which I recommend trying. The tour bus gets you there just in time for the farm tour, followed by the snake presentation, the river boat cruise at 2pm and the croc presentation. We loved this property and it was informational to learn about the farming of crocodiles to supply croc leather for handbag goods - which has eliminated croc poaching. If you have a problem with animals being farmed for their skin, then you might now like this place.

      Our entire family really enjoyed this adventure. It was very well organized, moving us as a group from one show to the next. We learned so much about the crocodiles! Don't miss the area with the roos and wallabies that are so tame- a fun place for the kids to pet a kangaroo!
      This half day tour was the perfect thing to do with all ages! It never felt crowded and the pick up/drop off from the hotel was perfect.

      Hartley's is a nice place to see Australian wildlife. It was well worth the half day and a great tour for someone arriving in Cairns early in the day and wanting to jump right in. All other tours began too early in the day before my 9 am arrival. The driver was very nice and quite knowledgeable about the habitat and local fauna.

      We did a half day, which was really worth doing. There was a lot to see: a great crocodile attack show, snake show, animal feeding, and more. There were huge crocodiles there, and also other animals to see like koalas, cassowaries, snakes, and lizards.

      I had a fantastic day here, but be under no illusions this is a farm for the purpose of breeding crocodiles for skin and meat, so if that offends you don't go. (But please do, you'll have a great day). It is not a zoo per say, but having said that it does also form the function of a zoo away from the meat production. There are also some excellent opportunities to photograph some 'wildlife' which visits or lives in and around the park, for example I took (for me) some great shots of Nankeen Night Herons. The shots of the crocs were outstanding too, both esturine and freshwater. In relatively safe and 'natural' conditions. I learnt loads too, about breeding, temperature affecting gender and so on. I missed the boat (timed) because I too busy talking to the Cassowaries, no problem, they just put me on the next boat. There was so much to do here, its not just crocs, although there were some monsters, there's koalas, birds, snakes, a lovely black headed python, beautiful frogs, roos (and loads more too) and a nice cafe for an ice cream or a cup of tea. I went off away from the crowd and did my own thing, watching the big male crocodiles having a spat, sorting out breeding rights. It was really nice, not to busy. They had some staged shows too, which the kids loved. I liked them too, with a Steve Irwin (rest his soul) type patter. It was such good value for money, I wish I could have spent longer here. From a wildlife perspective I was like a kid in a candy shop, with wild birds, rainbow lorikeets, and welcome swallow swooping in. The lady on reception was nice too, and we had a short chat about frogs. I did an expedition to Rio Mazan in Ecuador to help with frog study in the 80's. Hartley's was well organised (if a little contrived, like many of the Australian events I've been on), but I enjoyed it. I would go again, and so should you too.

      My very full half-day trip to Hartley's. The crocodile feeding on the riverboat tour was excellent, as was the attack show. The tour of the crocodile farm was interesting if a little short. And Hartley's also has a number of other animals on site, including koalas, cassowaries and exotic birds. I would strongly recommend visiting this place if you have a spare half day in Cairns
