It is about a 50 minute drive from CBD of Cairns to get to Harley's. They have programs throughout the day which are interesting. You can get your picture taken with a koala and for 15 dollars you get to feed the fresh water crocodiles with a long bamboo pole and a piece of chicken attached by a string, two times. Hartley's has a good selection of Australian animals, you can also feed kangaroos as well. We had a great time and would recommend it to everyone who likes animals.

It's a great place to visit. we had a fantastic experience at Hartley. Recommend not to miss this place when you are in Cairns
Koalas, Crocs & Kangaroos OH MY!
Janice_W, Dec 2022
Holding a Koala; petting the kangaroos, the crocodile show & seeing the exotic creatures made this a must see memorable adventure!
We took a tour which left...
Kerry_T, Dec 2022
We took a tour which left us rushed. We didn't make it in time to explore the farm area. We had to be on the boat by 3.40pm so we missed part of the crocodile attack show. We didn't see any crocodiles on the boat ride. The driver said it was because the crocodiles are so well feed and not hungry. By the time the boat returned we had missed part of the next talk. So we went to look at the kangaroos and got told they wanted to close that area. . We got told you can get your photo taken with an animal then pat the koala after the photo. That was not true. We got rushed so badly it was extremely rude. The staff were impatient and rude. We had around 3 seconds take the photo n rushed away.
A great day out.

A good 1/2 day out. Nice park and the guy we had on the boat trip on the lake was great, very funny. Does not require a full day, 5 hours more than enough time. Would recommend.
Generally a good day
David_J, Aug 2022
Generally it was a good day. Unfortunately the morning leaves before the crocodile attack show and we had to leave part way through the snake show to go on the boat show.
Kelly the Koala was so exciting to see and hold!
Lynelle_B, July 2022
We enjoyed riding the boat and seeing the crocodiles and the other animals on display there but the highlight was holding Kelly the Koala for our pictures.
Very close interaction with animals, kids loved it.
Behnam_B, June 2022
Apart from being too busy which makes sense during school holidays, everything is good from the staff to facilities and the experience.
Fun day trip
Dianne_S, June 2022
Good fun, something to do with the kids. Watched the snake show, the croc attack show, and went on the boat to watch the crocs being fed.
Snapping crocodiles
Katrina_G, May 2022
Crocodiles were amazing! The staff were quick to respond after my niece had a fall. A great place to visit.
It was great! Thanks so...
Jai_R, Apr 2022
It was great! Thanks so much. We had lots of fun. Especially kids loved crocodile feeding, crocodile and snake shows. The girl who did the crocodile show, did it amazingly. Wow experience for sure!
Defective mic and aircon
KAUSTAV_C, Apr 2022
The tour was good overall. The microphone in the tour bus was horrible - no one could hear anything the driver announced. And the inside temperature was freezing cold with an out of control aircon.
Thanks for everything, I...
Daniela_V, Mar 2022

Excellent - highly recommend
Curtis_F, Dec 2021
Excellent!! Great staff - very friendly and keen to make you have a great time! Highly recommend, just Gondwana section is under renovation at the moment and not much to see in that part. definitely all worth the money. Thanks so much guys, you really took care of us and made it special for our daughter
Wow 👌
Mariette_V, Nov 2021
This was so much more that we expected. It is not just crocodiles, there is so much more. We learned so much.

Worth doing
James_B, July 2021
The park is worth checking out, holding and getting a photo with a freshwater croc was the highlight for me.
Crowed less
Michael_M, July 2021
