"A crocodile burger please… and make it snappy!" Watching the crocs getting fed is not only thrilling but can make you feel hungry yourself. Leave the chicken and fish heads to the crocs and head over to Lilies Restaurant on the deck overlooking the lagoon - our award winning waterhole and feed station.

Whether you are craving a coffee, fancying a foccacia or savouring a salad, our food and drinks are generous in size, healthy and delicious. Even up the score and try some crocodile! Vegetarian? No problem. Browse to your heart’s content on the freshest veggies and salads. Group and special occasion meals are catered for by advance booking and special menus are available on request.

Our new Gondwana Grill is also available for private lunches and evening events.

Hot meals and the full menu are available from 10.30am to 2.30pm and herds of feeding visitors are a common sight any time within these hours. Some can be approached quite closely; others are very territorial about their food and can be dangerous. Breakfast runs from 8.30am to 9.45am.

Coffee and snacks are available from 8.30am to 5.00pm and a licenced bar operates from 10.00am to 5.00pm (subject to Liquor Act restrictions).

Gift Shop

The fully airconditioned Paperbark gift shop is the place to purchase genuine Australian crocodile leather goods with export permits as well as many other Australiana souvenirs.

Plush animals including the popular kangaroos and koalas, plus there are games, educational toys, clothing and quality gift lines - you’re sure to uncover something perfect for a memento here because our large, air-conditioned shop specialises in Australian and locally made quality products.

Paperbark gift shop stocks and sells Hartley's Crocodile Adventures own promotional line of coffee mugs, t-shirts, key rings, stubby coolers, etc, plus you can purchase a Gift Voucher. The gift shop is open daily from 8:30am to 5:00pm.


The free car park is directly in front of the entrance. Overflow parking is available to cope with peak periods. Spaces are reserved for disabled visitors and for coaches. Private vehicles cannot be left in our carpark overnight.

Disabled Access

Most of the park is wheelchair accessible and reasonably level. Some paths are moderately steep and are indicated as such. Assistance may be required. A wheelchair is available at reception. Disabled access toilets are located at the McAlister Education centre and at Lilies restaurant.

Hearing impaired visitors are welcome to use our fact sheets which summarise the information delivered in the presentations. Visually impaired visitors who are assisted by guide dogs will need to discuss our operational and welfare issues in advance so mutually appropriate arrangements can be made.

Visitors with other special needs should contact us before arrival so that we can accommodate your requirements.


Baby change rooms are available. Strollers can be hired for $5.00/day to rest tired little feet.
