In July 2002, the newly built Hartley’s Crocodile Adventures redefined the wildlife park experience by offering soft adventure and quality learning activities in a truly natural environment.
Since 2002, Hartley’s Crocodile Adventures has continued to grow the wildlife collection and improve visitor facilities.
From 2015-17, the attraction underwent a series of major upgrades with new innovative wildlife displays and expanded infrastructure to support its rising visitation.
The wildlife collection now features photo ready Koalas, Wombats, Alligators, Komodo dragons, predatory birds, exotic snakes and reptiles. The infrastructure improvements included new car parking, expanded dining deck, enlarged photo area, upgraded kitchen, refurbished public toilets, croc farm amphitheatre, solar PV boat, historical displays and more.
Hartley’s Crocodile Adventures is now the largest wildlife attraction in Northern Australia and continues to be a ‘must do’ for locals, Australian visitors and overseas travellers.
