Matt was bloody funny with his commentating during the croc attack show. And the show was awesome too; I couldn’t believe Matt was standing in the water with Hagred (croc). But Matt also moved fast when he needed to!!

Hartley's Crocodile Adventures Breakfast with the Koalas
Brilliant park, adults, grandparents and children all thoroughly enjoyed it. Breakfast with koalas was a fantastic experience. Presenters were brilliant, gave us lots of interesting information but with humour. Can’t recommend this place highly enough.
