Good family day out
Naomi_R
, May 2022
This was a great experience and a good day out. There were heaps of baby crocs out, but the big ones didn't emerge until the sun came out. We saw 3 females and 1 male - he was a whopper. Tom manouvered the boat so both sides could get a good view every time we spotted a croc. It got a bit breezy and cool on the water. We also went on a ride through the field to see cows, wallabies and brolgas and feed the horses. Tom was knowledgeable about the fauna and flora and history of the area. BBQ lunch was delicious (sausages, steak, chicken, fish, salads), as was billy tea & damper for afternoon tea. Tom was a great tour guide. We got picked up from our Airlie resort, it took about 40 mins to get there as there were a few more pickups after us. Best to go on a sunny day so they crocs are on the bank soaking up the sun.

We had an amazing trip out on the river, saw heaps of baby crocs and some decent sized older ones also , Steve was incredible informative and made it a really enjoyable experience. An awesome BBQ lunch everyone enjoyed and then a trip on the tractor pulled carriages looking at the wildlife finished off the adventure . Highly recommended.

Loved the boat ride up and down the river, very interesting. Our only Wish was we had seen more crocs though, we only saw 2 from a far away distance. Lunch was great and the wagon ride was great also. Damper and billy tea was also great. Great hosts and even though we didn’t really see any crocs up close, it was still a good day.

Best hot summer day
Cassandrajayne_R

We had an incredible day at the crocodile safari. It was incredibly hot, but we still got to see crocodiles in the wild, including a young one. The lunch was great, plenty of food and plenty of iced cold water included in the price with other drinks available for purchase. The staff were so knowledgeable and helpful, definitely want to do this again next time we are up that way.

The heat making it much harder to find animals, and timing of the tide meant we sat on the boat without seeing anything for quite a long time

Thanks for the feedback Meggy. We attempt to provide our guests with a complete experience in a mangrove environment rather than just have them "sitting on a boat". Kind regards Steve Watson

The tour guides and bus driver were fantastic. Very welcoming towards myself and my kids. BBQ lunch was amazing. Because we went in December and it was hot plus during mating season we did t see many crocs. The tour guides tried hard to find more. Their personalities and professionalism was well worth the money. I will go on this tour again on cooler months. Highly recommend

What a fantastic start to our holiday! My wife was looking forward to this and it didn't fail to disappoint! Mark, a real-life Croc Dundee, obviously has a great passion for crocs and a broad knowledge of the local habitat. We only saw a few crocs but hey - this is a natural habitat, not a zoo! A great river tour was followed by a lovely BBQ lunch in the camp cooked by Ian who was also an expert at the Billy tea and damper! The whole day experience was something we would love to do again and would certainly recommend to anyone who loves a combination of wildlife, nature and a great day out!

The Tour was fantastic! The two tour guide gents were excellent and made the whole experience very memorable. We saw plenty of crocs including baby crocs and other wildlife. The lunch setup and afternoon tea was delicious and filling. The tour operators were very entertaining and knowledgeable of the crocs and surrounding environment and wildlife.
