“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.
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.”

"Two dedicated car parks are located near Reception.
Most of the park is wheelchair accessible and reasonably level. The pathways to Gondwana Gateway and Cassowary Walk are moderately steep and assistance may be required. Ambulant access toilets are located at Lilies Restaurant and at our Gallery of Living Art.
Wheelchairs are available free of charge from Admissions.
We ask visitors with assistance or guide dogs to contact us in advance to discuss possible animal welfare issues so mutually appropriate arrangements can be made.
Assistance and guide dogs are welcome in the Restaurant, on the boat cruise, the Crocodile Farm Tour and selected wildlife displays. Subject to prior arrangements, we can mind your dog and provide a Wildlife Keeper to help you access areas with sensitive or potentially aggressive animals."Mobility accessibility features:

The following are excerpts from Havewheelchairwilltravel.net:
"The cruise is accessible to wheelchair users but be mindful of the width of the entrance if you have a particularly large chair.
Wheelchair users sit at the front of the boat and family sit in the front row behind."
"Australian Companion Card is accepted.
Level pathways lead around the majority of the park. Two small areas of the park are steep and not recommended for manual chair users. These are clearly marked.
The amphitheater, where the wildlife presentations happen, doesn’t have designated wheelchair seating, however there’s easy viewing from the standing area at the back of the theatre."Hearing accessibility further information:
"During the presentations, hearing impaired visitors can use Hartley’s fact sheets which summarise the information delivered."Other accessibility information:
