Wildlife Discovery Trail
Crocodiles have always been the main attraction at Hartley’s but they cannot exist alone. They depend on extensive coastal wetlands for food and shelter. So do many other creatures.
A casual, self-guided stroll along the Wildlife Discovery Trail boardwalks will introduce you to our two species of crocodile, the Estuarine (saltie) and the Freshwater, and to all sorts of other animals and plants that share the crocodile’s world.
Marvel at the size and power of our big mature male crocs. There are brilliant birds, flashing fish, lazy lizards and timid turtles - all of which are found locally in the wild alongside the crocs. Some are brightly coloured while some others will take all your powers of observation to penetrate their camouflage.
The wildlife amphitheatre is the heart of the park. Don’t miss our daily highlights - the Snake Show at 2.00pm and the Crocodile Attack Show at 3.00pm.
No Australian wildlife park is complete without Koalas. These are Australia’s great wildlife ambassadors and a favourite with visitors worldwide. They spend most of the day fast asleep. Come and share the excitement when they wake up for their afternoon feed at 4.30 pm.
