    What to Expect
    In the morning, your coach picks you up at your hotel in Cairns or Palm Cove and drives you north for approximately 45 minutes to Hartley's Crocodile Adventures. Take in the scenery of sugar farms and the winding coastal road along the way.

    Upon arrival, head to Lilies Restaurant for your hot Aussie breakfast in the company of a koala and its knowledgeable keeper. Enjoy great conversation and a tasty meal at a table that overlooks the lagoon.

    Afterward you can see the other amazing critters at Hartley's at your leisure. Get close to Australian crocodiles during a boat ride around Hartley's Lagoon and watch them eat. Hand-feed kangaroos, wallabies and cassowaries. See a variety of Australian wildlife in a beautiful wilderness setting that recreates that animals' natural habitat.

    Spend a half day or full day at Hartley's as your interest and time allows.

    The keeper will hold the Koala. You can watch and learn about them from the keeper. You can have a photo holding a koala but you will need to pay extra for that at the park.
