Whitsunday Crocodile Safari including Lunch

    What to Expect
    Take a walk on the wild side with this full-day Whitsunday crocodile safari! After pickup from your Airlie Beach, Cannonvale or Proserpine hotel, travel inland along estuaries and backwater channels to your nature base for the day. 

    Glide along the gentle currents of the Proserpine River on a 2-hour cruise, keeping an eye out for wild saltwater crocodiles lounging on the banks or lurking just beneath the water’s surface. Your river guide will point out other native wildlife along the way, including lizards, turtles and exotic birds. You’ll also explore the wetlands on a tractor-pulled wagon ride for a different perspective. Enjoy fresh air and sunshine on the open-air ride as your guide shares secrets of the landscape. 

    Experience customs of the Australian bush and wetlands with a variety of activities, including a Queensland mudcrab capture and traditional ‘bush tucker’ featuring billy tea and damper bread. Midday, enjoy a freshly prepared Aussie barbecue among the secluded landscape teeming with wildlife. After your day in the wilds, the tour concludes with drop-off back at your hotel.

    If you come to Airlie beach, you have to do this. Or you would be missing on half the fun. Knowledgeable, comfortable ride, spectacular. Thanks for looking after us. Bonus: the food was great, catering for meat lovers and vegans!
