We had a great day with the Steve’s and Stuart. They were funny and provided us with lots of information about Crocodiles and everything in the surrounding habitat. The Aussie BBQ was delicious and they catered for my dietary requirements which was appreciated.

We didn’t see many big crocs because of the time of year but still lots of little hatchlings to see. My favourite part of the trip was the tractor ride around the wetlands learning about the different aboriginal uses of trees.

Would recommend this trip for all ages!

There were Crocs! Not a good time for viewing as this is beginning of mating season and they spend more time in the water, but still saw about 10 adults and as many juveniles.
The trail ride was a little bogan but was needed to make a day of the excursion. Not a Disneyland type of attraction but good to see crocodiles in their natural environment and learn a little about their habits.

Amazing experience. Initially I was a bit worried I wouldn’t get my moneys worth as for the first 45 mins we saw only a few very small crocodiles (up to 30cm long). However, after completing the safari we managed to get to see a few over 4m long crocodiles and even got super close to Lenny (a whopping 5m long crocodile). The guides were also super kind and great. What I was very impressed with was the food provided, there was hot fish and meat and buns and salad served for lunch, and for tea we had traditional cake and tea. There was an abundance of it and the quality was great too.

A great day out for the Croc Safari!

Whist we didn’t see a huge amount of crocs, due to the time of year, it was still a great day out, with plenty of laughs and insights from Steve.

The bbq lunch was absolutely amazing!

The tractor trail ride was a bit underwhelming, but still some good insights - completely understand why it’s needed with tides etc.

Excellent day out to see the crics on Proserpine River with the guys. We managed to see a few large males and somw females. The guides knowledge was very good and he kept us all amused. Ozzy BBQ was tasty and plentiful, tea from a billy was great

This tour exceeded our expectations and more. We saw a large number of crocs and Tom was an excellent guide. We were lucky enough to witness two male crocodiles fighting just as we were returning. The size and strength of these animals is incredible- plus who knew crocs hissed and grunted, we couldn’t wait until the end of the fight but fingers crossed boofhead was the victor. Amazing lunch as well. I would give the tour 10 stars if I could. Highly recommended!!!

We had a family day out and did the croc safari. It exceeded all expectations - SO many crocs and the guides were brilliant. We were peppered with really interesting facts, fed really well, and Tom particularly had a great manner and sense of humour.

I would absolutely recommend this! Peta

Fantastically organised trip, great food and most importantly, I saw lots of crocodiles. I was picked up near my accommodation. We then had a wagon ride near a waterhole (which was a bit underwhelming). Breakfast tea was served, which was great. We then went on a 2h boat tour and saw lots of crocodiles and could get really close. I was able to take many really good pictures and the tour was definitely worthwhile! I would recommend this tour and it's also very suited for families.
