We went on our tour in July which seemed to be the best time to go on this tour. It was fantastic. We seen at least 7 large male Crocs and countless females and babies. Our tour guide was awesome- friendly and very knowledgeable. The food also exceeded our expectations. Overall we had the best day and it was worth every cent to do this tour.

Amazing staff, fantastic food and A LOT of wild crocodiles. We also had the opportunity to feed Angus the horse and a few of his friends. Our tour guide was very knowledgeable not only about crocs but the local flora and fauna. Our tour guide got our boat up close and personal with some of the biggest crocs we've seen. Thanks so much! Highly recommended 👌

Good family day out
Naomi_R

This was a great experience and a good day out. There were heaps of baby crocs out, but the big ones didn't emerge until the sun came out. We saw 3 females and 1 male - he was a whopper. Tom manouvered the boat so both sides could get a good view every time we spotted a croc. It got a bit breezy and cool on the water. We also went on a ride through the field to see cows, wallabies and brolgas and feed the horses. Tom was knowledgeable about the fauna and flora and history of the area. BBQ lunch was delicious (sausages, steak, chicken, fish, salads), as was billy tea & damper for afternoon tea. Tom was a great tour guide. We got picked up from our Airlie resort, it took about 40 mins to get there as there were a few more pickups after us. Best to go on a sunny day so they crocs are on the bank soaking up the sun.

Loved the boat ride up and down the river, very interesting. Our only Wish was we had seen more crocs though, we only saw 2 from a far away distance. Lunch was great and the wagon ride was great also. Damper and billy tea was also great. Great hosts and even though we didn’t really see any crocs up close, it was still a good day.
