Many of the folks on our cruise ship opted for excursions out to The Great Barrier Reef but we chose to go inland a bit and search for crocodiles. Australian crocs are big. In fact the salt water ones are enormous and we didn't have far to go to find some. Before we went on the river, we took a... More

Great day, lovely food, friendly knowledgable staff. Didn't see lots of crocs as too warm for them to be out of the water but our guide went out of his way to find some for us

We were picked up from our Resort with a very well air conditioned bus with a friendly driver. We arrived at the ranch in less than 30 minutes to a very "Aussie Outback" set up, which set the scene perfectly. We were instantly greeted by two lovely guides, Ian and Mark. Both very well knowledgeable about the outback, and were... More

It is an enjoyable trip, but not for the price you pay. I think this would appear more to overseas visitors. Good lunch is included, but not drinks. As you are looking at animals in the wild, make sure you research when is best to see them, as you might not see any.

We did not see many adult crocodiles due to the hot weather, but Mark was very professional and told us lots of knowledge about crocodiles and the history of the area. The BBQ lunch was delicious and we loved the billy tea in the afternoon. Although the weather was really hot, but we have a wonderful day! This tour is... More

What an enthusiastic guide! We went down the river at 40 degrees so most crocs were cooling down in the water. We did see some young crocs, and the noses of a few bigger ones. But during the whole trip we received so much interesting information, we thoroughly enjoyed the river journey. Afterwards we went on a jungle tour and... More

The guide knew exactly what he talked about and was very professional. The other staff member provided us with delicious food (more than I expected) and everyone seemed to have had a great day. The day trip was simply just great! I would recommend it to anyone BUT not for families with very small children since it's important to stay... More

Mieletön kokemus! Aluksi vietimme 2 tuntia prosperine- joella krokotiilin luontaisessa elinympäristössä. Näimme useita pieniä ja pari valtavaa krokotiilia. Aamuteen jälkeen menimme suolle. Metsikkö ja suo oli kuin sadusta. Kuulimme asiantuntevia ja mielenkiintoisia luentoja alueen eläimistä. Kierroksen jälkeen oli bbq lounas joka oli herkullinen. Retki oli ehdottomasti rahansa arvoinen! Parasta koko kohteessa upeista saarista, riutasta ja rannoista huolimatta. Trip was magnificent!... More
