Collected from Airlie Beach , it's about a 30 minute drive to the safari. We visited approx 3 weeks after the Cyclone so saw the damage this has caused along the way, we also saw the most amazing rainbows as the weather was still affected .

An amazing trip considering Cyclone Debbie hit the area heavily just 3 weeks ago. We had 2 hours on the Proserpine River and saw lots of crocs from hatchlings to 4m males. The afternoon had an adapted land safari where we saw wallabies, birds and a tree snake who was 'encouraged' down by our guide Mark. BBQ lunch included sausage,... More

I hope you enjoyed your "Post Debbie" visit to the Whitsundays. Come... More

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.
