The Whitsundays are a popular holiday destination renowned for their relaxed, tropical island atmosphere and proximity to the Great Barrier Reef. However, not every Whitsundays holiday is all coral and beaches, there are actually a number of other unique experiences you can enjoy while visiting this magical part of North Queensland.
The Whitsunday Crocodile Safari is a fantastic way to incorporate some of North Queensland's more notorious wildlife into your holiday. In fact, you can still enjoy a relaxing island holiday while adding some adventure to your stay with this full day tour departing Airlie Beach. An eco tour like no other, the Whitsunday Crocodile Safari is, as its name suggests, an exciting adventure spotting the area's famous resident crocodiles, all in the safety of a guided tour.
A full day tour that incorporates a number of activities, Whitsunday Crocodile Safari visits the local wetlands and estuaries that reach inland from the coast, all the way to the Proserpine River. Home to a wide range of native mammals, birds, marine animals and reptiles, these waterways are the natural habitat of the estuarine crocodile. Whether you're an overseas visitor or a domestic traveller, you'll be impressed with the sight of these large and imposing creatures.
The tour includes a cruise along the calm waters of the Proserpine River, spotting crocodiles and a wide range of other wildlife as well as an open-air wagon tour through the wetlands, and an Aussie barbeque lunch complete with bush-cooked damper and billy tea. To make the most out of this unique Whitsunday wildlife experience, the tour is limited to a maximum of 31 people and includes informative and interactive commentary by your experienced, personal guide.
