Whitsunday Crocodile Safari


See Estuarine Crocodiles In the Wild in the Whitsundays!


Whitsunday Crocodile Safari is a safe, all-weather nature excursion which takes guests to see crocodiles in the wild in the Whitsundays.

This is a nature based tour which enables guests to explore the estuaries and wetlands of the Whitsundays and to discover the vegetation and wildlife in these unique habitats.

The safari is set to the background sounds of nature and gives the impression you are miles from civilisation, deep in the Australian bush, even though you are only 5 minutes from Proserpine and 30 minutes from Airlie Beach.

Experiences on the tour include cruising the calm waters of Proserpine River, exploring Goorganga Plains on a tractor-drawn wagon train, enjoying a huge barbecue lunch and traditional billy tea and damper, which is all prepared onsite. Your tour also includes courtesy transfers from most accommodation houses and bus stops throughout Airlie Beach, Cannonvale and Proserpine.

Whitsunday Crocodile Safari has been operating for 17 years and is a family owned, professionally operated tour, guaranteeing excellent customer service and a memorable nature experience for guests.

Whitsunday Crocodile Safari is Advanced Ecotourism ECO IV certified and has Green Travel Leader status, having been a member of Ecotourism Australia since 2002.
