About Proserpine's Crocodiles
This particular stretch of river has the highest concentration of saltwater crocodiles on the east coast of Australia so you're almost guaranteed to see them! 'Salties' are rated as the most dangerous crocodiles in the world and about 150 of them live in this river and its environs.
Meet Doreen & Dorothy
You'll enjoy a scenic cruise to the mainland where your coach will await you for the 40 minute drive through cane and bush lands. On arrival at the campsite beside the river you will be greeted by your friendly ranger guide. The timing of the cruise on the river varies, operating at low tide so you can be sure to see the crocs on the mud banks. The cruise is in a large flat bottom vessel offering plenty of security and great viewing of the awesome crocs. You will get up close so don't forget the camera!
On the opposite half of the tour you will enjoy a trip on an open air tractor train through the spectacular Goorganga Wetlands. Your guide is an expert on the local flora and fauna - wetland birds, wallabies and maybe even a snake or two!
A delicious barbecue lunch is included and at afternoon tea time you will sample some traditional tucker - billy tea and damper. The Whitsunday Crocodile Safari operates every day and is an ALL weather operation. There is a maximum of 31 passengers per trip so your comfort and individual attention on the tour is assured.
This is a unique wildlife experience that means so much more because everything you see is in the wild and it's right here in the Whitsundays!
