About the Tour
A calm-water cruise, all year round, on the Proserpine River with crocodile watching. The Proserpine River is home to the highest density of saltwater (estuarine) crocodile per kilometre in Queensland, as well as many other residents of the mangrove habitat.
An open air, elevated wagon train tour through wetlands, natural waterholes, pastures and melaleuca forest which are home to a variety of birdlife, native mammals, and reptiles.The tour is established for over 14 years, we are a Green Travel Leader, holding advanced eco certification with Ecotourism Australia for over 10 years.
We operate on privately owned land, we are the only commercial tourism operator on the Proserpine River.
Crocodile sightings are not guaranteed because we operate in the crocodile's natural habitat, not in a fauna park or farm. But we offer the best chance of seeing crocodiles in the wild in Queensland, because we run our cruise at the lowest point of the tide each day, which provides the best opportunity to spot crocodiles as they bask on the exposed river bank
