Spotlight Evening Tour
Not available the last time we visited (took all our visitors there when we lived in Gladstone as it was only a 90 minute drive and made a great day trip as well as visiting with our homeschool group) are the new spotlight tours where you can let the team host your next work, Christmas or birthday party. Tours are 3 to 6 hours long, include a 3 to 5 course meal, fully guided farm ‘torchlight tour’ and hands on experience with a 1 to 3 year old crocodile all included. Minimum number required of 20 people per booking so get some friends or colleagues together and enjoy all that the Koorana Crocodile Farm experience has to offer.Samantha Sullivan
