  • We visited this park because we were keen to see Crocodiles in a safe and controlled environment - and learn a bit out them. Our entry included a short boat trip which meant our entry was $110 for two...  more »
  • We enjoyed Crocodylus with our GrandDaughter that is 2yrs old, handling small crocs, enjoying all the birds and animals, especially the tiger "Quintus", the Mascot for 5RAR. A great Day.  more »

  • If you want to learn about Crocodiles before you explore the NT, I would advise everyone to go to this park. Very interesting, informative helpful advice. The old saying never smile at a crocodile, keep your distance keep away. Great place.
  • It's a crocodile farm masquerading as a zoo. And as a farm it's hardly free range for many of the animals. Your chickens probably have more room to move. The crocks in the river are fine but the large ones on display are in murky water concrete boxes that no reputable zoo would put an animal in. Not to mention the poor Lions and Tigers. You pay quite a bit for admission and the boat ride to see the big crocks feed is $15 extra. You'll have a much better time and see a much more impressive display at Jumping Crocodile Cruises near Humpty Do which we did last time we were in Darwin.
  • A perfect place to meet crocodiles and some others wildlife species. You can even have a chance to feed crocodiles or hold some croco babies in your hand. Be sure to ride on the boat tour to take a few shots of the jumping action of crocodiles. There is also a nice crocodile museum inside the park. Great for a one day or few hours tour.
  • The crocodiles were fed while we were there amid lots of jostling for position by tourists keen on getting that shot! That was quite good, especially for the kids present who were in awe of the size of some of the crocs. The zoo was also quite good and we enjoyed wandering the maze of paths taking us around to the king of the jungle enclosure which was spectacular.
  • It's a great place to take the family and for the tourists, can feel a little overpriced,( there's a crocodile place in the city that also has a locals pass and a great show.) You can catch the local bus here where kids ride free. The zoo section feels a little old, zoos have more space for animals these days usually. You can buy croc meat and things at the gift shop.
