  • Awesome well worth the entry price. Take a packed lunch if you don't want fried food or packaged sandwiches. Photo guy takes photos with your phone or camera and their professional imaging as well. Great service. Warm days, so dress light and bring a hat.
  • Spend half of the day there .. lovely small farm but just perfect for a day out with family or friends .. and lucky the weather was forecast as we were able to enjoy walking around the farm and check out all the animals there..we also went on the tour boat.. it was very exciting to see the crocodile in actions as they were getting fed.. just awesome .. it was also very educational .. gotta check it out if you're in Cairns !! Don't miss out the shows and tour boat ..
