Nice day out and amazing staff! Getting there is a bit hard.

An amazing day out with or without kids. Saw a lot of crocs and the show was amazing! The crocs are in a natural habitat, so that is nice to see. The workers were so funny and good at what they do! Getting there and getting back without your own transportation is a bit hard. Especially cause there is no internet. But they called an Uber for me!

Great place to learn about crocodile farming. 40 mins from Cairns city centre.

Value for money. We saw live feeding and also had boat tours, lots of shows like, snake show crocodile show etc. They will give you all the information about that animal with a live demonstration. Also, there is a cafe alongside the Crocodile River. Great place to visit I will definitely go back.
