We went during the week and were told our tickets were valid for the Sunday feeding and snake shows. They were very informative and we genuinely enjoyed them. The kids loved the fact that they were allowed a photo op with baby crocs after the shows. I would recommend it for a day out when the weather isn't great for... More

If you like Classical Music you must attend one of their Classical Music evenings held in the Conference Center where international quality performers play in an intimate setting of just about 100 audience. The Concerts are held about 4 times a year and details of dates are available from the Gift Shop at the Crocodile Farm. We have just moved... More

This is a good place for the young and older too to visit. I would check out the times when they feed the crocodiles and be there to witness them feeding its great to see. Also if you are not veggie you can order a dish of crocodile meat in the cafe there too

I little expensive, but the experience is still worth it. I found the audio visual show really cool. Ask what time the feeding is for a better value experience. Try the Crocodile burger in the local restaurant.

There is a wealth of info available on both the crocodiles as well as the snakes, especially if one attends and listens to the shows they have. We... More
