Wide variety of crocodiles and alligators in natural surroundings. Quaint curio shop with wide variety to choose from.

We visited during the week so no feeding of the crocs which would have been interesting. We observed the crocs. of varying sizes but there was little information about the differences. There is a cafe but no-one serving which I suppose is not surprising as there were only 6 people, including us 2, while we were there

Brilliant day out. We visited at feeding time (3pm on Saturday and Sunday). Informative talk by staff feeding the crocs and the opportunity to hold one of the baby crocs.

First of all the personnel is extremely friendly and helpful, especially the good old man at the reception/curio shop. There are plenty of ponds with all sizes and shapes and variaties of crocodiles and alligators. Even tortoises, terrapins and snakes. Once a saw a red duiker. I made my best ever taken pictures of weaver birds there. The centre is... More

Make sure you visit at the weekends during feeding times - Saturday at 15:00, and Sunday at 11:30. Watching the feeding and getting a talk from the ranger with lots of interesting facts makes the 75R entrance really good value. I think visiting without the feeding and the talk may be a bit boring as the crocs don't do much... More

Informative and well laid out, expect to get up close with the scaley ones. If you visit at specific times and days you'll see the crocs being fed, which will increase your caution levels in the surrounding areas. Do yourself a favour and go for a walk from the car park into the surrounding bush, but take heed of the... More

Before I visited I wasn't the biggest fan of crocs but afterwards I came out absolutely loving the creatures! Hearing their background stories of how they ended up at the centre and seeing them all so close is an amazing experience! Also got to hold a baby croc which was amazing!

Up close to big crocodiles, alig atoms and wildlife. Spent around hour and a half wandering around the site looking at the many crocodiles and had great refreshments in the cafe. Great place to visit.

I felt it was a little pricey for what you get, we went through during the week so there were no shows or anything, just a walk about that takes about 40min. There was a coffee shop but I didn't see anyone there. Very interesting to see and the crocs are easy to see. Place is clean and well kept
