    Amazing Experience
    Me and my dad went to Crocodylus park looking forward to see some dangerous reptiles. We took the river cruise and encountered several crocodiles. I even got to hold a crocodile egg. On the boat, The guide would tie a piece of chicken neck to a piece string. He would stick to string out of the boat when he saw a crocodile around. The crocodile would then leap out of the water and grab the meat. It is really exciting to see.
    So glad you enjoyed your visit, and thanks for letting us know. Crocodiles are an exciting animal, I think because people have been dealing with them throughout their evolution (crocodiles preying on people, and people preying on crocodiles), so I think our reaction to them is "hard-wired" within us, and is not really manufactured by TV. Regardless, it is clearly an experience you will remember and thanks to "Dad" for taking you, and to you for letting us know. We appreciate it.

    One not to be missed.
    On a hot and muggy afternoon we lobbed up at Crocodylus Park looking forward to seeing some crocs and learn more about them. We started with a cruise through the lagoon and was guided by John who admitted it was his fourth or fifth tour of the day but that didn’t dampen his enthusiasm. He made sure we spent enough time on the boat to see a number of crocs jump out of the water from many different vantage points so everyone got a good view. He was informative, friendly and knowledgeable. We then got off the boat and was going for a wander through the rest of the park when John asked if WE wanted to feed some crocs. Hell Yeah! We got to feed a couple of crocs and the John went and grabbed a small croc for us to hold. Awesome! What a thrill. The park was clean and it was obvious that the animals were well cared for. We learnt a lot. Thanks to John for going above and beyond.
    Thanks so much for the "heads up" and glad you enjoyed it. Also clearly a great heads up for John!

    Great place to visit
    We visited here in 2 family groups and it was well worth it. The kids had a great time, with the feeding of the crocs, then the boat cruise which im sure never fails to impress, the guide on the cruise was extremely passionate about his job and it showed which made the cruise even better. The kids got to hold a baby croc and a snake. A great day had by all. Definitely a must do in Darwin
    Thanks for your feedback. Sounds like you had a great visit!

This was built in 1994 and is the largest crocodile and wildlife attraction in the Northern Territory. It has hundreds of crocodiles, a museum and a jumping croc cruise. It costs $44 for an adult and cheaper for concessions.

As big animal fans we dithered about visiting after reading some of the previous reviews, but thankfully we were pleasantly surprised by most of the park, aside from one poor bird in a very small cage at the entrance- if the poor thing is cooped up for a reason, they should add a sign. Lots of active crocs swimming, as well as meerkats, lions and many other animals. We didnt particularly like the breeding pens, but we did the jumping croc cruise, which was a fantastic add on, and our guide was incredibly knowledgeable- she absolutely made the experience, and her stories allowed us to appreciate the park rescuing the crocs from causing havoc on cattle farms and the likes. We thought we'd maybe be there 2h but managed to pass 3h30, so allow plenty of time!

Me and my husband absolutely LOVED crocodylus. The river cruise was an amazing experience where we got to get up close to the crocs in the river on site. The staff were all so knowledgeable and it was amazing to learn so much about these creatures. 10/10 will definitely recommend!

We learnt so much from the guides. Even got to feed a big croc and to hold a year old croc too.
Went on a boat cruise within the complex to watch the crocs jumping.
Brilliant experience all in the one place. Fully recommend this place

This croc park was such a pleasant surprise. We didn’t expect to have so much to see and do. Its not just crocs, there are so many more animals and reptiles to look at, including monkeys, meerkats and beautiful white lions. Definitely worth a visit

Couldn't believe how this place has changed, it's now a zoo as well. Exhibits are currently being added and some of the crocs are huge

A small park but a definite must do with the family. We have been to a lot of animal parks, but this one by far has been the best. We did an animal encounter and thoroughly enjoyed it. Staff were friendly, park was clean, great cafe and easy parking.

I visited Crocodylus Park with my Dad and left very impressed.

The first thing we did was the crocodile feeding tour with Katie, who did an excellent job at answering everyone's questions and getting people involved. We were able to feed the crocodiles ourselves, which was a lot of fun. At the end of the tour we got to hold a baby crocodile, which was a great experience, especially for kids. There is also a jumping crocodile river cruise for a small additional fee.

After the tour, we had lunch. Me and my dad both had the crocodile burger, which tasted awesome, and was very reasonably priced.

After lunch, we explored the rest of the park. In addition to saltwater crocodiles, the park has lots of other reptiles including freshwater crocodiles, American alligators, pythons and iguanas. The park is also home to several monkey species, ostriches, emus, cassowaries, dingos, meerkats and much more. The park also runs important breeding programs for endangered species, which is great to see.

Each animal has a very informative display that gives you information on everything from their distribution to their diet.

The park also has two adult male lions. If you are lucky, you will hear them roar, which is quite impressive in person.

The park has a highly informative museum on crocodiles and other reptiles that is worth seeing. Prof. Graham Webb, the founder of the park, is a passionate and brilliant conservationist and this can clearly be seen through his park and the work that goes on there.

You are also able to buy crocodile meat at the park, which tastes great. It comes frozen, which is very convenient if you are flying interstate to get back home like me.

Overall, definitely a place you should visit if you are ever in Darwin.

Great place to visit. Lots of different animals to see not just crocodiles. Well worth the entry fee. We also did the jumping croc tour and although the cross weren't very active it was well explained how the cross behaviour changes in the dry season. Tyson was a great tour guide!
