Found the visit to the Crocodile farm really great. Many crocs up close. Many other animals to see. They also sell Croc meat if you want to give it a taste.

A lot of crocodiles! from small to humongous. Recommended if you have the money to spare. Don't regret going just thought it was going to be better then average which it wasn't. Definetly a tourist trap.

First of all the video playing on screen welcomes you with a HUGE lie, saying the Australian Aboriginal has a unique 6th sense to sense if a crocodile is nearby. Really?? Well it can't be good since we keep reading about their kids being taken on a monthly basis from Northern rivers. The price to go in is RIDICULOUS! So... More

I was expecting a lot more for the $40 adult entry fee. Very hot day so maybe the crocs were lazy but not much to see. Small zoo with other animals but better to go to a lagoon in the wild I think.

This farm is extremely rundown. The crocs are kept in concrete enclosures. There should be a law against keeping these creatures in such an unnatural environment. A waste of money.

The Croc Farm as it is commonly called certainly is the right place to get up close and personal with the Top End's most infamous killer, the salt water crocodile. I have to be honest and say that I dont really want to get that close to them anywhere else but here as they are very, very frightening beasties. But... More

The Crocodile Farm some 40 kms from Darwin on the Stuart Highway has been closed now for a couple of years to the public. A couple of the larger crocs have been shifted to Crocosaurus Cove in the CBD which is a sister organisation . The farm still operates but it now only concentrates on the preparation of crocodile skins... More
