The Darwin Crocodile farm is actually about 37km from Darwin, so don’t get confused by the name. Heading south towards Alice Springs, but only a few kilometres after the Humpty Doo/ Kakadu turn-off and is on the right hand side of the highway. It is well worth the visit here to see the thousands of crocs here. Some of them... More

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.
