This little place was amazing if you are into ancient artefacts, you can't find better in a museum and the croc feeding was so close that you could nearly touch them.

This family run attraction is a great extra activity to do on Green Island. It is reasonably priced and the crocodile feeding is very informative, interactive and lots of fun. The croc handler really made the show and got the audience involved. Our 3 year old grandson loved it and joined in the conversation. Definitely worth a visit.

The collection of melanesian art is nice but it looks like a storage, I guess there is a few nice piece. The crocodile part is better organize. It's kind of weird to have this place in Green Island, I don't know how to explain that feeling but I have the feeling to be somewhere else.

A great way to spend some time on Green Island. The crocs were amazing, and our daughter loved the turtles. The melanesia collection was incredible .

We visited Mainland Melanesia twice during our stay on Green Island. The first time we went for feeding and thoroughly enjoyed our tour with a guide who was informative and interesting without having to play the 'hilarious joke-a-minute' guide you so often get. We came back again on the second day to keep looking at the absolutely amazing artefact collection... More

This company is great. We purposely went during feeding time and loved it. A small family owned business, they offer a beautiful surrounding and very informative presentation. Definitely worth the visit! I expected to see probably about 3 crocs but was blown away by all the different mating pairs and info and carvings about the place. Cuddles the croc was... More

Visited here on a recent trip to Green Island. Really good place to see huge crocs up close. Also lots of artefacts. Great to be able to support a family run business.

Marineland was one of the best things for both adult and the kids. While there is a lot of old artefacts to look at at by far the best thing to do is to see the croc feeding. To be less than two metres from massive crocs jumping up for a feed was quite amazing. The family owners where great... More
