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

Kids loved it adults learned a little and it's a decent honest family run business. What's not to like.

We went to Green Island to see the Great Barrier Reef, which we did, but it rained a lot and we needed something else to do with the kids, so we followed the signs to the crocodile habitat at Mainland Melanesia. The crocodile feeding was fantastic, and all of the staff were knowledgeable and taught us a lot about crocodiles.... More

Worth visiting as they will educate you on crocodiles, catch the crocodile feeding show whilst you are there - you must not miss it!

Crocodile attractions are pretty common in QLD so I was a bit wary about this one - no need. The crocodile show was great, informative and interesting but for me the artworks on display around the park was a real highlight. The setting is perfect and the collection is extensive - it really is worth a visit for that alone... More

Great attraction and well worth seeing while on Green Island. It's a shame there wasn't more publicity about this because more would make the effort to see it. Great souvenir shop, much better than Green Island shop!!

Beautifully clean, animals look healthy, informative presentations. Dislikes - nothing. Home of the Guinness World record largest croc in captivity, Cassius, who is impressive! Learn about crocodile habits and environment, watch their awesome power as they feed. There are also hundreds of examples of primitive art collected from the original owner.
