Marineland Melanesia is really worth the visit, they have the most amazing Crocodiles and seeing them being fed was wonderful.

We loved our visit to Marineland Melanesia!! What a fantastic family business this is. The shows were personal fun and very informative. Amazing creatures! The feeding is sensational and terrifying at the same time! Our children loved it so much we went for every morning and afternoon show for five days! And I can honestly say I learnt something new...

This is a fantastic place to visit while in Cairns! Ever wanted to get up close and personal with a croc? First, go and meet Cassius [5.5 metres], Brutus [4.2 metres] and his girlfriend Babinda [3.5 metres]. Of course you'll need to go at feeding time, just to get a great view of Cassius and his appetite! You'll think twice... More

Worth a visit to see such big crocodiles and definitely worth going at feeding time. Our daughter loved the photo opportunity to hold a 4 year old croc called Cuddles!

We visited this attraction to see Cassius but were pleasantly surprised to find so many crocodiles and so many Melanesian tribal artifacts - this was a quite amazing collection. I spent a lot of time contemplating what kind of nightmares Melanesian people had to carve such things. Some of it was seriously creepy but fantastic stuff. The crocodiles were also... More

The entry fee is not worth it - they would do better to lower the price and increase the number of people entering. The crocodiles were interesting to see, but it really only takes 20mins to walk around and take a look. There are also 2 turtles in a tank, which was sad to see, although we were advised they...

On our last trip to Green Island we had the pleasure of visiting Marineland Melanesia. The place is amazing with lots to look at. It was great to get so close to the crocodiles while they were getting fed. Jemma was very informative and it was lovely to hear her tales of growing up on the island as the granddaughter... More

It seems really cheesy from the outside, but was well worth the price and time. In addition to the crocs, there is a museum-quality collection of South Pacific native art.
