What a fascinating place this is, full of bizarre and interesting bits, pieces and art and personal memorabilia of Harry, the original crocodile hunter before Dundee and the many people who must have been there for the party that went on for 20 years, I recognized the parts that were used in the Mad Max movies, and what a ladies...

I took photos outside of the statues, garden etc. It was fascinating to see the granite carved statues, all the different furniture, old vehicles, and other collections

Very eccrentric person who lived his life. Mined the fields and created a dug out. Now passed on yet reprutation proceeds him as a ladies man and a heavy drinker. Unique yes a visit well worth spending the time. He was one of the characters of the area.

This is really interesting. The place has been cleaned up so that it is suitable for families. The orginal decore included bras and undies hanging from the ceiling. This was the payment if you went to the party that lasted years (apparently until Harry died).

Absolutely amazing place. Planned to see for a long time as he was Latvian. Was hard to find at first as nowhere can found a map. Had to ask some old lady on the street and she showed directions and remembered beloved Harry! Place was stunning and very well looked after. We even had time to play with both doggies:)

His dugout home is a real piece of art (or rather: many pieces of art). He as well as his many guests left lots of drawings and bits of poetry.

We visited this as part of an afternoon trip. This is really a tacky, unnecessary tourist dive. Our guide was great and explained in advance that this would not be to everyone's taste due to the nature of Crocodile Harry's life style so at least we were prepared. The caretaker's dogs were loose around the site and followed the group... More

The story of Crocodile Harry was fascinating; interesting to see the little bats in the mine. I also enjoyed the statues he created out of his left over junk!

Crocodile Harry passed away some years ago, I revisted there recently - the dugout is well kept with all the old iconic photos of Harry and his visitors - out on the road to the Golf Course - well worth a look.
