Really fascinating visit. Initially we were taken on a cruise through their Croc infested wetland where it was explained how male & female crocs come about, their territory, feeding habits, physiology etc. Next was a guided tour of their mating pens [ I couldn't believe the size of some of the males] followed by the jumping crocs & viewing some...

Really good fun, Its about a half hour drive out of Darwin but well worth it. The guides were very informative, and feeding the crocs was a blast. We went in the afternoon a little cooler and wasn't to crowded.

This farm teaches a lot about Crocodiles and other animals. Feeding, holding crocs, croc handbags and belts available for sale. Graham Webb has spent years researching Crocodiles and has a great team working at the croc farm, including Tony Manolis. Go while it is cool, morning before 11 or after 3:00. Midday sun can be hot, so wear a hat.

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.
