Paid a visit to the park in November so if you don’t like the heat maybe choose a different time of year. The croc feeding showed the power and speed of these huge crocs. The river cruise was excellent to see the crocs and how...More

Great to know you had such an enjoyable time - despite the November weather, which is a bit challenging. Start of the wet season! Thanks for letting us know.

So glad we took this tour! We boarded a bus from the hotel, quite a drive to the park---about 45 minutes. Restrooms were basic but usable. Boat trip was good, boats were small so you could really see the "jumping crocs" when they were teased...More

All sounds a bit contrived to me Andy. The RSPCA is always welcome. The lions are not in small cramped enclosures. They behave normally and roaring to each other, is perfectly natural and interesting to many people. The new lion exhibits are as good and...More

Thanks for the "heads-up". We actually have 2 x 12-seater shuttle buses, but with tourism in Darwin quite depressed, annually and at the present time seasonally, it is just not economical for us to operate a regular service. The thought is good and appreciated! THanks...More

Crocodylus Park is a worthwhile visit if you know what you're getting. As a long time resident of Far North Queensland, I had my fill of crocodile gimmicks and crocodiles in the wild in Cairns and Cape York, so I tended to ignore the Darwin...More

I'm going to be writing a reveiw. I sent an email also as I was totally gutted at the extreme small enclosures you have in place for all the animals. I see some of the managementa responses to others saying the same thing and you can never answer what's being said other then they r ok and getting close to nature has its challenges, the only challenge I sore was that they couldn't be any further away from nature and a lion sprays his sent to mark his territory not that he really has to worry about that . My apartment is bigger then there enclosure it was awfully sad to see and I can't believe the obvious many people that seem to enjoy there trio there. It's nothing more then a money making farm for what ever purposes you so choose, meat bags etc. How it's legal I don't know. Yes I agree when you say animals smell etc that's fine but really if you can hand on heart disagree that the crocs and lion enclosures r not to small then so be it, but even if you do support this I can almost garantee you can't think it is. I lasted as far as the Lions so 20 min into the zoo I had to leave. I didn't care for the over priced money you charge if it lines urs and who ever else's pockets then that's good for you. I love animals and would love to work with them and am studying animal phycology at uni, but never would I consider such a place. Hope you enjoyed your xmas with ur nice wages from a place that should be closed down. Those animals would be happier not existing.
