Sounds like "information overload" on crocs made for a great day! The scientists involved with Crocodylus Park have been writing papers and books on crocodiles for over 40 years and so there's a lot to get over .... but we're still stunned by how much more there is to learn. Thanks for letting us know. More

Keep your hands by your sides and be vigilant. This is a truly once in a lifetime experience to get so close to the animals however be vigilant as this is their territory. There is an opportunity to feed the crocs and go for a boat ride in croc infested waters. The staff are all well trained and well informed... More

Great to know you enjoyed the visit and yes ... there is a real danger in trying to "sugarcoat" crocodiles. They are fascinating animals, and their biology interests just about everyone, but in the wild they are a serious predator and must be treated with respect. Thanks for commenting. More

Even if you don't 'like' crocodiles this place is interesting. The experienced staff know so much about these reptiles and they tell you so much about the fauna and flora around that I found it very interesting. Although dangerous these creatures are very interesting! Well worth a visit just to discover nature in the Top End! They also have a... More

Lived in Darwin for many years, but have only just visited Crocodylus Park as a tourist. The crocodile part of the attraction is fabulous with knowledgeable keepers & feeders. Learned heaps about crocs in general, but the rest of the zoo exhibits look a little forlorn in cages & areas that seem a little small for the type of animals... More

Glad to know you appreciated the crocodile experience - in many ways it is our special area of expertise. We're continually trying to build and upgrade facilities for all the animals, but it just takes time and resources. But we cannot really build an open range zoo, which takes much more land. Always a compromise I'm afraid. THans for letteing... More

We enjoyed seeing Crocodiles of all ages, including feeding time and the opportunity to hold a baby crocodile. The park also was home to many other animals including other native wildlife - kangaroos,dingos and emus, and some primates where we followed feeding time and were able to speak to the keeper.

Small zoo but great up and close access to the animals. They get so close you need to step away! Kids got to hold a baby croc and feed the larger crocs. The only boring part was the eco cruise. Wish they would make the crocs interact with us! Overall a great zoo!

Glad to know you enjoyed your visit and the ability to get "up close and personal" with various animals. At this time of year (our winter) the crocs are mostly basking and inactive, so they can be "seen" in their glory, but are rather "inactive". Thanks More

The tours are short and interesting and I love being able to explore the animals at our pace. The new Lion enclosures going in are looking good. The Meercats and other animals seem weel cared for and its great to see these animals in Darwin as we do not have a typical zoo.

Glad to know you enjoyed your visit. Not that long ago kids in Darwin could not see any exotic animals "up close and personal", and in this way Crocodylus Park has bridged an important gap. Thanks. More

Great range of animals to see. The ecco cruise was worth the extra money. We got to hold a baby crocodile & feed a very large crocodile which was included in the admission price. A very enjoyable day.

Me and the squad went to the park a day ago. There was a great selection of animals on show however the one on one personal animal experience was an added cost on top of the admission fee.

Great to know you enjoyed your visit. Just for clarity ... the croc meat for sale is a separate issue than the milkshakes! In the peak of the tourist season the croc meat can sell quickly and can only be stocked up during weekdays. Sorry. THanks for letting us know. More

This is a wonderful park with a diverse range of wild life. The feeding time for the crocs is awesome and really gives you an up close look at these incredible creatures. Allow yourself plenty of time to wander around the park. The rangers are informative and happy to take pictures for you. Families will really enjoy this place
