My kids love visiting the crocodile farm. Knowledgeable guides. Restaurant facilities with great picnics (you can even hire rods and fish), two playgrounds and beautiful scenery. Worth a visit. Even had my sons birthday party here, great venue.

We really enjoyed getting to see so many crocodiles and learning loads about them. We were pleasantly surprised that we got to hold a baby croc as well! How exciting! Nice cafe and shop to browse in as well.
