Really just a croc farm with a few sleepy animals chucked in as filler. It takes like 20mins to do the whole park, they do tease (enrich) the crocs with a chicken leg every couple of hours. Seriously don’t waste your $40 an adult entry...More

Sorry the Park did not meet your expectations, but there are horses for courses - not sure what you were expecting. Most people spend hours in the Park, enjoy it immensely, and go back with insights into all aspects of crocodiles gleaned for 5 decades...More

Always nice when visitors let us know how much they appreciated the Park and staff. Everyone strives hard to make visits a "special occasion" and our tour guides, like Ian and Tate, are exceptional. THanks for letting us know.

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.
