This is a hidden gem on Green island. We went there expecting snorkelling and swimming and discovered this amazing little crocodile sanctuary. Brett was our guide and talked us through the basic croc facts. We watched him feed about five of the residents including Cassius who has been their since the 1970's. $19.00 entrance allows you as many visits as... More

A surprise, to have a crocodile park on a small coral island in the Great Barrier Reef system. Many large crocs (including one claimed to be the largest in captivity), along with aquariums. Perhaps most amazing is that the property is full of incredible South Seas art and artifacts, mostly sculptures. One of the largest, if not the largest, private... More

The show does not disappoint. If you want to see a bunch of enormous crocs being fed, this is what you get.

We weren't sure what to expect and it cost us $50 for our family (2 adults and 2 kids). We also paid an extra $20 to have photos with the baby crocodile 'Cuddles'. The kids had a work sheet where they had to find various items around the park which made it interesting for them. We were amazed at how... More

This is an awesome place for any crocodile lover, and I've never seen this many crocodiles in one place! Each exhibit has a sign outside displaying the animal's name and temperament, and there's even a pool where you can see a pair of Hawksbill Turtles. Although they don't seem to market it much, they offer a HUGE collection of native... More

This is a small crocodile park in Green Island. The only attractive is to see the demonstration and food feeding for crocodile.

Green Island is horrible. Over one thousand day visitors crowd onto this tiny island each morning. The few who actually stay at the resort on the island are forced to retreat to a tiny pool area. No peace. No quiet. The crocodile park is a 70's throw back. The guide explained it as a prison for bad crocs who like... More

This awesome family-owned crocodile park was a definite highlight of our trip! The crocs all have great enclosures where their naturally murky water is perfect for camouflage rather than crystal clear for humans to gawk through- the focus is obviously on their preferred living environment rather than what people may see as preferable. This is also great for giving you... More

Thanks to Bill for the very informative talk about the history of the park and information about crocodiles. Feeding show gets the kids very excited and there is a little croc " cuddle" at the end of the show so you can pet it or take a pic with it at extra cost. Very funny feeling to hold onto a... More
