Do this!!! Family and kids loved it. There is no shortage of crocs to see. The highlight was the lagoon boat ride and our passionate guide - a very Aussie character

Spectacular place to see crocs and lots of them. Make sure to see the shows - walking around the park yourself for the other attractions only takes a few hours
