It is an awesome crocodile farm that is full of thrilling experiences and adventures with crocodiles, snakes and other lovely creatures. An amazing and incredible experience. The facility is very well-maintained and looked after. The guides are highly experienced and professional. It is a full day activity for the kids and family that provides lot of information about these lovely wild creatures. It is not that costly and is worth every penny spend. It is a must for the tourists to this region. The farm is very well connected by public transport from Cairns and easy to reach by car.
Clean and respectful. The staff love their jobs and the animals and are very knowledgeable. Ask them questions! I experienced interacting with animals that I never had before and at no point did it ever feel like they were unhappy. Excellent!
