When you arrive, enjoy several hours of free time to explore the park’s five different ecological zones at your leisure. Take a narrated boat tour through wetlands, where you might spot some of the 19 resident saltwater crocodiles lounging in the sun. Stroll along the Cassowary Walk to observe these fascinating flightless birds, and admire an array of other native species like koalas, turtles, snakes, and lizards from a series of elevated boardwalks.

Live shows and feedings throughout the day offer a chance to learn more about Australia’s amazing wildlife. Don’t miss the Crocodile Attack Show, featuring massive crocs snapping food from a pole and showing off their infamous ‘head shake’ and ‘death roll.’ Tour the crocodile farm to learn how these prehistoric creatures are sustainably raised for their meat and skins.

Exciting, awesome and entertaining
Jo_T, Sept 2023
As close as we hope to ever get to real reptiles! The croc feedimg show is amazing and the kids were entertained throughout the entire demonstration.
Response from Host, Sept 2023
Thank you for the review, we are so pleased to hear everyone in the family enjoyed their day.
Steve_M, Aug 2023
The best part was watching the crocs jump out of the water to grab the dangling food, and the croc attack show, where a trainer spent 30 minutes teasing a croc and putting himself up as bait.
Amazing crocs
Nicole_G, Aug 2023
Our favourite part of the day was definitely the 3pm croc attack show. The keeper was very informative (and brave!) she did a great job. So many crocs to look at, just amazing creatures
Response from Host, Aug 2023
Hi Nicole, thank you for the review. Glad to hear you enjoyed your crocodile experience
Not great
Stephanie_F, July 2023
Not that much to do, missed out on some activities such as the feeding show since the tour only arrives around 1pm. For the same price would rather do an island day trip.

Eliot_F, Mar 2023
Want to see saltwater crocodiles and not be eaten by one? This is the place. Yes, the crocs are enticed to the surface by feeding, but it is quite an experience to see them.
Response from Host, Mar 2023
It is an amazing venue for showcasing crocs, snakes and other wildlife, isn't it. Thank you for our 5 star review. We are thrilled that you had a wonderful day and have many fond memories to take home with you.

Half day is too long for this. We end up with sitting there doing nothing waiting for pick up for an hour and half.
Response from Host, Mar 2023
Thank you for your review, we are sorry that you didn't find the Wildlife Park captivating. There is a full afternoon program, highlighting the Aussie wildlife: Crocodile Attach Show, Snake Show, Wetlands Cruise, Wallaby, Cassowary, Koala and Quoll Feeding, as well as a lovely nature walk through the park, I'm sorry you didn't enjoy your afternoon there.
