Crocodylus Park is not short of a croc or two - there are close on a thousand specimens here, ranging from tiny little hatchlings to the kind of cruising monsters that appear in horror movies and nightmares. Many of these have been relocated from the wild. There are saltwater and freshwater crocodiles, and American alligators.
There's a slight whiff of the circus about Crocodylus Park. As well as the crocodiles, the park shows off a perplexing array of exotics including tigers, leopards and monkeys. There are also snakes, brolgas, wallabies, birds and turtles. Daily feeding sessions display the crocs' sensational biting power.
However, this park was begun by a crocodile biologist and there's an emphasis on conservation, research and education. You can visit the crocodile museum to find out more about the origin of the crocodile (for instance, did you know that there used to be terrestial crocs that could gallop freely over the earth?).
Crocodylus Park is about 15 minutes from Darwin city center. If you're not driving, you can catch bus 5 from the city center.
