Whilst open it was a great park with lots of aussie animals. Shame it closed. Now just breeding skins for the fashion industry.

Didn't like the fact that they breed crocodiles to skin them for useless things such as novelty gifts and handbags! Enclosures too small also, quite cruel really considering they have quite a bit of land.

this attraction is no longer open to the public. it is now a crocodile hatchery where the skins are made into handbags. Come and visit Coconuts anyway, and Flying fish point café. An idyllic place where you can really relax and fish with Ella Bay...More

This was one of the greatest experiences we had in Australia. We liked it because it wasn't so crowded and had very intimate experiences with the animals. That's probably why it closed down

We tried to visit on April 24th 2012 but found the business has closed down about 2 weeks previously according to locals, despite road signs and billboard advertising still on highway. A long drive to nowhere

We drove all the way back just to visit the farm - was just as good second time - Unmissable, friendly and knowledgeable... The staff give a personal touch instead of the mass tourist crap you get elsewhere... Perfect

We visited here almost by accident when we came across the sign whilst touring the Art Deco town of Innisfail. This is a small animal park with lots of crocs, kangaroos, etc. The thing that we loved about this place is that it was really...More
