Crocodile farm Feeding Time

 

The Darwin Crocodile Farm is located just 38 kilometres south of Darwin just past the Kakadu highway turn off and is home to some 36,000 crocodiles. The crocodiles range in size from hatchlings just a few centimetres long to large males over five metres in length.Most tourists choose to visit during the twice-daily feeding time when the large animals leave their water holes to be hand fed by the experienced handlers.

 

The Darwin Crocodile Farm also offers a unique opportunity to sample a range of crocodile meat products as well as crocodile skin souvenirs. The Darwin crocodile farm is open from 9am – 4pm and entry is $10 for adults and $6 for children. Feeding times are at 2pm daily.

 

Crocodylus Park, just five minutes from Darwin Airport and 15 minutes from Darwin city centre, is home to more than a thousand crocodiles and other wildlife. Other wildlife at Crocodylus Park include tigers, kangaroos, monkeys, birds and other reptiles including hawksbill turtles. Opening times are from 9am – 5pm with feeding tours at 10am, 12 and 2pm. If taking public transport, catch the No 5 bus from Darwin, the No 5 or 9 bus from Casuarina. The bus stop is about a five minutes' to the Crocodylus Park front entrance. Just inform the bus driver you wish to get off at Crocodylus Park.  Entry to Crocodylus Park costs $25 for adult and $12.50 for children.
