Very informative tour of the place - more than crocs, there are snakes and other reptiles. Knowledgeable farmer Kelly gives a great tour. Waffles and food in the restaurant were very good. Not only that, there is a wine cellar and art gallery too.

A lovely afternoon out for the kids. They got to hold new born crocodiles, which definitely made their 2016! Very insightful presentation on hatch-lings, even the 4 year sat still.
