This place is out of Sydney but worth the trip if you want to see the croc show. It’s not a huge place so you don’t need to spend all day there but there is def enough to keep you occupied for the day.

Really enjoyed it. Informative interesting talks. Animal interaction and plenty to see. You can have your picture taken with a variety of animals, including koalas for a reasonable fee. Definitely worth a visit if passing
