About this Darwin Tour
Welcome to the Outback's remake of Jurassic Park! Get ready for your close-up with the primordial cousins of the dinosaur at Crocodylus Park. While these bad boys managed to avoid extinction, their population was seriously depleted by the 1970s. Thanks to the conservation and research efforts of Professor Grahame Webb, you'll see over a thousand crocodiles ranging from 12-inch-long hatchings to adults measuring over 15 feet.
Start your visit with an eco cruise to view saltwater crocodiles (what Aussies call "salties") in their natural setting. These are the largest reptiles on earth, weighing up to 2,000 pounds. Now that's a lot of croc! Explore the park's unique crocodile museum, where there's no shortage of amazing crocodile facts. Or stop by one of four daily guided feeding times. Witness for yourself the croc's incredible power, speed, and stealth.
Don't miss the chance to touch a croc's skin (surprisingly soft!), and keep in mind that Crocodylus is more than crocodiles. Time your visit to join in one of the park's newest attractions: hand-feeding the meerkats. Maybe you'll even hear these gregarious creatures "purr." You'll also view big cats, primates, snakes, birds, and a host of quirky Aussie natives like the emu, dingo, and those three mates, the kangaroo, wallaby, and wallaroo. There really is no other museum like it. Ace!
Are those crocodile tears?
While we think of "crocodile tears" as being insincere, the expression originates from an ancient belief that crocodiles shed tears when they eat their prey. It's true that crocs have tear ducts, but they weep to lubricate dry eyes. If they were to cry, it's more likely to be tears of frustration over the continuing confusion between crocs and alligators. In the battle of croc vs. gator, the bigger, more aggressive crocodile will be the winner. Always.
Please make your own way to Crocodylus Park.
