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.

The crocodiles range in age and size from 30-centimetre (12-inch) hatchlings to adults measuring 4.8 metres (16 feet) and weighing half a ton.

Crocodylus Park crocodile research

Research and the study of crocodiles and reptiles are an ongoing specialisation at Crocodylus where founder Dr Grahame Webb and the staff of Wildlife Management International have spent the past 25 years researching crocodiles.

Other wildlife at Crocodylus Park include big cats, primates, birds and other reptiles including hawksbill turtles.

Take a tour through the wildlife park.
