We had such a great day here. Alex (if I remember the name correctly, with a beard!) Was really good telling us all about the different turtles, crocodiles snakes and everything else. the crocodile show itself was very very entertaining and extremely informative too. Feeding the turtles was also a great deal of fun and being able to enjoy the swimming pool with a cold beer in the middle of it was even better. Highly recommended and will be returning.
A great experience to pass the baton of nostalgia to my children. Park has changed since I was a kid, however I think it is for the better. Tidy facilities, happy animals, the only improvement would be more shows.
