We visited this place a few times whilst living in Darwin. We spent hours looking at the fantastic variety of animal life. I expecially loved the bird display. There's also a great Cyclone Tracy display with lot's of photos, information and displays. Definatly worthwhile visiting.

The large crocodile called sweetheart was impressive but his end of life was a shame. The photos and information on cyclone Tracy was very interesting too.
