Steve, Sally, Darlene and all the others working at Crocodylus were amazing hosts. From the moment we got there until the moment we left, our stay in the Crocodylus Village was an exciting and unique adventure. We highly recommend the night tour with Steve and would definitely suggest booking in advance to avoid missing out!!! We were pleasantly surprised to...

I stayed here in the 90s and in 2001 when I lived in Australia. I just went back in December, and it was as lovely as I remembered it though it is now under new management--who are doing a great job. This is for the serious eco-tourists, or for anyone who wants to REALLY experience the Queensland rainforest outside the...

We stayed here just before Xmas for 2 nights - family of 4 (2 kids who are 14 & 11). Couldn't recommend it enough! We did the evening walk and it was fab - learnt so much and even captured quite a bit on video (paradise kingfisher escaping from a snake!). The safari hut was comfortable. Bargain of a price....

Fall asleep and wake up to the sounds of the rain hitting the roof and animals making their noises. No wifi, no phone service, just other guests, and the wonderful staff. The staff was friendly and helpful, plus the food was surprisingly good (and plentiful!) I would definitely stay here again and recommend everyone does.

We loved our stay here in the jungle and wished we could have stayed longer. This place is super affordable and if you don't mind communal bathrooms/kitchen I would highly recommend it. It's family friendly too and not really a party vibe which was perfect for what we were after. All the staff were super friendly and helpful and are...
