The crocodile farm was 40KM from Darwin and was quite good, although if we had been there at 2pm that would have been better, as that is feeding time. There are 2 other crocodile places - Crocydylus Park and the Jumping Croc Cruise, but these are more expensive. Darwin Crocodile Farm costs $10. We saw many crocodiles and a couple of alligators as well. Also saw some juvenile crocs - they still looked scary though!
After the Croc farm, we headed to Litchfield NP
After a spot of lunch, we then headed to Wangi falls for another swim. Right by the waterfall there was a little (and I mean little) rock pool that we climbed up to and swam in. The rock pool is very deep so you have to be good at treading water, but is a nice little sun trap so well worth having a dip!
We headed back to Darwin after that, and had enough kilometres left over to drop Kyle and Lennae at the airport that evening. Car hire is 24hrs which is very handy.
It's a very cheap day trip to do, and one that doesn't need 4WD as roads are all tarmac. Only worth doing if more than one of you, otherwise you can book a tour for around the same price if you are a single traveller.
