Agatha Crocodile Ranch is a very clean and well run crocodile farm which offers tours to visitors local and abroad. Their guide is very knowledgeable and the tour well worth while. There is also a curio shop where gifts can be purchased

Waited 20 minutes for guide to arrive.Holding a baby crocodile is part of the tour as well as the feeding of the adult crocodiles.Glad there wasn't a stench ,water was clean and ranch looked well maintained.

The pre-tour session was informative but the guided tour through the facility wasn't great and the cover charge is a bit much for what you get.
