Koorana Crocodile Farm
Koorana Crocodile Farm is a commercially operated crocodile farm and restaurant located half an hour drive from Rockhampton or Yeppoon. This 3-generation family-run farm is Queensland’s first privately owned saltwater crocodile farm, home to 3,000 crocodiles with an onsite processing facility. Gates open at 10 am and fully guided tours are conducted daily at 10.30 am and 1 pm except for Christmas day.
Have lunch amongst the crocs with their restaurant open in between tours from 12 pm- 1 pm for ticket holders only. Their onsite processing ensures the croc meat is as fresh as possible and in combination with recipes handed down through the generations, you are guaranteed a unique paddock to plate experience like no other. Expand your palate and try a tasting platter with a selection of croc pie, Asian style croc patties, croc ribs marinated in honey and soy, croc kebabs and a croc steak. You won’t know where to start!
Crocodile hatchings can be seen from March to May with visitors given the opportunity to touch and hold a specially trained crocodile at no charge as part of their entrance price. Crocodile skin and crocodile leather products are available including wallets, belts, and clothing. Most crocodile leather accessories are Australian made and are sold at farm gate prices.
Last entry to farm is 2pm and gates close at 3pm.
