The city of Cairns is home to Australia`s largest commercial Crocodile farm where for over 20 years traders have been producing Saltwater Crocodile leather products. A second farm has now been added in the northern territory and the Crocodile Farm is now the world`s largest producer of first grade Saltwater Crocodile skins and meats.
Sustainable commercial farming of these animals further protects the ones in the wild from poaching and of course potential extinction. Tours of these farms are easily arranged on which you will see these magnificent creatures up close and witness the violent feeding displays as big saltwater crocs fight for a position to snatch the food on offer.
There is also an excellent educational experience to be found here where you will learn about the benefits of sustainable farming and the complex history of these adaptable and ancient reptiles.
