About Crocodylus Village

Abundant wildlife including monitor lizards, bandicoots, cassowaries, boyds dragons, orange footed scrub fowls and a myriad of other tropical birds, mammals, and insects call this resort home making Crocodylus a must for all nature lovers and a great place to experience the real Daintree.

Spend your days exploring the Daintree and Cape Tribulation areas by foot, bicylce, or car. There is a myriad of tours and activities to choose from and our friendly staff have plenty of local knowledge and will help you sort out an itinerary to make the most of your time in this very special place no matter what you budget is.

After your days exploration wind down the evening sharing your day’s activities with our friendly staff and other guests, slip into the pool, surf the net, learn about the Daintree from our rainforest facts, or just relax. For those who still have energy to burn take our terrific jungle night walk, or join the kids in some board games or snooker.

We’ll keep you well fed and watered at Crocodylus Village too! Check out our famous Kingfisher Café, open 7:30am-11am & 6:30pm-7:30pm everyday with loads of budget minded, fresh and tasty tropical fare or prepare your own in our fully equipped self catering kitchen. Thirsty, then quench your thirst at our fully licensed Gecko bar, try a tropical cocktail with a twist or mix it up with one of our local brews.

Renown for our friendly, casual atmosphere (check us out on Trip Advisor ) we love nature and strive to ensure our guests get the best out of their Daintree stay. While you are with us make sure to ask us everything about the rainforest and its inhabitants. Steve and Jack are specialists at opening coconuts too!!
