Day 4

Koorana Crocodile Farm – Emu Park
Today you will be visiting a very different ‘farm’. The Koorana Crocodile Farm was the first commercial crocodile farm in Queensland, opened in 1981 with crocodiles captured from the wild that were proving to be a danger to people. After lunch, travel back via Emu Park to see the famous Singing Ship memorial to Captain James Cook. The "singing" occurs when the wind vibrates a series of cables with attached pipes of varying diameter – a sound that will be long remembered.
