See the animals still alive after 250 million years
Crocodiles are as old as dinosaurs, over 200 million years old

Crocodiles lived with the dinosaurs and have evolved for more than 200 million years. And both are considered reptiles with their scaly skin, big teeth and claws. So are crocodiles considered the last dinosaurs? Also, turtles have evolved from the Triassic period over 250 million years ago.

Crocodiles, like the French, love to eat frogs

Crocs love to eat frogs, fish, and any other small animals that they can catch. But be very careful, because they are deadly fast and they cannot differentiate between a finger in the water and a fish in the water. Its both looks yummy to them.

Well this is your chance to have a family fun FREE adventure at a new park and see crocodiles and learn their story on Sunday October 18, 2015 from 11am to 2pm at the corner of City Bay Road and Saltwater Promenade, Point Cook, Victoria.

The new Saltwater Coast Point Cook Crocodile Park is having their Grand Opening. So load the car up with friends and family and take a wonderful drive to Point Cook and see the sights of the city as you travel over the Westgate Bridge.

Plus you get to enjoy the scenic views back to the cityscape as you enjoy learning about these ancient creatures.

As well, the Nickelodeon's Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles will be showing off their martial art moves as they meet and greet you. So this is your chance to see them live in action, versus just on the little television screen. How rare is that?

And that is just the just the start, as a live band will keep you entertained while you eat the yummy food on offer. There will be a Kids Train for rides for those budding train conductors.

Then, "Come aboard matey" as there will be an inflatable pirate ship for the aspiring pirates in the family. And what might disappear during the Magic Show?. There is more, but that is for you to find out as you explore this latest adventure park.

So get your comfy shoes on and make it a lovely fun Sunday, out in the fresh sea air, with friends and family. And it is less than one hour from the Melbourne CBD, so less time for the kids to argue in the car.
