There are definitely crocodiles in Australia, they are a prominent wild animal in the region.

"Australia hosts two different species of crocodiles, both of which are native to Tropical Queensland. The freshwater crocodile (also called Johnstone’s Crocodile) is found in inland freshwater areas of the Australian tropics and occasionally in the tidal portions of rivers."

"The saltwater, or estuarine crocodile is found in estuaries, rivers, lagoons and swamps of the Australian tropics, from along the east coast south of Mackay all the up the coast to Cape York, and across the coastline of the northern half of Australia. Saltwater crocs are also found off beaches, and even a considerable distance up rivers and creeks in this region. "
