A central Queensland crocodile farm has welcomed its first hatchlings for the year, with more than a thousand baby crocs expected over the next few months.

Many of the commercial crocodile farms in Queensland and Northern Territory that produce meat and skins, also have special tourist facilities where you can seen penned crocodiles in farms .

State party leader Steve Dickson said the reptiles were no longer endangered and it was time to turn them into a commercial business to curb growing numbers.

"In north Queensland, every time the flooding rains come half of the crocodile eggs are drowned and they just go to waste," he said at a policy announcement on the Sunshine Coast on Friday.

"We want to work hand-in-glove with indigenous communities to be able to collect those eggs and start crocodile farms throughout Queensland for commercial purposes so they can have their own businesses."

Mr Dickson said the party would enforce the humane euthanasia or relocation of problem crocodiles to commercial farms if they were "harassing" local communities.

"We will always put people's lives and the tourism industry before crocodiles," he said.

"We've got tourism areas where tourists are being forced out ... by these dangerous crocodiles."

Mr Dickson also accused Katter's Australian Party of taking One Nation's crocodile policy.

KAP have threatened to block the state budget unless the government supports its proposal to introduce a crocodile cull, safaris and egg collection.

One Nation's crocodile management plan was one of several policies announced by Mr Dickson on Friday in the lead-up to the next state election.

Mr Dickson said the party also opposed asset sales and would rename the Queensland Police Service the Queensland Police Force.
