A Queensland wildlife park owner attacked by a crocodile is out of intensive care and in good spirits, his family says.

Rob Bredl, 66, remains in the Royal Brisbane and Women's Hospital after suffering serious injuries in the attack on Bredl's Wild Farm at Bloomsbury, north of Mackay, on Thursday.

He was moved out of intensive care on Saturday and is recovering well.

"So far surgeries have gone well and things are looking good," a family spokesman said.

"He remains in good spirits."

Known as the "Barefoot Bushman", Mr Bredl was in the middle of a feeding demonstration when the 4.5-metre male reptile turned on him.

He managed to break free from its jaws but suffered serious injuries to his left forearm and right leg.

His family have thanked the public for their well wishes but have asked for their privacy to be respected.
