Make sure you don't go out to 12 mile too early as the Malcolm Douglas Crocodile and Wildlife Park doesn't open until 2 pm. We enjoyed a delicious wood fired pizza at the nearby Mango Farm before the show started at 3 pm. The enthusiastic presenter of the show was very informative about all the crocodiles, alligators as well as... More

Great to see crocodiles in such a beautiful shady environment. The park has been set up well and the crocs look well cared for in their billabongs. Other croc parks have them in concrete ponds so it was good to see them in an environment similar to the wild. The feeding time tour and chance to hold a baby croc... More

We're glad you enjoyed your visit to the park. The vast majority of our skins are purchased by the fashion houses in Italy and France who manufacture high end products such as bags and shoes. Being a small family owned business it is not financially viable to be able to produce these items in Australia or rebuy them back from... More

Great tour, well paced, just over an hour long. The animals seem well cared for. Felt a bit sorry for the big red kangaroo as he was all alone in his yard and scrambling for human attention, but apart from that, was pleased to see how well all the animals were housed and obviously well cared for.

Thank you for your feedback. The big red is called Paws and was hand raised in the park and just loves humans. He has plenty of interaction with the zookeepers before the park opens but that still doesn't stop him craving more. We recently lost his buddy and have since been given another little red orphan, Hercules, who when big... More

Had a great time at the crocodile park, the 3pm tour is fantastic, with very knowledgeable staff presenting some fascinating information about crocodiles. Seeing these massive creatures u close is pretty amazing and it was nice to experience holding a baby crocodile. Well worth a visit.

Totally enjoyable experience, watched the croc feeding tour which was amazing to see the power these animals have in their jaws. Nice shady place for a walk around with all sorts of other animals to keep you entertained

Worth the visit. Feeding time is a must. Small crocodiles are able to be touched, a thrilling experience for kids (and adults alike).

We arrived for the croc feeding but the presenter didn't have a microphone so we couldn't hear him. Also the people crowd the fence where the feeding is happening, so others can't see anything. Disappointing. The old location and show were better.

Elaine H, Front Office Manager at Malcolm Douglas Crocodile Park and Animal Refuge, responded to this review

We appreciate your feedback. We are currently looking for a suitable microphone that the tour guides are able to use. Due to safety issues it has to be something that is not required to be hand held; it has to be portable without encumbering the guides. As you are aware, unlike other crocodile parks/zoos our guides do not remain in... More

This was an interesting and learning experience. The feeding show starts at 3pm and is well worth the money to learn about these amazing creatures. You are given a comprehension lesson on these animals and why they have survived for so long . There are a few interesting birds to see as well as dingoes etc but the emphasis is... More

Such a great place to take visitors of Broome, I've been back 6 times and learn something new on every visit!! Fraser the tour guide is awesome and super knowledgable. A proper Aussie experience, very educational and fun. If you're taking small kids, definitely keep them away from the fence as fingers will easily get eaten!! A variety of other... More
