This is a Must if you are in Broom. Make sure you go when they are feeding the crocodiles. The centre has all sorts of interesting birds, snakes and animals.The staff are very friendly and were happy to answer questions.

Highly recommend the feeding of the crocs tour. Had a great afternoon, learnt so much from the very laid back Aussie guide. Park really lovely, very shady which was welcome on a hot day. Lady in reception also very welcoming, makes such a difference. But of course the stars were the crocs themselves, so many, all sizes and types.

Great tour. Chris was an awesome guide and definitely not for the faint hearted, close up experience during feeding time, witnessing crocs near jumping fences. Should be a must do on everyone's list whilst visiting Broome. Lots of wildlife to wander around and see, Malcolm would be proud of the way the park is continuing to run.

I have been to many croc parks in WA, NT and Qld. This is by far the best. It is not glitzy, but you get up close and the staff knowledge is outstanding. Highly recommended.

Most things closed for the wet season, this is one of a few still open during the period. We thought it would be children orientated as most zoos are. But you don't want your kids running around by themselves or poking fingers through the fence in this zoo. There are hundreds of crocs, and they are huge!! They will eats... More

Yes we are open every day of the year except Christmas Day as the animal still have to be fed even in the rain. The wet season is when the crocs are at their most active. So glad you had a good time. More

The feeding at 3pm was awesome, the staff member who took our feeding tour was so knowledgeable about crocodiles, and it was all fascinating. There are lots of other animals out there too, dingoes, kangaroos, alligators, bats, birds, snakes... A great afternoon following lunch at the Mango Place down the road at 12 Mile.

The kids loved seeing the croc feeding and holding the babies. The day we went it was very hot, make sure you bring bug repellent and a hat
