If you have never been up close to crocs before this is an awesome way to do that. You could literally reach out and have a CEOs feast on your arm if not for the wire fence between you and the crocs. However having seen crocs before, I felt the entrance fee wasn't justified. The park is very run down... More

Located a little way out of Broome, this park is a rather beautiful setting. It is open every day of three year from 2-5pm. This means in the winter months it is quite busy. You can wander through to see the crocodiles, alligators, snakes, birds and fruit bats. There is a formal tour at 3pm. Unfortunately the group was very... More

I was last here when they had it in town. Now it is bigger and better. Great opportunity to learn about these fantastic animals.

Really loved the personalised atmosphere. They admitted that they had not expected the 120 odd people there for the afternoon and although it was crowded they did the best they could splitting Te group up half way through.

I was keen to check this out before heading out into real croc country to get a basic understanding of the magnificent croc and boy i was glad i did. Seeing the power of them up close gives you a very healthy dose of respect for the animal. There is a range of animals and birds to see so get... More

Fantastic place to visit. It was very busy when we were there, but that was to be expected during school holidays. The park was fantastic and the croc feeding was great, especially because of the interesting commentary from the staff. Loved our visit.

Need more help to reduce group size during holidays or extended visiting hours. The park is only open for 3hrs 2-5pm daily and is $35 adult, a little steep in my mind, they've got a good thing going here! But due to the limited opening times it was packed on the day we went. The patrons get split into two... More

The staff were knowledgeable and cheerful. There was a big crowd as it was during school hols so it was hard to get a spot to take pictures. I held... More

We had visited the old croc park when it was in town years ago and were keen to see it in the new location. The park is on a huge site and open in the afternoons from 2-5pm, with a tour at 3pm. We went in school holidays so it was pretty busy, but they made sure everyone could see... More
