Small but jam packed

Great afternoon spent with very knowledgeable guides. Standard set of native Australian animals. Criddle's the real draw though.

I'm not really a fan of Zoos, Bird Sanctuaries etc or of anything making money of keeping animals in captivity so wasn't that excited when my partner booked the tour. But was really impressed with this establishment and the effort they put into running this hour tour. Some of the crocodiles would have been destroyed if they were not given... More

This is about 18 kms out of Broome town, but well worth a visit. It is very well set out with plenty of wildlife to see. The main attraction is feeding time at 15.00 hours, which is a 1 hour tour. I got to hold a baby croc, which was my highlight. There were plenty of kids there that just... More

There are limited attractions in Broome (beach etc. excepted) so we were keen to see this place. We turned up at midday to find it closed - it opens at 2.00! - and were were not the only bemused traveller as another family were also disappointed. I am sure that the times are advertised and we just missed them, so... More

Thank you for your review, we do appreciate your feedback. In response to your points raised, we can assure you the crocs you saw are safe and live their lives until they die naturally. They have been surrendered to the park as they were deemed a nuisance in the communities and cannot be released as they are territorial and will... More

Incredible to see these crocs up close. We really enjoyed the afternoon here, not just seeing the crocs but also the dingo's and particularly the barking owls. Whilst ur kids are older and were not with us in this trip, it is a wonderful experience for families. Holding a baby croc is exciting!

I must admit that the entry fee to this park, considering it is only open for a few hours per day, did leave me very sceptical that I was going to find it worth while. I have to say though it is one of the best attractions I have seen in Broome! The work this park puts into education and... More

Learning about the different types of crocodiles and alligators was really interesting. The keepers were very informative, and I enjoyed holding the baby crocodile (the jaw is tied shut, so don't worry about it biting you)

We checked out the Malcolm Douglas Crocodile Park and Animal refuge last week when we were in Broome as part of our drive around Australia. I like that it is only open for a few hours a day making it seem very exclusive and a bit more like a conservation ground than a carnival like a lot of other croc... More
