This is one of the must do attractions when in Broome. It is located 15 km out of town, and is only open 2-5pm. The fact that it only open for 3 hours is a good thing, because it makes visitors focus on the 3pm feeding. Crocs tend to spend a lot of time just sunning themselves. However, at 3pm... More

We have been to every Croc Park in Australia, what makes this one unique is the guide commentary and ability to get close to the monsters in safety. There are some giants here. Hold a baby croc and take as many photos as you like, without being gouged for the privilege, informative & enjoyable, a must do in Broome. Loved... More

Our 3rd year running to the Croc Farm. We love it! Every time we learn something new about these prehistoric beasts and every time we are equally as entertained. Ben was a great tour guide. See you next year guys

Great place to spend a few hours. Multiple exhibits. 'Ben' is a passionate and informative guide! Some unusual native species to see and to learn about their habitats.

We visited the park a few days ago and my kids are still talking about it. We really enjoyed the tour and our guide Ben was very informative and happy to answer all of the kids questions. We visited in the hottest time of the year and it was very hot so make sure you bring plenty of water and... More

The park is out-of-town on the main road, open 2pm to 5pm. Make sure you're there for the 3pm tour, you'll see a lot more crocs at this time. Otherwise lots of birds in cages, a few kangaroos and the odd dingo. Not a cheap afternoon but definitely something different to do.

We visited the croc farm with our 4 kids, we all enjoyed the day. The croc feeding was really good to see and very informative. The park is well run, friendly staff and lots to see. I highly recommend this.

Upon arriving and going through the mouth of the big crocodile to the store and cashier, I thought, this is impressive. But once you pay you $35 per person entry fee, this is were I stopped being impressed. A poorly constructed "Wildlife Park", with a considerable number of crocs, but also with several other very sad looking animals (birds, flying... More

Thank you for your review. Malcolm's vision was to create a wildnerness park where the animals that are rescued can live in an environment as close to their natural habitat as is possible in captivity. All the animals in the park have either been rescued/surrendered or born in captivity and hand raised. Where possible they are released however those that... More
