They are only open for a few hours in the afternoon and the "show" includes walking around the park looking at and talking about all the crocodiles so no need to do this beforehand. Gift shop is expensive but has some interesting things not available elsewhere. "Show" includes everyone getting to hold a baby crocodile which was great, they had... More

This is an awesome park. We rate this as a higlight of our time in Broome. Not only is it educational but intense when you see the crocs up close and are only seperated by a chicken wire fence. Totally worth the visit and would have paid double to go.

Malcolm Douglas crocodile park is a must do in Broome. A few years back they moved out of town to a larger premises so the drive is about 12km out, but we'll worth it. Get up close and personal with these powerful beasts. The guides know their stuff too and will tell you everything you've ever wanted to know about... More

The host of the tour gives a really informative feeding tour and throws some humour in too. It's great the each enclosure tells you where the Crocs are from and they even have names. Stay for the feeding it's the best part!

We really enjoyed visiting the Crocodile Park. Other than the crocs, they have a really good variety of bird life and other Australian animals. Definitely worth a visit. We visit every time we go to Broome as the kids always want to go back. Best part - no technology needed. Kids see wildlife at its best.

This place is awesome...I don't think any animal scares me more than a crocodile, but what an experience to see them up close and personal (behind a fence lol)! I went with my brother and his two kids (6 & 4) and we ALL loved it! So much to learn and I honestly can not believe that the guides/handlers do... More

Highly recommend a visit here. Over 7000 crocodiles and it is an up close encounter. Nothing but a wire fence separates you from the crocs and anyone stupid enough to put their fingers through same could lose them! We even got to hold a baby crocodile. Don't miss the feeding at 3pm. Really impressive.

We were pleasantly surprised at the size of the park and the enormous numbers of crocs here. There were were salties, freshies, alligators and some old rogue crocs. The guide gave lots of stories & facts about these awesome animals. The feeding was great & you can handle a croc if you like ( only a small one ). Entry... More
