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

Like all the reviews I've read about this Croc farm, I've only positive things to say. Ben our guide was friendly, knowledgeable about his subject and amusing. So exciting seeing what appears to be an empty still lake and then a huge crocodile jumps out of the water to catch his food. A very entertaining and informative afternoon.

16km out of town well worth the visit. Only open from 2 till 5 but by the time you get there have look around its time for feeding at 3. We were able to hold the baby crocs (17 months old) Staff member Ben was very knowledgable and gave a great commentary on the walk. Plenty of opportunities to take... More
