While we were at Broome, our group wanted to see this park. We had a great guide through the park and he spoke about the crocodiles as he feed them. So were huge, the biggest being 5 metres long. The tour takes about 1 hour but it went by very quickly as it was amazing how many crocodiles they have... More

We went to visit as we enjoyed thd Malcolm Douglas TV shows. It was interesting , the knowledge of the guide was good . Don't forget your mossie spray , we did go in Feb so its the wet sesson however even in the dry I think you would have trouble with them as well .

Thank you for your feedback and we're pleased you had a good visit. The mozzies are particularly bad when it has been raining so normally in the dry season from April-October they are not so much of a problem. More

Heard of this place by word of mouth down in Perth. Not as well advertised in the Broome region. However, it is an excellent attraction! Staff were very informative and obviously very passionate about the crocodiles and helped to make an extremely enjoyable afternoon. Beware only open from 2-5pm with feeding time and tour at 3pm. Also, bring lots of... More

We couldn't find this attraction even though it is supposed to be just off the main highway. For such a supposed popular attraction you would think there would be signage that you couldn't miss.

How disappointing you were not able to find the park. We are located approximately a 15 minute drive from Broome on the Broome Highway heading towards Derby. There are 2 signs on the road, one indicating the park is 500 metres ahead and then the sign into the park. The Broome Visitor Centre and our website pages also provide this... More

I don't like crocodiles, but I enjoy the park and spent 2hrs looking at crocs and other animals. The feeding tour is highly recommended

This is a must do while in broome. The 3 oclock feeding tour is awsome. With our guide hand feeding the crocs while giving an educational talk about these magnificent beasts. The rougue crocodile section is worth checking out as well. The tour costs a few dollars but was worth it in my eyes. Make sure you take plenty of... More

A hot and humid day when we visited but was worth the look at the feeding of the crocs; some of which were huge!!! Take along insect repellent...you get eaten alive! Otherwise you are up for an extra cost on purchasing when you get there. Gift shop and cold drink purchases very expensive.

Thank you for your feedback and we're glad you enjoyed your visit to the park. Unfortunately as we live in a remote area of Australia everything has to be sent by freight to Broome which increases the cost of our most basic supplies. We endeavour to keep prices to a minimum and are on par with other retailers in Broome... More

Make sure you apply plenty of insect repellant. Lots of biting flies. Awesome seeing such large crocs up close with a well informed guide.

Thank you for your feedback. As soon as it rains in Broome all the mosquitoes come out and have a great time eating everybody, including the locals. Unfortunately this is one of the problems incurred during our wet season. Both the Shire and ourselves do fogging but those pesky creatures keep on coming back. Thank you for sharing your advice...
