The Malcolm Douglas Broome Crocodile Park sits
about a 15 minute drive from Broome. It’s open from 2-5pm. It was well worth the visit to see how impressive and aggressive crocodiles can be.
The park contains many other animals native to the area. Wallabies, kangaroos, birds, bats, and dingos can all be found here, as well as American alligators.
The feeding/tour starts at 3pm with a discussion about crocodile young. After showing us a few one year olds, their mouths are strapped shut and they are passed around to anyone that wants to hold them.
After the babies, it’s time to see the adults in action. The main pond has about 40 crocs, and they come right up to the fence around this time for a feast of chicken and fish. It’s here that you can see how aggressive they get, chomping at the food and each other. Quite a few fights broke out amongst the group as they fed.
