Malcolm Douglas Wilderness Wildlife Park, Broome Reviews
Worth a visit. I'm just glad I didn't have to feed the crocodiles! Kids will love this place.
If you're an animal lover, DO NOT GO. The tour starts with very young crocs that you are allowed to hold : they have their mouth tightly shut with elastic bands and are handed to visitors eager to take a selfie. Since they aren't too happy at being hold and try to wriggle out of your grip to escape, they end up being squeezed quite a lot - one was even dropped to the floor ! All that under the amused eyes of the two guides who shrugged away my question about how stressful that might be for the baby crocs. Then the guides go and feed the adults and the same kind of abuse takes place place : the guides dangle the food before the eyes of the crocodiles, teasing them and delaying the moment they actually give it to them, or throw the food between to crocs hoping (explicitly !!) to cause a fight. A few crocs had missing arms : "yeah well they're mostly male and in they're very territorial so ... they also fight for food sometimes ..." At that point we found the whole thing sickening and decided to leave and go home. I get that crocodiles aren't the most endearing animals, but still !! The few birds they have, displayed in way too small cages that sometimes barely allowed them to fly, did not seem better off. I found that tour very disturbing and sad although, to be fair, the staff was nice and friendly.
A last minute decision to go turned into a great afternoons entertainment. I have never seen so many crocs in one place Luke was a very informative host. Thoroughly enjoyed it. 👍Well done 👍
Second time and I love it... The tour is great.
Great place for kids to visit. Probably don't need to drag around the whole tour with kids, especially little ones, though you'd want to be there at feeding time anyway as the crocs are pretty boring otherwise!
