Overview

Crocosaurus Cove allows visitors a unique, up close and personal view of massive saltwater crocodiles, crocodile hatchlings, juveniles as well as being home to the World’s largest display of Australian reptiles and the famous Cage of Death. The Cage of Death is the only cage in the world that brings you face to face with some of the largest Saltwater Crocodiles in captivity. Remember to bring your bathers and ‘Swim with the Crocs’ in our unique swimming area that allows you to get up close to our very active juveniles. Don’t miss the chance to feed these hungry juveniles as part of our latest attraction, "fishing for crocs" ...this is a photo opportunity not to be missed. Meet the reptiles and learn more about the Top End’s unique and favourite critters such as Western Bearded Dragons and Olive Pythons. Check out the barramundi in our 200,000 litre freshwater aquarium and don’t forget our gorgeous top end turtle enclosure. All this and a daily program of fun & interactive reptile activities await you at Crocosaurus Cove, in the heart of Darwin City.

The animals there are good, a great range of reptiles and it’s cool to be able to see the crocs up close (particularly the baby ones which swim at eye level). As for the cage of “death” I’ve been more scared of a pet fish...More

Awesome time spent in Darwin checking out the Croc’s. The sheer size of them alone and longevity they can have is mind boggling, the Cage of death was amazing and the Guys and Gals looking after us during the experience was amazing, thank you so...More

Great experience with crocodiles, Cage of Death best to do in warmer months due to crocodiles more active.

Classic bait and switch. Buying my entrance I said I want to swim with the crocs. There is a swim with the crocs which is pointless. You are in a cold pool with glass next to baby crocs. No goggles provided so you cant see...More

The display is a bit tired but you still get to see plenty of Crocs make sure you are at the feeding times to get the most out of the trip.

This attraction was way overpriced for what it holds. There are very large crocodiles (Leo, Axel, Burt from Crocodile Dundee and William and Kate). There is an exhibit for some turtles, an aquarium, a place for newly hatched crocs with bubbles that you can look...More

Spent a couple of hours in this place and at over $100 for the family we expected more than was offered. This might be because we have just spent two weeks in the wilderness seeing crocs in their natural habitat. When you have been up...More

We had a great time in the Cage of Death. Initially it was hard to see Axel as the sun was shining on a part of his enclosure so even underwater there was a lot of glare coming off the shiny metal. However once he...More
