Overview
More
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.

I had a great experience in the cage of death! Staff is really friendly and they know what they’re doing. Just be aware that the photos cost extra

While the crocs are in captivity they are right in the heart of Darwin CBD could spend a lot time here if you so wished crocs are primeval creatures to be respected

A great spot for a family outing to learn about crocodiles in a safe environment. The enclosures were very clean and the staff were most attentive.

Give this a miss the hefty price tag didn’t match the experience. May be ok for those with kids 6 or under though.

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

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

The handlers were very good and helpful. They made sure I got some good action from the croc. The issue was the Perspex cylinder I was in was very scratched which impeded the clarity of the view and photos. Was okay under the water but...More
