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.

This place is very underwhelming, however we arrived late in the day and were not present for any shows. I probably would not have gone here, except we decided to do the Croc dive, which was great! Ofcourse you get asked if you want to pay an extra $100 for photos as well, once you're there. I recommend just having... More

Excellent - grandson loved the "cage of death" One comment ...with the croc's powerful jaws, is it not possible for the reptile to position his lower jaw underneath the cage bottom an his upper jaw parallel to the side of the cage and simply crush the cage ??

Firstly, if you do the cage of death get a friend to take photos for you as you will get just as many good photos as the person taking pictures that works there, take the tip and save the money. The people that work there are great but it is way overpriced and everything costs $$$ Go to CROCODYLUS PARK... More

The attraction seems a bit shabby and the croc pens small. You can't help feeling it would. E better for the animals if the faculty moved further out of town for more space. The staff were great though. Very enthusiastic and knowledgeable

A nice few hours learning about theses big reptilian beasts in the heart of the city was pretty cool. The croc feeding show while tame was interesting and the photos with the baby croc had us conflicted yet sucked in to purchasing a $100 photo package. All in all a good way to whittle away a few hours.

Very good animal displays that are worth looking at but the real value is in some of the special tours you can do. I chose the croc and reptile option. Staff were friendly knowledgeable and interested in helping you have a good time. Feeding the cross and handling lizards, skin's and snakes and watching one feed was incredible.

I did the croc experience. Was fantastic. Had 2 delightful young ladies lead the group through firstly the croc feeding and handling and then the handling of the reptiles. Never thought I would have the opportunity to feed a big croc. It was fantastic. The younger ones were pretty good too. Then being able to handle reptiles and snakes. A... More

We took our grandchildren here when they were up visiting. They were fascinated by the whole "Croc" thing. They got to feed some baby crocs and be involved in a few presentations which was really great. They bought themselves a souvenir to take back with them. Personally, I didn't enjoy it. I prefer seeing them in their natural habitat.
