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.

We enjoyed our visit, but i do think it is very overpriced. Not really that much too see, but if you are there while they are doing talks on certain areas, then it is worth it. Huge Crocs are amazing to see

Dad and I got the VIP experience and we got personal guides to the crocs and reptiles. We feed the crocs and took a few pics with the baby crocs...it was definitely an experience. I was a bit hesitant but caved in at the end. I did refuse to hold the reptiles because I wasn't a fan, the idea of... More

It's quite small, there's not actually a whole lot to see so you don't need to spend that much time there. I guess having been around the national parks seeing crocs in their natural environment it was less appealing seeing them confined in concrete pens. But it is a good way to see them up close. The kids (well one... More

This place has the largest crocs i have ever seen. Watch the feeding of these giants and see the power of their jaws.[ Larger crocs than steve irwins zoo ] If you miss a feed ing time you can get passout and return later. [Their is a good pub across the road ]

It is quite cool to see the crocs as close up and the staff tells you a little bit about every animal. But the place is just a few water tanks with stones and crocs in it. I was expecting something different.

Visited a couple of times for corporate functions and had supper and drinks. An excellent venue for visitors or locals to get up close to some truly massive lizards. Staff brought out a selection of reptiles for the visitors to handle and photograph. Feeding the baby crocs was a favourite.

Want an amazing up close & once in a lifetime croc experience then be brave and do the Cage of Death. We got into the cage with the Royal couple Will & Kate. When they pull the cage up so you are just sitting on the top of the water you can eyeball the croc up close and feel his... More
