Owner description: 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.

In the middle of the street...you cannot imagine what's like on the inside...

You can also go into a swimming pool, inside of a type of cage, with a crocodile! It was awesome!

“Creepy!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 3, 2014

Very accessible, gives a great introduction to crocodiles - they are humongous and quite creepy. We were lucky to be there at feeding time for the young ones - lots of action.
I felt that entry ticket $32) was quite expensive, the facility looked tired and amenity very basic. Gift shop was very expensive.
