About
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.

2016 when we saw the viral video on facebook about the Cage of Death which made us interested about it, and now it’s 2021 I can’t believe we’ve done it. It was a really great experience

🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟 Five Star Experience
Sep 2021
This is a sensational attraction right in the middle of Darwin city. There's plenty of crocodiles to see up close including the star from Crocodile Dundee. There's big crocodiles, small crocodiles and even the bones and skins from previously captured crocodiles.
There is also a reptile enclosure, fish feeding show and big croc feeding show - great additions to an already impressive attraction.
The highlight of our visit was undoubtedly the Cage of Death. The keepers select the crocodile that is most likely to engage right before you get started.
I was lowered into the enclosure and got to observe Leo swimming around me in his surroundings. He made for some great photos underwater but wasn't interested in the chicken treat.
Because he wasn't engaging, I was moved to the enclosure next door where William and Kate both participated in the feeding.
Overall, it was 15 minutes of excitement that will leave me with lifelong memories.
The staff were informative, friendly and made us feel very welcome.
We found our experience at Crocosaurus Cove to be exciting, educational and would highly recommend that you drop in for a visit if you're in Darwin.

Hi Victoria, Thank you for your recommendation, it can be quite deceptive from the road at just how much is to experience in Crocosaurus Cove! Being in the water that close to these amazing animals is truly unforgettable! Especially when you know your safe inside the cage. Hope you enjoy the rest of your time in the Top End and safe travels

Anabelle and Danni did a wonderful job with kids. They were patient and funny and very knowledgeable. We were in Darwin for a week from Adelaide and out of all the things we did there this was my son’s favourite. He absolutely loved it, thank you for making it so special for the kids. I wouldn’t change a thing about it, it was great and we as adults enjoyed it too.

Hi Georgina, We really appreciate your fantastic review for Anabelle and Danni! They are so passionate about their work with our Animals and great at sharing that with the kids! They're going to love hearing that your son had such a fun day and is taking great memories back to Adelaide to share with his friends. Hope to see you all again next time you're in the Top End! Safe travels

Scary but worth it
Oct 2021
Took my partner for his birthday and it is definitely a once in a lifetime experience. I came away from it more scared of crocodiles then when i went in because being up close to them in a enclosure makes you realize how big they are. Do it in a pair because you will need the emotional support in the cage. The staff was helpful and we bought some great photos (they are expensive though rip). Could be worth having a friend come along to photograph you to save moneys. Will never forget this experience we highly reccomend it. We went at 3:00pm and the croc we saw (Leo) was very active and even tried to bite out cage.

Hi Amelia, Thank you kindly for this awesome review of your experience in the Cage of Death with Leo! They are such incredible creatures but it is certainly smart to always be cautious and respectful of their territories, that's why the Cage of Death is the safest way to get up close and personal. Even if you need a little emotional support during the encounter! Hope you enjoy your time in the Top End and safe travels

Cage of death Crocosaurus Cove
Sep 2021
In the cage face to face with the big croc I would highly recommend while in darwin the whole event was great, from the enthusiasm of the croc handler ( if your feeling a bit down and out spend a few days with this guy you will be dynamite at the end of it.) Awesome experience.

Hi Cordbowyer01, Thank you for taking the time to leave a review, we appreciate all feedback. Its great to hear the front counter staff helped make your day as easy as possible, but we're disappointed to hear you thought the rest of your experience with us was over rated. Please feel free to email me at sales@croccove.com with details of your cage dive so we can see if there was anyway we could have worked with our crocodiles behaviours better during your experience. We look forward to hearing from you

Great place to visit, very informative and great displays. The kids did the Cage of Death which they said was one of the highlights of our trip. To be able to get so close to the crocs was a bit scary but thrilling. Totally safe. Staff were also very friendly.
