Attraction details
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.

great place, it's amazing to see the bigger crocs up close when they're feeding them. It really gives you some perspecitve on the power these things have.

All the big cruise ships haven't enough time to drive to the Wildlife Park. This is a opportunity to see a bit wild life from NT.

On the street where we were staying so decided to have a look. We spent longer here than what we thought we would and I will bring the kids here next time we come to Darwin. Got to hold a little crocodile and went onto this platform to feed them

“Crocs are cool”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 6, 2012 via mobile

Went to see the crocs at Crocosaurus Cove on 4 October 2012. The displays are great and the crocs are awesome. If you want to get a very close look at some monster crocs, this is definitely the place. The staff there are a bit average and the croc feeding show is a bit of a dud with poorly set up viewing areas. I wouldn't bother with the croc feeding show, go to Adelaide River instead for an awesome croc show.

Awesome place to visit.

Large crocs and plenty of activities to participate.

Staff all friendly.

Don't miss the meet the reptiles or a cage of death if you can.

Its right in town - funny place for it but really close to shops. Like right between them. No wonder we had a hard time finding it, don't know how many times we drove past it!!
