Crocosaurus Cove, Darwin

4.0
#2 of 35 in Wildlife in Darwin
Crocosaurus Cove, located in the heart of Darwin, allows visitors an up-close and personal view of Australia's iconic saltwater crocodiles and their hatchlings. The site houses the popular "Cage of Death", where you can come face to face with some of the largest crocodiles in captivity. Bring your swimsuit for the "Swim with the Crocs" experience in a protected swimming area allowing visitors to get extremely close to some very active juvenile crocs. You can also try to feed them, accompanied by an experienced staff member, or simply stand by for a rare photo opportunity. The site is also home to the world's largest display of Australian reptiles and a huge freshwater aquarium filled with barramundi fish. Put Crocosaurus Cove and other Darwin attractions into our Darwin trip planner, and watch your holiday take shape.

  • My son and I did the tour. Staff were very friendly and knowledgeable. Would highly recommend doing this. Great close up view of the crocodiles. We got to hold a baby croc and lots of snakes and lizards. Both of us had an amazing day. Would do it again.
  • great experience, especially for the kids. Super friendly and knowledgeable staff. we were quite doubtful but decided to explore as it was in the middle of the city, and it was absolutely worth it. good variety of reptiles too.
  • We had a great time in the Cage of Death. Initially it was hard to see Axel as the sun was shining on a part of his enclosure so even underwater there was a lot of glare coming off the shiny metal. However once he moved over closer to the cage we were able to see him really clearly.
  • "The Gang"! ... So Helpful & Understanding with Vast Tourist Trade taking Place in Darwin at the moment!!! Top Quality Goods!🐊🦎🐨
  • Awesome big ass scary crocks and the dunk tank in the water with them while feeding. A great weekend hangout for the family. Reasonable prices too!
