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.

Croc cage

I really enjoyed cage of death experience. Reptile enclosure is great. Able to hold a croc snake and lizard is so worth it.

Great intro to crocs
Nov 2021
We did the VIP Croc Feeding tour on our second day in Darwin and it was well worth it. You get a guided tour of the whole park, and you get to hold a baby crocodile as well as a whole bunch of lizards and snakes. The best part is getting to feed one of the big crocs.
