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.

Missed this place last year. Son and friend had booked cage of death trip here so went with them. We were pleasantly surprised, didn't think it looked much on the outside but it was absolutely great.

Wasn't sure what to expect but, it was a great time. Wouldn't actually spend the money on the croc tank though . Our guy that did the snake feed-talk was absolutely entertaining and would recommend just on that 🐍

Very average for the price😞large areas to walk. Not good for persons with mobility issues. Crocs seen just asleep except for the divers tank. Again I wouldn't spent the money. Couldn't see much. Looks like it could do with s good manager and face lift.

I was there 2 weeks ago, the cost of going into the cage was approx. $175 for 1 person it was about $280 for 2. I am sure that includes the photos.
