(3.8/5 based on 1,300+ reviews on the web)
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. Our Darwin trip itinerary builder makes visiting Crocosaurus Cove and other Darwin attractions simple, and helps you make a travel plan personal to you.

  • Our 3 year old was in his absolute element here, we promised him all the way to Darwin for 2 days that we were on a mission to find a crocodile and we really did. The combination of in door and outdoo...  more »
  • Great to do once & tick off the bucket list but quite expensive really. $250. for 2 people & then $100 on top for photos, out of reach of most I reckon. Yeah I'm happy I did it but I wouldn't say it's...  more »
  • It was terrific to go through the air conditioned reptile exhibit. Not too often you see such a large variety of lizards. Went during wet season so crocs were a little lazy. Loved swimming with the ba...  more »

  • Was nice seeing the crocodiles up close but the crocodile we we're with just swam around us and didn't do much and when they went to feed he didn't want to eat. We we're in the tank for 25 mins and they took us out so we didnt even get the full 30mins thats advertised on the website. And the tank you're in is so scratched uo you can hardly see out of the tank. Ohh and if you want photos they are super expensive even though you pay $250 for 2 people. Would never do it again, just sort of wasted our money...
  • Great experience to see crocs in the flesh. Fantastic displays and information boards. Perfect for the kids. The presenter for the feeding had a lovely voice and was engaging and just seemed enthusiastic about her job which is refreshing to see. Great reptile display too.
  • Getting photos with 'Fluffy' the baby croc was definitely worth it. The photographer was cheerful and fantastic with my nervous daughter. The pics came out wonderfully. Great friendly staff, clean habitats. Great visit.
  • You can see crocodiles throw dirty windows. The guide speaks too fast during feeding crocodile show. I can't understand anything!
  • This is where you can see crocodiles, snakes and even get to swim in a safe cage with a live crocodile just outside the cage. It is a bit expensive but very unusual and would be on any adventurer's bucket list. There are plenty of restaurants and cheap accommodation nearby. The best times to visit is between May and October, as the Monsoon Season can be uncomfortable, although it is air-conditioned.
