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.

  • A great venue to see some of the characters that have plagued the water ways of the NT. Was great to see and experience a fish feeding session and also a croc feeding session. Well worth a visit, and ...  more »
  • Great distraction from work and its amazing how the staff has these prehistoric beasts trained. Heard them say "good boy" to a HUGE croc after it inhaled a large chunk of meat. 
  • You can get around it quickly or take your time. It's mostly outdoor so it's hot. He pass can be used all day and you can go in and out. Oh and they have booze. Only in Darwin hey !

  • 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.
