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.

  • You can't go without seeing alligators if you visit Darwin. In the city and is the perfect location. In the garden teems with reptiles cannot be easily seen in Japan. And though the charm is a giant crocodile. There was a powerful, bigger than you think. We can fit the camera moments into eating food.

  • Definitely worth spending a couple of hours here! We enjoyed watching other people in the cage of death. We had our photo taken with a baby croc. One of our group did the cage of death and even though...  read more »
  • Was ok, extremely hot walking around. Got to hold a baby crocodile but was forced to pose for a photographer doing ridiculous poses! This was not respecting the reptile by any means. 
  • 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.
  • lots of crocodiles, good place to go if you want to scare your husband like me. LOL. liked the snakes. and the workers were nice. the snakes were nice.
  • I absolutely loved walking through this cove - the baby crocodiles are so cute! I enjoyed all the shows by the employees and that we were allowed to feed the crocodiles. This place gives you a good insight about reptiles in Australia, particularly NT
  • In the heart of the cbd. Reptile house and aquarium was great, very lively I've never seen so many reptiles moving around, kids loved it. Crocs were impressive, you just had to be there at the right time. The entry fee allowed us in and out all day. So morning session crocs were inanimate, did the rest, out for lunch, back afterwards and the crocs are leaping a meter out of the water! One negative, clean the glass in the swimming pool for picture's.
  • Fun, educational and you can see what they look like in a pool. Also has glass walls so you can see them in the water.
