(1,600+ reviews on the web)
Wildlife Area
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.

  • Was a little disappointed to visit the cove. The displays feel old and the place could use an upgrade. The staff were excellent and very helpful but if you have seen crocs at Australia zoo, it's proba...  more »
  • The crane did not work. Yes I got a refunded and look around but you would think someone would be there to fix it especially if it got stuck in the water but may be thats just me.  more »

  • Exceeded our expectations as a reptile park in downtown. Small but full of fun. My kids love it. Thanks
  • The Cage of Death is a must do adventure when visiting Darwin. Great day out for all ages. Just remember to keep your fingers in the cage :)
  • Nice big crocs and a decent size and experience for an inner city zoo. Great aquarium and reptiles. Not an expert but the handling of the baby crocs for photos looked a bit cruel.
  • Its a good close experience with Crocodiles but little pricy... Strongly recommend for the people on short vacation
  • Don't go. The cage of death is animal abuse, and it's clear that the crocodiles are stressed. It's not a place you leave feeling happy, if you have even the smallest amount of respect for other species than your own.
