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.

Close to the city, easy to access. Good size for young kids (3 year old and 1 year old). Some areas tired and in need of a revamp. Don't miss the reptile area. Check online program for tours and activities.

Lots of crocs, big and small. Also snakes and lizards. Has an OK snack bar as well for when you're feeling peckish.

Wow this was definitely a highlight of my trip to Darwin, the fact they let me take my disabled son in to have the same experience as myself made it even better. To be so close to a croc is unreal

Worth a visit if you're in Darwin. The Cove has plenty of things to see and is definitely an 'NT' thing to do. You have the option of swimming with one of the crocs (in a capsule of course). Be warned, it isn't cheap and...More

Inbelievable experience! Very highly recommend! The only thing I have to say is that the photos are very pricey and because of how much the cage is scatched its hard to cleary see faces.

Not a bad attraction but didn't have the X factor for me. I've been to a few croc farms and personally I like the more real and down to earth farms. Lots of great displays here and very good display of taxidermy crocodiles from all...More

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.
