Crocosaurus Cove

Crocosaurus Cove is Darwin’s ultimate urban wildlife experience, offering up-close encounters with Australia’s most iconic reptiles.

Boasting the world’s largest display of Australian reptiles, Crocosaurus Cove offers 9 interactive reptile shows daily. Admire a 5m saltie as he eats his lunch during the Big Croc Feed Show, hold a snake or lizard during the Meet the Reptiles Show, and feed a jumping juvenile crocodile from the Fishing for Crocs platform. Then, finish off your visit with a souvenir photo of you and Fluffy the baby crocodile.

For a truly unforgettable experience, go for a dive in the Cage of Death! The Cage of Death activity offers swimmers the opportunity to swim alongside our saltwater crocodiles in a controlled environment that is safe and enriching for both the crocodile and the visitor. Regular feeding throughout the experience is done in a way that encourages the crocodile’s natural instincts, giving swimmers the opportunity to witness our saltie’s infamous bite force under the supervision of trained handlers.

We hope to see you soon at Crocosaurus Cove.
