Holidays in Crocosaurus Cove

Holiday Travel Guide
Crocosaurus Cove featuring zoo animals and dangerous animals

This wildlife park offers the chance to admire a number of local species, as well as the safest encounter you can have with a saltwater crocodile.

Crocosaurus Cove is surprisingly interactive for a wildlife park that houses notoriously ferocious species. It offers up-close encounters with crocodiles for those willing to pay for the unique experience. Jump into an immersion cage with huge crocs, feed a small juvenile or hold a tiny baby “saltie”.

At this crocodile farm, you won’t just be watching the feedings: you can actually take part in it – from a safe distance. The Fishing for Crocs experience offers visitors a chance to see juvenile saltwater crocodiles leap into the air to catch the tasty morsels that you dangle in front of them. To really get your heart pumping, enter the Cage of Death: a clear, partially submersed cylinder from which you can witness the feeding of a mature crocodile over 5 metres (16 feet) long.

For those who prefer an encounter with a smaller version of these predators, go to see the hatchlings and hold a baby croc. Feel their scaly hides and webbed feet while it is still safe to do so.

Crocosaurus Cove is also home to 70 other reptile species, including the large pig-nosed turtle, which has leathery skin over its shell instead of plates. Observe dangerous Northern Territory snakes and huge lizards known to locals as goannas.

Another highlight is the aquarium where you can see barramundi fish and the critically endangered sawfish that hunts by sifting sand with the “saw” on its nose. You can also see the feeding of other strange local fish, so submerge yourself in this Australian aquatic experience! Stick around to watch the feeding of freshwater rays known as whiprays.

The park has a gift shop where you can buy souvenirs made from crocodile skin, such as belts and handbags.

Crocosaurus Cove is located in the heart of Darwin, an easy walk from most accommodation and transport. The park is open daily, except on Christmas Day. You have to pay to park in nearby streets or parking lots. Crocodile feeding and the Cage of Death experience are not included in the entrance fee.
