Crocosaurus Cove

As a boldly conceived idea between 2 of Darwin’s most forward thinking businessmen – Doug Gamble & Mick Burns this $32 million venture (Crocosaurus Cove) has breathed new life into what was previously considered ‘vacant’ ‘unused’ land and converted it to what is now considered one of Darwin’s leading Tourist attractions.

The 3 storey building set on 5,000 mts2 and occupying almost an entire city block has provided the City of Darwin with a unique inner city Wildlife based attraction that allows visitors to witness iconic Top End Crocodiles from 3 months to 80 years old in 8 purposely designed displays that can be viewed from all 3 levels

Crocosaurus Cove is also home to the World’s largest display of Australian Reptiles and Australia’s first and only crocodile dive experience, the Cage of Death.

Cage of Death

Experience the thrill of swimming alongside a 5m + saltwater crocodile! Marvel at their size and prehistoric features, and prepare for your heart to start racing as you catch each other’s eye.

Every Cage of Death dive includes 15 minutes in the water with a massive saltwater crocodile. Regular feeding by our handlers ensures an up close encounter that must be seen to be believed!

Operated by an over-head monorail and designed for 1 or 2 people per cage*, the Cage of Death has you suspended above the crocs before being lowered into the pen for an up-close encounter.

Meet one of our famous inhabitants: Wendell, Axel, Leo, or William and Kate and be wowed by this unique once-in-a-lifetime experience.

Reptiles are cold-blooded animals and their energy levels and feeding habits can vary depending on weather conditions and temperatures. Throughout the dry season, May-Sep, feeding performances may be affected due to lack of appetite, while during the build-up in October and November record high temperatures may also have an effect on feeding and the positions of the crocodiles in the water. Our Crocodile handlers have a wealth of experience when it comes to animal behaviour and every effort will be made to ensure you have an up close experience, however please note that we can not guarantee that crocodiles will feed year round.
