Crocosaurus Cove, a fairly new attraction in Darwin City, has quickly garnered the reputation of being one of the most sensational wildlife experiences in the country. The crocodile park’s 200,000-litre aquarium is a true ecosystem with all sorts of scaly marine life. The stars, of course, are the 200-plus crocs that call the sanctuary home. Many of these living, breathing specimens are among the biggest saltwater crocodiles in the world!
Here, you get to do more than simply observe the creatures from the comfort of terra firma. You’re diving right in to swim the crocodiles! Submerged in a glass cage (nearly invisible from below the surface), you’ll sit in awe as these fantastic creatures swim right up to say hello!
Overwhelmed by their massive frames, you’ll likely tremble for the first minute or two. Give it a moment. Your brain will eventually deem the situation safe and you can start moving around at ease (it’ll be as though you’re just another one of the crocs)! The Crocodile Cage of Death is the only experience of its kind and Australia and probably the closest we have to a real-world Jurassic Park!
And if you’re not quite ready to take the plunge, we also offer experiences that simply grant you access to the park. Spend the day with the family learning all about marine-reptile life!
Or, maybe you’re looking for big thrills but without having to towel off. Another one of Crocosaurus Cove’s most popular attractions is the crocodile feeding experience. This guided tour of the crocodile park concludes with a white-knuckle interaction where you and your brave mates help feed the hungry reptiles!
Sure, they’re scary. But look past the sharp teeth—their social behavior, hunting techniques and cognitive skills are immensely fascinating and complex. Swimming with crocodiles offers you a rare first-hand look at one of the oldest and most resilient species on this blue earth. Discover how they outlived the dinosaurs by 65 million years!
