Crocosaurus Cove Darwin (Review)

I recently visited Crocosaurus Cove during a 48 hour trip to Darwin as a guest of Tourism NT.

While it’s main purpose is obviously to showcase crocodiles big and small what impressed me equally about Crocosaurus Cove was the wide range of Australian reptiles on display and If I’d had more time instead of doing underwater camera tests for a magazine article I would also have investigated the freshwater aquarium which has Barramundi, Sawfish and more.

Entry is not cheap but if you visit all all the croc enclosures, see big crocs being fed, feed small crocs yourself, swim in the tank next to the crocs, explore the Reptile house and Freshwater Aquarium then it should take up a few hours of your time and be worth it.

Holding a baby crocodile is including in the ticket price (if you want to do it). Their skin feels smooth.

You can view crocs from above at various viewing areas or from below in the swim tank separated from one of the croc tanks by a glass wall.

    Snorkelling ‘with’ the crocs would have been great fun. I’m sure that the WHS people insisted on thick glass!

  2. Interesting one, the pictures of crocodiles are really nice. its good that WHS people take so many precautions as they the most dangerous one.

  3. That’s definitely a great adventure! It’s fascinating to watch crocodiles do their tricks and try to be nice to you. The glass wall part’s really cool though.

  4. Well, all these animals are a bit scary but still I love to interact with such animals. Your photo of holding a baby croc is just awesome and I wish that I also hold a baby croc one day.
