Crocosaurus Cove Tours and Activities

Crocosaurus Cove
Crocosaurus Cove comprises the world’s largest display of Australian reptiles. The 52,834-gallon (200,000-litre) freshwater aquarium is home to turtles, barramundi, whiprays, and archer fish, but it’s the saltwater crocodiles—some of the largest in Australia—that star. See them in displays designed to be viewed from three levels.

The Basics
Even though it’s located in the middle of the city, Darwin’s Crocosaurus Cove lets you feel like you’ve wandered out into the Top End of northern Australia's wilderness. Get 360-degree views of giant reptiles or come face to face with them (through a plexiglass safety panel) in the Cage of Death. See some 70 species on display in the Reptile House, learn about the powerful jaws of a croc during a feeding demonstration, and brush up on crocodile trivia in the World of Crocs museum. 

Things to Know Before You Go
  • Crocosaurus Cove is a must-visit for families and first-time visitors.
  • Some experiences, like the Cage of Death, often sell out and should be booked ahead of time to avoid disappointment.
  • Plan to spend two to three hours to explore all the park’s attractions and shows.
  • Crocosaurus Cove is wheelchair accessible.

How to Get There
Crocosaurus Cove is located just outside of Darwin’s city center, close to Bicentennial Park. You can get there via the Stuart Highway or by walking from most downtown attractions and the Darwin bus station. Darwin’s hop-on hop-off bus stops right out front and is an easy alternative to public transit.

When to Get There
Crocosaurus Cove is open daily from 9am to 6pm. Try to plan your visit to coincide with one of the nine daily reptile shows, including fish and crocodile feedings. You’ll find a schedule on the Crocosaurus Cove website.

Meet a Movie Star
The oldest crocodile at Crocosaurus Cove is also the most famous. Burt, an 80-year-old croc weighing some 1,500 pounds (700 kg), starred in the movie Crocodile Dundee alongside Paul Hogan and Linda Kozlowski.
