Crocosaurus Cove, located in the heart of Darwin city, allows visitors a unique, up close and personal view of Australia’s iconic saltwater crocodiles.

Bringing together some of the largest Saltwater crocodiles in Australia and boasting the world’s largest display of Australian reptiles, Crocosaurus Cove is a must-see attraction when visiting Darwin and the Top End.

Crocosaurus Cove is also home to the famous Cage of Death – the only cage in the world that brings you face-to-face with Saltwater crocodiles!

Every dive includes 15 minutes in the enclosure with one of these massive reptiles. Regular feeding by the crocodile handlers while you’re actually inside the cage ensures a very personal, face-to-face encounter that has to be experienced to be believed!

Photography, including GoPro footage, is available for your dive to capture your experience and ensure you’ve got the evidence to show your friends and family!
