Crocosaurus Cove

Crocosaurus Cove is home to some of the largest crocodiles in captivity as well as housing the ‘world’s largest display of Australian reptiles’ – all in the very heart of Darwin city in the Northern Territory!

Crocosaurus Cove


Crocosaurus Cove brings together the largest saltwater crocodiles and is the world’s largest display of Australian reptiles. Visitors can also put on their swimmers and take a dip with the crocs, enjoy the Fishing for Crocs platform and smile for the camera while holding a baby saltwater crocodile. There is also an array of barramundi, archer fish and whiprays in a 200,000 litre fresh water aquarium and beautiful turtles in the Cove’s Top End Turtle Billabong.
