Crocosaurus Cove, Darwin, Australia

Advanced Aquarium Technologies gets visitors up close and personal with some of Australia’s most feared creatures in a unique apex predator experience.

Project Overview

The Crocosaurus Cove at the Darwin Crocodile Park is home to some of the biggest saltwater crocodiles on the planet.

Opened in July 2008, this unique tourist attraction draws visitors from afar to see around 200 crocodiles as well as fish, snakes, lizards and other reptiles.

AAT played a significant role in creating the facility’s acrylic underwater viewing tunnel, viewing domes and its signature ‘Cage of Death’ experience.

The Cage of Death is an intimate underwater viewing system providing a unique appreciation of the size of these reptiles. Thrill-seekers enter the water alongside the crocodiles, protected by an acrylic cage. Those brave enough to give it a try are likely to enjoy everlasting memories of their experience.

Visitors also pass through a 5-metre-deep freshwater aquarium of large Barramundi and other Northern Territory species.
