Project Overview

The Crocosaurus Cove at the Darwin Crocodile Park is home to some of the largest Saltwater crocodiles on the planet. This unique tourist attraction proudly displays close to 200 crocodiles as well as fish and reptiles including snakes and lizards.
Crocosaurus Cove showcases the Australian wildlife in a very creative way. This facility features an acrylic underwater viewing tunnel, viewing domes and a ‘Cage of Death’ swimming experience. The ‘Cage of Death’ 360 degree viewing experience has placed this facility firmly on the map. Thrill seekers can swim in the see-through acrylic cage that is lowered into the exhibit only inches away from away from one of nature’s greatest apex predators.
Underwater viewing via acrylic windows allow visitors to appreciate the size of these magnificent adult reptiles, and pop-up domes designed into juvenile crocodile exhibits allow children to get up close to the baby crocs.  Visitors also pass through a 5-metre deep fresh water aquarium of large Barramundi and other Northern Territory species.
