Crocosaurus Cove, Darwin Reviews
Really good value for money, for the basic entry fee you are able to feed the crocs as well as hold one of the baby ones. If you want to see them feeding the big ones they also do two free shows a day. As well as the crocodiles there is a large reptile habitat that has a plethora of snakes and lizards. The staff there are all friendly and are more than willing to engage with you and spend a fair amount of time answering all your questions. Well worth a visit if you are in Darwin, $35 is a steal in comparison to many to other attractions around Australia.
Definitely worth a visit and you will easily spend 3+ hours here as they have interesting, interactive and informative presentations almost every hour. You get to see fresh water and huge saltwater crocodiles; with information posters. There is a huge reptile display which is very modern looking. The reptile presenter was hilarious and informative. There is an aquarium with many fish and a big stingray. There are toilets and a cafe which sells drinks, snacks, food and alcohol. There is also a big souvenir shop (accessible without entry fee). In Dec 2017 the general admission was $35 per adult and is well worth it. We paid an extra $95 per person for the “cafe of death” which was also an awesome experience. As with any speciality experience photos are expensive; we paid $99 for all digital photos and the 15 min video (see my photos for all prices)
This place keeps animals captured in such small cages. All the animals looked really unhappy and are not active at all. I felt so sorry for those creatures. I feel even more sorry that I've visited this horrible place. Please don't make the same mistake as I did. Maybe it's much better to visit an animal sanctuary instead, where they try to save captured animals or even better, visit animals in nature, in their own natural habitat. I would strongly not recommend anyone to visit crocosaurus cove.
Enjoyable, make sure you visit during feeding time and have a slowmo camera ready cos there's going to be some cracking videos to be taken. We didn't do the cage of death (bit $$) bit you really get to be up close and personal with the big guys, just on the other side of glass window. Really get a sense of how big they and and how fragile us mere humans are next to them. There is a large reptile exhibit too, again you get to see some of the world's most venomous snakes from just few centimes away from your face. Took about 2 hours to walk around the entire park, the day pass will let you go out and come back in if you miss the feeding time.
Place hasn't changed much in the last 5 years (that I have been anyway). Kids love it and there is an excellent history video of Darwin that you must sit down and watch.
