Like so many of you, we’ve been paying close attention to the COVID-19 (coronavirus) situation.

Due to recent health advice, Crocosaurus Cove will be temporarily suspending operations from 6pm today, 25th March 2020. We will continue to monitor this situation over the coming weeks and advise when operations will once again commence.

This is a devastating decision to make, but as always, the most important thing to us is the health and safety of our customers, staff, animals, and communities.

For all guests with future bookings, we are offering a range of flexible cancellation and re-booking options, all without penalty. Our team will reach out to future booking holders over the next few weeks to make arrangements.

Please keep an eye on our Facebook and Instagram pages, as we will continue to care for our animals throughout this temporary closure, and do our best to provide entertaining and educational content for you all along the way!

Thank you all for your support. We wish you well and look forward to welcoming you to Darwin on the other side of these unprecedented events.

The team at Crocosaurus Cove
