Crocosaurus Cove is a tourism venture which has operated on Mitchell St in the heart of Darwin’s CBD since July 15th 2008.


As a boldly conceived idea between 2 of Darwin’s most forward thinking businessmen – Doug Gamble & Mick Burns this $32 million venture (Crocosaurus Cove) has breathed new life into what was previously considered ‘vacant’ ‘unused’ land and converted it to what is now considered one of Darwin’s leading Tourist attractions.

The 3 storey building set on 5,000 mts2 and occupying almost an entire city block has provided the City of Darwin with a unique inner city Wildlife based attraction that allows visitors to witness iconic Top End Crocodiles from 3 months to 80 years old in 8 purposely designed displays that can be viewed from all 3 levels

Crocosaurus Cove is also home to the World’s largest display of Australian Reptiles and Australia’s first and only crocodile dive experience, the Cage of Death.

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.
