    We went as a family and it cost a ridiculous amount of money for us to get in. There were hardly any activities happening while we were there, and when we asked a question of one of the staff, it almost seemed like an imposition for her to answer. The only staff members who acknowledged us was a gentleman at the "swim with the crocs", and the really nice American photographer, who took the time to talk with us. Felt like this was a complete waste of time and money. Would not recommend to anyone to go there.

    Located in the heart of Darwin, it's easy to find.
    The entrance fee is $32 per person (basic entry) and then you pay extra for things such as the "Cage of Death".
    Not a bad attraction, but for Aussies who are "used to" our native animals it might seem a little lack-lustre.
    The water is a nice colour and allows for clear viewing of the crocs and there is some great aquarium spaces filled with some really interesting freshwater fish - including freshwater Saw Sharks which are really unique creatures.
    The reptile section was my favourite.

    Crocosaurus Cove is an amazing attraction in Darwin that you have to see. You get right up close to crocodiles and many other reptiles as it holds all of Darwin's reptiles there. You can feed baby crocs, hold them and even dare to go in with a grown up saltwater croc in the cage of death. You get your money's worth and more in this great place. You learn loads and have great fun their as well!!!!!

    Exhibition is good. Cage of Death is very expensive for a very short time for immobile crocs. Staff is polite at best, but makes you feel like you are just another tourist with money. Offer for photo taken during Cage of Death is a total ripoff.

    If you REALLY have to swim with crocs, try to find out what's the best time to do it when they actually move. Or better yet find another place who really care about your and the animal's experience.

    Saw a huge array of different sized/aged crocodiles, more crocs than I've ever seen in one place at one time. It was fun feeding the baby crocs and watching the big ones get fed by the trainers.

It's a pleasant enough diversion for an hour or two, but I think overseas visitors would enjoy it more than Aussies.
