Cage Of Death, Crocosaurus Cove Park, Darwin City, Australia

If you have a few days to spend at the Top End and you're looking for an up-close-and-personal experience with a crocodile, but don't have a lot of time, then the recently opened Crocosaurus Cove could be the place for you. Located on the corner of Mitchell and Peel streets, Crocosaurus Cove is right in the heart of Darwin. Crocosaurus Cove isn't large but, to make the most of the space it has, the reptiles can be viewed from a variety of levels. One of the crocs, Burt, is more than 5m long, weighs over 700kg and is thought to be more than 80 years old. He was captured in 1981 in the Reynolds River and went on to star in the movie Crocodile Dundee.
To view the crocs from above, there's a staircase which has an aquarium wrapped around it and leads to the next level. The first floor is the place to head to if you're looking for adventure. It's here you can take a ride in The Cage of Death and be lowered into a croc pen while inside an acrylic cage. For those too young to go in the cage, or not feeling adventurous, there's a swimming area alongside a croc pen that allows you to swim close to a crocodile while separated by the clear walls of the enclosure. If you want to get out of the Northern Territory heat for a while, check out the World of Crocodiles. This enclosed, airconditioned exhibit has displays of crocodilians from all over the planet.
