5 star rating: Highly Recommended December 2013

My wife, 2 yound children and myself had visited Crocosaurus Cove on 29 Nov 13 and we enjoyed our time there. Besides the crocodile and other animal shows, what left a lasting impression on all 4 of us was a staff by the name of Phil who conducted the snake and reptile show with an assistant. Phil was energizing, humorous and most of all, humble despite his vast knowledge of the snakes and reptiles that he handled. He was also very hospitable and fair - he invited not only my family but as many other visitors as possible to handle some of the creatures (with care!) during the reptile show. We were very thankful to be given the opportunity to do so. While I cannot speak for the other visitors, my family told me that they had learnt a lot from Phil's lively sharing and it made our stay at the Cove and in DARWIN a highly memorable and academic one. For all potential visitors, please try not to miss Phil's reptile show.

Great for the kids, but for me, I could have passed on it. Really meant to visit with grandson but he couldn't make it so still came for him in his place but really not my cup of tea.

Very intersting watching the crocs sleeping. They weren't active at all. A nice place to see all the other reptiles though. Very centrally located.

2 star rating: It was OK, but could have been better September 2014

Crocs were totally disinterested. Couldn't have cared less for the occupants of the "Cage of Terror". Whatever you do don't waste your money on that. Feeding time was a big anti climax. Crocs must be fed too many times a day or they found the food, a manky piece of chicken with the feathers still on, not worth the effort. Very disappointed
