WHAT TO EXPECT

Crocosaurus Cove is home to the world’s largest display of Australian Reptiles and Australia’s first and only crocodile dive experience, the Cage of Death. The 3 story building has provided the city of Darwin with a unique inner-city wildlife attraction that allows visitors to witness iconic reptiles and mammals of Australia. This ticket provides access to the Crocosaurus Cove Whipray Encounter where you can hand feed and touch these friendly freshwater creatures.

 

Whiprays are a species of stingray with a distinctively shaped, rounded pectoral fin disc, a projecting snout, and a thin tail without fin folds. Its topside is colored brown and its bottom side is white. It may occasionally travel onto land and can technically breathe out of water for up to 7 minutes. This bottom-dwelling species is an active hunter of small fish and shrimp and typically found in tropical Australian rivers



A ticket to the Whipray Encounter gives you access to these curious creatures. An experienced handler will show you how to hand feed one of the friendly 2-meter-wide whiprays. Get up close to these inquisitive freshwater rays who are also very keen to get to know you! A maximum of 4 guests per tour ensures this experience is an intimate, personal, and educational experience. The gorgeous whiprays are so much fun to feed and full of personality!

 

A ticket to the Whipray Encounter includes full-day admission to Crocosaurus Cove. The minimum age to participate in the encounter is 10 years old. Please arrive at least 15 minutes prior to your booking time.
