What you can expect

Plunge into the ‘Cage of Death’ solo and come face-to-face with some of Australia’s largest saltwater crocodiles! This attraction is perfect for those who dare to get up close and personal with these amazing prehistoric creatures all on their own. Don’t miss out on this one-of-a-kind experience!

After receiving full instruction and a safety briefing, make your way into one of the three purpose-built transparent Cages of Death where you will be suspended above the crocs pen and become gradually submerged into the very same water as the crocodiles! Over the next 15 minutes, tread water as you come face-to-face with massive saltwater crocodiles! Don’t forget to smile as an onsite photographer will capture 360-degree views of you and the crocs inside and outside the enclosures! (Photographs are available for purchase for an additional expense).

One of the best experiences of my life

One of the best experiences of my life. All the staff are fantastic and could not have asked for a better time. The whole place is amazing. Worth every dollar spent. My 3yr daughter was a little bit scared when she saw me being lowered into the tank, but that soon disappeared and was very happy watching me.

I had a great time in the Cage of Death

I had a great time in the Cage of Death. Initially, it was hard to see Axel as the sun was shining on a part of his enclosure so even underwater there was a lot of glare coming off the shiny metal. However, once he moved over closer to the cage I was able to see him really clearly.

I got there and checked in straight away it was a very easy process

I got there and checked in straight away it was a very easy process . Than we read and signed paperwork I even had time to get photos with a baby crocodile called Fluffy . Next I got walked over to the cage and got put in. The first crocodile was not interested so they pulled me out and eventually it worked with the next crocodile. It was a amazing experience to be so close to a crocodile but safely. The staff were friendly and helpful just the photos were quite expensive so if possible bring your own go pro.
