To start the day off, grab the family and head to Crocosaurus Cove. Whether you want to hold a baby crocodile, visit other scaly friends in the reptile enclosure or feed the crocodiles, this adventure park is the perfect place for the whole family. The main attraction is the Cage of Death; a fifteen-minute crocodile dive in a transparent cage, watching the 900-kilo crocs feed and swim around you. If you’ve ever wanted to see what a croc’s teeth look like close up, take a dive at Crocosaurus Cove and get your heart rate up and your blood pumping. This is sure to make you work up an appetite and tire everyone out from an adrenaline rush!
