CROCOSAURUS COVE WHIPRAY ENCOUNTER
June 22 - December 31$51
Darwin tourist attraction, Crocosaurus Cove is excited to announce the launch of their latest interactive experience, the Whipray Encounter.
This experience allows up to 4 guests to join in our afternoon Fish Feeding Show and hand feed our 2m Freshwater Whiprays. These gentle giants have an inquisitive nature and are ready to get to know you. Be prepared to get splashed!
While the Top End’s waterways are more traditionally known for their crocodiles and barramundi, Freshwater Whiprays are native to the region and are the only Australian ray species to live exclusively in fresh and estuarine waters
Freshwater Whiprays are known to make their way onto riverbanks while chasing small fish, which we replicate in this new encounter as a great way to gain a greater appreciation for these amazing creatures, up close and in a safe environment.
Tickets are now available online and full day entry to Crocosaurus Cove is included in the ticket price. Guests will be guided at all times throughout the experience and must be 10 years or older to participate.
