They knew that the temperature would effect the animals actually coming out but offered the experience anyways. So when we went to do the event the whiprays didn't come out at all. Which was very disappointing

Come and meet the friendly, 2-meter-wide whiprays of the Cove, and enjoy the unique experience of hand-feeding them under the expert guidance of experienced handlers. Take the opportunity to learn more about these inquisitive creatures in this close encounter.

With full-day admission to Crocosaurus Cove included in your ticket, you are free to explore it at your own pace. The Cove boasts of hosting the largest display of Australian reptiles in the world, and is the home of some of the most massive saltwater crocodiles in the country.
