Kakadu National Park

Saltwater crocodiles are the world’s largest reptiles and Australia’s largest salt and freshwater predator.

Kakadu is crocodile country. There are about 10,000 crocodiles in Kakadu – and that doesn’t include hatchlings! They use stillness and camouflage to hide, and underwater stealth and lightning reflexes to catch their prey.

Spend an hour with our experienced park rangers, who explain the life cycle of crocodiles from eggs in the nest through to breeding and later life.

Their knowledge of crocodile behavior comes from first hand experience, providing insight into this powerful, solitary creature. Hear some of the local legends and find out the dos and don’ts of croc safety.
