Report a problem crocodile button 

When it comes to crocodiles, the Northern Territory Government takes your safety seriously, but ultimately how you behave around crocodile habitats is your responsibility. It must be assumed that any body of water in the Top End may contain large and potentially dangerous crocodiles.

The Northern Territory Government Parks and Wildlife Commission actively manages saltwater crocodiles to reduce the risk of crocodile attack across the Top End, with the exception of Australian Government controlled lands such as Kakadu National Park.

In the Top End, many people live and participate in recreation activities in and near waterways. People need to be CROCWISE and know how to enjoy the waters in safety.

CROCWISE integrates public education and active crocodile management by the Northern Territory Government to reduce the risk of crocodile attacks in the Top End.

To report a Crocodile to the Crocodile Management Team, please call:

8999 4691 or 0419 822 859 (Darwin)
8973 8888 or 0407 958 405 (Katherine)
