Our Kakadu Gorge enclosure replicates one of the most diverse ecosystems in the world. Inhabitants of WILD LIFE Sydney Zoo's Kakadu Gorge includes Rex the giant saltwater crocodile!
WILD LIFE Sydney Zoo's Kakadu Gorge replicates the complex and diverse ecosystem of the Northern Territory's Top End. Come eye-to-eye with Rex, one of Australia's largest crocodiles and meet Jasper, the gentlemanly perentie. Find out more about these reptilian residents below.
The Northern Territory's Top End has an endless variety of landscapes, ranging from deep gorges and grasslands to floodplains and estuary flats, all of which are home to countless native plants and animals.
The Top End is a monsoonal area, which means there are only two seasons, wet and dry - and they live up to their names!
The dry season runs from May to September, during which humidity is low and rain stays away. This is followed by two months of what locals call the 'build-up', where thunderstorms roll in and the Top End records more lightning strikes than any other place on the planet. Then begins the wet season - the heat is ceaseless and water rules the landscape with sudden billabongs and waterfalls appearing out nowhere… just like magic.
