Cage of DEATH!

A few months back we headed up to Darwin for the night as it was my Puffy's birthday. I surprised him with a Cage of Death dive at Crocosaurus cove
It was SUPER scary to say the least but so awesome and definitely a tick off the bucket list for both of us. 
We did the double dive so we were both in the cage and purchased the disc/photographer before hand as we had no one to take photos from the viewing deck. It was $100 for the disc and we ended up getting hundreds of photos so for us was totally worth it. 

We stayed at Youth Shack backpackers which was just opposite Crocosaurus Cove so was in a great location for what we wanted to do. I found alot of the accom in Darwin to be super expensive so for the one night this worked for us. Was a little loud but as we found out Darwin is a party town with many tourist's and most of the workers from overseas on working holidays. 

Went and visited Fannie Bay Gaol which was on the way to the Darwin military museum. The gaol was free entry with a gold coin donation and we found it interesting. I think we spent an hour there wandering around and having a look at the old cells, hanging room, accom etc. 

After the Gaol we headed up to the museum and again were pleasantly surprised. The inside of the museum is just the normal stuff but once you get outside they have all the really cool old vehicles, outlooks, old tunnels that were used, great view of the beach.. so many things to look and play with!!

The Croc we dove with was called CHOPPER.. like we weren't already nervous! Ha

As you can see we had a blast in the cage with Chopper and got some awesome photos and memories we can keep forever. WORTH IT!!

Overall Darwin was a great place to visit, I really want to get back there and go through the top end of the outback as well :)
