Often go there solo as an adult. Really excellent and very interesting. Staff passionate and animals seem happy. Has huge dinosaur on hill near freeway to advertise place.....which is a good thing, as not many people seem to know about it otherwise. This last visit I was wandering around for about five hours - so good value for money.

Before going here, I had never heard of this place (I know I've been living under a rock). My husband and I saw the signs from the motor way and decided to turn off here for a rest from driving. So glad we did. The entry fee is a little hefty, but worth it in my opinion. I LOVE animals,... More

Australian reptile park is a great place to visit to see a variety of reptiles, including snakes, lizards and crocodiles, as well as other Australian animals. It is located in the Central Coast. Great place to see and it will not so time consuming too. Tickets are affordable with parking plentiful.

The Reptile Park was our first stop on a day-long wine tour actually. We got there fairly early, around 8am, so our group had the place to ourselves. It was my first up-close experience with a Koala and I almost fainted with delight. One of the rangers had a baby koala for us to touch and take pics of. (Actually... More

What a great day. It's hard sometimes hard to find an activity to keep the attention of under 5 year olds for any length of time, but the rangers and staff at the Park keeping everyone entertained, even a few jokes to keep the adults laughing. The park had a great range of exhibits and is not too big for... More

We were on our way back from Coffs Harbour to Sydney and decided to stop in. Didn't have much time to spend. Just as we entered the park one of the staff told us they will feed the crocs in just a short while. That was a pretty interesting thing to see! We made our way to the photo booth... More

This is a GREAT place ! Loved it ! Big enough with lots to see and small enough to get around in a day. Lovely picnicking areas. Definitely worth a visit and enjoyed it more than the bigger well known one !

It's not a full day out but you can spend a lot of time at the Australian Reptile Park. We managed to walk the park in just over an hour and when you add to that family, a show, feeding the crocidiles and then a photo with a cudly animal (I don't consider snakes cudley) and if you can a... More

This reptile park is excellent value for tourists and families with kids. You can see - deadly spiders, platypus, tortoises, Australia native snakes, a vicious crocodile show, koalas, and Australian birds. Kangaroos and emus mingle with picnickers, and let you touch them. There are a number of shows which we enjoyed, which are quite funny too. You can pay about... More
