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

This place is big enough to give you a good day but not too big that you race around to see everything and then tire. Kids were afraid of things and squealed with delight and fell in love with things and found tadpole eggs in the pond out front. Great palce to spend a day. We really had a ball!

Second time time in the area and couldn't miss it. Excellent day out on all levels. 2 adults and 2 children, 4 and 9 were completely entertained. The talks / shows were both entertaining and informative. An excellent resource.

Loved the bush setting and how the animals were displayed. The picnic facilities looked great and the keeper talks really interesting.

Visited on an extremely busy hot Sydney day, staff did well to entertain the queues out to the carpark. Due to the huge amounts of people it was impossible for shorter kids to see any alligator feeding over the fence. Great to view koalas, kangaroos up close and kids loved dinosaur exhibit. Croc feeding auditorium was packed and again young... More

They had two huge dinosaurs that came out during the show and they also grazed around later, the kids loved it! Its well set up to take some... More
