Spent a day here with my boyfriend and really enjoyed it. Lovely photos of the many animals, lots of info and the talks were enjoyable. We were like big kids! Nice to see kangaroos wandering around among the visitors in the park happy to be photographed! Well worth a trip and I thought it was reasonably priced also.

Spent the entire day there listening to talks, photographing the extensive list of animals, feeding kangaroos and cuddling daisy the wombat. The Tassie devils, giant tortoises and the beautiful display of birds were a photographers dream. Keep your eye out for feeding time for Elvis - a 5m crocodile. Good amenities - nice variety of food with some healthy options... More

Really good zoo with many reptillian sights, friendly Wallabies and of course a Koala. The kids loved this place & I have to say it is one of the better 'zoo' type places to visit

Simply by spending a whole day listening to the guy doing the talks is very well worth it. The spider milking show is also awesome. The guy who does most of the talks is extremely knowledgeable, funny, witty and makes it really really interesting to listen to him over and over and over ... kids and adults alike. The park... More

Being from the US, I loved the up close and personal look at some animals that I have never seen before. My favorite experience was feeding some fuzzy, cute wallabies and kangaroos! The park features many shows and we watched one featuring several giant reptiles and a very entertaining guide. Kids would love this place - though we loved it... More

We really enjoyed the Reptile Park. This is the 2nd time we've been (the first was probably in 2011) and it is well worth it. The spider and reptile worlds are really well presented and the shows, feeding sessions and keeper talks were entertaining and informative. We got to pat a Galapagos Tortoise and a couple of snakes and kangaroos.... More

Various animals and shows to enjoy. Kangaroos wander around the picnic ground and enjoy being patted. The park has a large wonderful playground area for the kids, and large picnic area. The park itself isn't huge and is an easy walk around to see the various enclosures. You can bring a picnic lunch or snacks, which is advisable as the... More

We loved our visit here - a 2 year old, a 4 year old and Gran. This small zoo is a delight with healthy looking, well cared for animals, birds and reptiles and a staff that is helpful and friendly. There's a full schedule of shows, demonstrations and talks during the day and roving keepers with animals for patting and... More

This was the 2nd visit we've made to the Reptile Park (first one was in 2010) and while not a lot has changed, the format works really well for a fun family day out. There are lots of animals to see, and the ability to get interactive and learn about them a bit more is great for kids. The shows... More
