We have a visitor from Croatia who we took here and she loved the experience. She had the opportunity to pat kangaroos and be close to other animals such as koalas and giant turtles (and maybe closer than she wanted to be to crocs and snakes. Entry price is reasonable and the food, while pricey, was fresh and there was... More

I've been to the Australian Reptile Park quite a few time now. I love taking guests here, especially if they have kids. There's lots of space for a picnic, even a BBQ area. The best time to go is around Spring when all the new baby animals are born.

We took two of our grandsons to the Australian Reptile Park a few weeks back. We missed a few of the exciting things like feeding the big crocodile Elvis but there was plenty of other shows and things to do. We were just in time for the first of the afternoon presentations in the show pit so we took that... More

Haven't been to park for over 10 years and it was lovely to revisit. Only complaint was the wait in long line to actually get into the park. Once on, is well mapped out. Park has friendly happy staff who enjoy their jobs and know about their reptiles. Shows we're informative and fun! Park was clean. Maybe need cameras up... More

We actually enjoyed this more than the Steve Irwin zoo, the keepers are more eager to talk to you as people rather than talking pamphlets or robotic cheerleaders, these guys genuinely enjoy their job and passion. There are reptile shows where kids and adults alike are encouraged to touch various lizards and and snakes, but there's no pressures. Loads of... More

Drove down as a small family and have been here before. It's easy to get to, plenty of parking and cost is $28 adults, $15 child, $20 concession $ $75 family (4). We had vouchers printed from the internet which gave us a free entry upon 1 paid customer, which helped with the costing. This park is spaced out and... More

You can’t take your kids to Australia without allowing them to witness the most ferocious creatures that live there can you? Although we’d been up north we didn’t have time to see any crocodiles so far so we were really looking forward to seeing crocs at, what must surely rate as one of the biggest croc centres in Australia, we...

Not too far from the City of Sydney, a bit over an hour, but so many things to see and the best ever "show time" presenter - we were back 3 times in one visit. Restaurant could be better, but you can bring your own food and drinks, so... Will be back!!!

Annual family pass is good value if you live nearby. 2.5 visits covers the cost so effectively after that is free. Plus annual pass gives discount in shop which has some great curios for kids also includes drink vouchers for take away shop. Plenty of picnic tables. Great new refurbished playground for kids & they even had a bouncy slip... More

We headed to the Australian Reptile Park last Saturday; it was my first visit there since 2002. The park's entry fee of $28 per adult is quite a good price for such an extensive wildlife park with plenty to see and do. One can easily spend the entire day there. The talks by Ranger Mick were fantastic and thorughly entertaining,... More
