Great day out!

We have been many times and always love it. We went to a 2 year old birthday party last year and it was absolutely fantastic!

We visited the Reptile Park for an extended family picnic. It was fantastic, not only were the shows great as usual, but there was heaps for all ages to experience. We had children aged between 2 and 16 and all were entertained all day, even the teenagers. Some of our adult visitors had not been up to the "new" location... More

You can pat and feed the kangaroos here at Australia's Reptile Park. Large picnic area where kangaroos roam free. Buy food for $1 at the kiosk. Koalas are also here although $20 to take a koala photo is a rip. Lots of reptiles and spiders. Also alligators and crocodiles in a huge lake. There's also large a kids playground for... More

The Australian Retile Park Somersby is pretty cool for the kids and the kids at heart. I have been a few times now with my kids and the seem to enjoy going every time. There are a lot of fun exhibits to see, the reptile show is fantastic as the keepers seem to be very knowledgeable about the different reptiles... More

To entertain both children and adults alike. All of the animals are easily accessible and there are picnic tables around the park. A truly lovely place to introduce children to Australian wildlife. Kangaroos roam freely and seem happy to allow children to hug, pat or feed them. The organised feeding, handling of the animals is great allowing time between each... More

Visited the park sometime in Mid July with the kids and they absolutely loved it. They saw crocodiles snakes koalas very close and they were fascinated. The crocodile show was really good too and not to be missed. Definitely a see. Just ensure that the day is nice as it can get quite cold

The staff passion for their work is obvious from the moment you arrive and the shows are entertaining and informative. The rangers are very approachable and happy to talk about their charges. A great improvement for all would be an opportunity to buy better coffee.

Firstly the Ranger who does the shows is great entertainment! The animals are great and the wildlife photos are awesome! (Cost extra). My daughter and i had a photo with the baby alligators and she loved the place. She wasnt so interested in the animals that day but thankfully the playground in the park alone is almost worth the admission!... More

A great day out....take a picnic, you can leave it in your car (esky) and get it later ( just get your hand stamped to come back in ) it saves you carrying it all around with you. The shows are fabulous...the staff are all at the top of their game and friendly so they make it fun and informative... More
