$33 adult entry per person. Nice little reptile park tucked away in a nice easy access location. My first day in Australia so my first zoo visit. Saw some sleepy Koalas (had a photo with one for $20, really nice professional photo printed via reception), alligators (again, had a photo holding one for $20). I heard a few people saying... More

We went on a family visit to the Australian Park, it was $33 for adults and $17 for children over 3. We used buy one get one free vouchers out of the Newcastle Entertainment book, so excellent value. We went with a 7 year old and a 3 year old and they had a ball, it was a great day... More

This park is great value. They put on entertaining shows all day long. It is not very large, so that you can walk around and catch all of the shows, while looking at the exhibits. They have a good selection of Australian reptiles, spiders, and furry animals. There is a large picnic area in the middle of the park, where... More

The Australian reptile park is amazing! The shows run by Mick are just incredible and funny but they also teach you what to do if you ever get bitten by a snake or spider. In the park you can hand feed kangaroos! After each show you can pay to have your photo taken with an animal, I had mine holding... More

I love this place, it is mainly based around talks on the animals, Mick is brilliant. There was a lovely baby animal show and we got to see Kenny the baby wombat, baby Tasmanian devils, baby dingos plus more. You can buy food to feed the wallabies. There is a platypus, cassowaries, Hugo the giant tortoise, alligators, snakes, spiders etc.... More

We were a bit concerned by the $33 per adult entry fee but it was well the money! The shows were entertaining and informative. The keepers were very enthusiastic! There was so many reptiles and Australian animals to see. Great area to feed and pat the animals too. A great day out for everyone to enjoy.

Visited here while on holiday from UK. Well laid out with plenty of open space. Make sure you take in all the shows, the keeper displaying/feeding the animals was very informative whilst being amusing which keeps your interest. Free roaming kangaroos which are very tame and approach you, no viciousness observed. Would have given it top marks all round if... More

A great park with very involved staff and lots of happy animals in a bush setting. It was a very hot day and in school holidays and although busy we had no trouble getting seats in the shade at all the very informative keeper talks. This guy should be on TV he is a wonderful speaker and extremely knowledgeable. I... More
