Snakes alive!

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

We had a great time at the park. The boys, ages 4 and 15 months loved it! The shows were fun and the presenter at the shows were really good and funny. 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

The Reptile Park had much to keep us occupied. There were lots of shows, with a very informative, amusing narrator (for want of a better description of him). We were there at the annual weighing of the reticulated python, which was an impressive sight.

Been to a range of large and small zoos but this one completely surpassed expectations. The staff are funny and down to earth, very easy to get around, great displays and animals look happy and healthy which makes a big difference. Much better than the zoos in inner Sydney.

Took our 10 year old son and had a great day. My son certainly learnt a lot about crocodiles. We enjoyed seeing all the animals and got to pat Hugo the galapogos tortoise. Fun day but food a little pricey.

We went a bunch of friend, and have to say we had an amazing 4 hours! The place is so well kept, with a clear focus on the treatment of the animals and the education of the public. Firstly, you must go to all the shows done by Ranger Nick, he is a true entertainer, with clear respect for nature,... More

Went during the summer school holidays with 2 kids and 2 adults. Price was $85 for a family of four. It was a bit pricey for most families to attend I think. On top of the entry fee you had to pay for water espically on a hot day I think that there should be drink bottle refilling stations. Over... More

We went here as we were in the area. Loved seeing the koalas, the platypus, Tasmanian devils, snakes, spiders and the kangaroos. We were just enchanted by the hand reared resident kangaroo, Sally, who followed us all over the place, so sweet and gentle. A thunderstorm cut our visit short but we did drop in on the spider section where... More

I have visited the reptile park on every trip to Australia I've made, which is roughly 8 times now. The park is simply amazing. The pet kangaroos, the photogenic koalas and the platypus are all worth the visit, but the talks are so interesting, fascinating and full of humor that I simply cannot leave Australia without having been here...
