My family and I spent a Sunday there recently. Our two year old daughter loved getting up close with the kangaroos that roam freely in the central part of the park which doubles as a picnic area. She also enjoyed the play area and going up and down the slide. Wasn't so keen on touching the small snake being carried... More

If you have overseas visitors, the Reptile Park is a must! Recently visited with overseas visitors, one who has not travelled to Australia before and with their 18 month old son. They loved the access to the kangaroos, as well as feeding them, not to mention seeing the wallabies,wombat, dingo babies and koalas (many with a joey attached on their... More

My grandchildren loved the reptile park. patting the kangaroos, spotting the alligators, entering the bird cage to find a bird sleeping within hands reach, the excitement of seeing BIG and small snakes safely. I enjoyed sitting in the park area eating lunch while they burned off their excess energy amongst the kangaroos, tortoises, and the swings. A wonderful day for... More

Spending a relaxing day at the Reptile Park is a great way to recharge the batteries. The location is beautiful, the enclosures are easily accessible and the close up animal life is enthralling. Really enjoyable.

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
