The centre manager was very interesting to listen to and the reptiles were great to see up close, I would go back again when ever I get a chance to visit again

Although it is quite small it is well worth the entry fee. They have a large variety of Reptiles and the staff are very knowledgeable. We went just in time for a demonstration and we were impressed with hands on discussion..

It's a small unassuming looking place from the outside but if you love reptiles or animals in general then it's a must do. It's well worth timing your visit for the hands on experiences. And we loved watching Terry the crocodile lift himself up for air. Welcoming enthusiastic staff. We loved it!

Visit to this centre will bring the shy dessert creatures into view and show of the patterns and colours of the creepy crawlies from nearby. A wide range of animals and very good tour guide with good knowledge.

The Reptile Centre was much smaller than what I was expecting but it was an interesting diversion. I guess we are spoilt as we have a large reptile park in our area so I was expecting something on a similar scale.

This was one of the excursions when the Ghan train stopped at Alice Springs. Our guide (Rex) was enthusiastic and knowledgeable and with the speed at which he spoke there was no shortage of information supplied. In addition to snakes, goannas and other reptiles there was Terry the salt water crocodile. The explanations and advice which he gave about dangers... More

What an enthusiastic person our presenter was. I think he was the boss man. This was an interesting and informative visit - part of the AATKings Town like Alice tour. As well as viewing an amazing array of snakes and other reptiles there was plenty of good advice as to how to stay safe in the Australian countryside.This was especially... More

Definitely an excellent selection of reptiles, including the poisonous ones. And lots of very good educational information. There is a tame goanna that you can pet (when you enter, they tell you: just the back, not head or tail). The environments for the reptiles were okay: naturalistic with some features. But I wish the animals had more space. For example,... More

Our speaker was a bit curt and seemed a bit fed up with having to talk to us but she was interesting and let us hold the reptiles which was great for photos

This was a great intro to the reptiles of the country. Educational on how to avoid and treat poisonous snake bites. Also crocodile awareness and safety. The presentations were interesting and valuable. Staff are passionate and sincere in educating visitors.
