Not being keen on reptiles, we were uneasy about this tour.However the owner Rex was so enthusiastic and kept us all enthralled with his information and jokes.Very surprised at how much we enjoyed this time.

This place is small, but packed with local reptiles. It was fun to handle some of them, and to see the big lizard wandering around the office. Nice lecture about them, too!

We visited here as part of the half day "A Town like Alice" tour and enjoyed it immensely.Normally I am not a snake/reptile person but Rex made the whole experience interesting and informative. Learned things about snakes and snake bites I never knew. Well worth the visit and much more worthwhile than the RFDS across the road. Rex should be... More

Thought it would be a quick visit to the Reptile Centre. But we we're there for 2.5 hours. The feeding and interaction with the reptiles was amazing. Rex knew his stuff was graciously handed around his bearded dragon, blue tongue lizard and olive python. A nice surprise to see some death adders up close and the #1 and #2 most... More

My kids (14, and 12) experienced the reptiles in real time. They were excited to hold the live reptiles in their hands. This was the only place we actually saw them in action. We came in at about 10:30 and watched the 11:00am show.

My kids (16, 13 and 9) love reptiles so we went to a few places that had them on display. This was the only place we actually saw them in action. We came in at about 10:00 so we could walk around until the 11:00 show. We ended spending most of the time at the outside bearded dragon enclosure where... More

There was a great selection of snakes and lizards and even a few crocodiles. We had a few hours to kill in Alice springs before our flight out and this was an ideal distraction.
