Small with a very knowledgable staff. Nothing else in town was open, so we ended up there by default and had a great time. Glad we went.

Great for familes to see some of Ausralia's reptiles up close, especially Ruby the friendly Goanna (who wanders around allowing you to stroke her!)

This visit exceeded expectations. Not only are the reptiles interesting to see up close, but the presenter does an excellent job passionately explaining and teaching the key points about these fascinating creatures. Definitely worth the visit.

Thoroughly enjoyed our visit. Magical insight into the reptile world by our friendly and knowledgeable speaker Shay. This is a must visit in Alice and is a great sanctuary away from the heat or the thundering rains whilst we were there.

Really interesting collection and talk by warden/owner on safety with snakes etc. Felt a bit sorry for the lonely alligator in his pool though.Some of the lizards were really fascinating.

We spent a great few hours in the Reptile Center of Alice Springs. The staff was extremely friendly and knowledgeable. We were given the opportunity to hold various animals and snakes. Highly recommend it, you won't be disappointed.
