Plenty of beasties to charm or frighten everyone - even the Red Back Spider and how to clear your house of them! The guide was humorous as well as very knowledgeable with plenty of advice for those keen on walking in the outback.

Alice Springs Reptile Centre showcased the many Northern Territory reptiles in a naturally landscaped surrounds. Terry the Saltwater Crocodile exhibit was spectacular and allowed us to get up close to this mighty predator. Certainly a major feature of the Reptile Centre was the opportunity to get close to the ‘locals'. It was a fun and educational talk on the reptiles... More

You really only need an hour or so here as it is very compact but the reptile encounters with very enthusiastic staff are great. Very clean and tidy, the animals look well cared for.

I'm not a fan of snakes or reptiles but nonetheless I found this spot interesting because we could see gohannas, bearded dragons, a thonry devil and several of Australia's many poisonous snakes as well as a python and a crocodile.

This place is not huge but has an excellent collection of Australian reptiles: snakes, geckos, even one salt water croc. We had an excellent demo of some of the critters, and you could hold the bearded dragon, blue-tongued lizard and even wrap yourself in a python if you so wished. Ruby the goana wandered around and was happy to be... More

Interesting displays with local snakes, lizards etc. Displays are clean and well presented. One saltwater croc on display. Staff member who did the hands on presentation seemed annoyed and just wanted to get it over with. Place is tiny and you are in / out in no time. Too expensive for what it has to offer.

Don't worry about the size of the reptile centre. Take your time and enjoy all the enclosures and animals. You don't have to hurry like in a zoo. First of all the staff is one of the best we met at our journey, visiting zoos and animal attractions. Very knowledgeable and always open for questions and explanations. Ask for the... More
