This is a good place to stop while you are in the area. We had a nice time as a class. Hope you enjoy!

We arrived in time for a talk and had the chance to hold selected animals before seeing others in this large collection. There is good information about each one, including a saltwater crocodile and several deadly snakes! A fascinating place to visit.

They have a lot of snakes and lizards if that's your thing. For me the best parts were seeing the crocodile, which is pretty big, and when they let you hold a super long heavy snake and a few cool lizards

Very small, staff young and friendly. Quite disappointing. Thought there would have been more to see here. Very few specimens to see. There was reptiles and snakes inside and there was a smal outside place where there was a few more reptiles.

Going to the Alice Springs Reptile Centre was a wonderful learning experience for my 6 year old daughter. She enjoyed the exhibition and giggled at the way the the reptiles were presented to her in a very tactile way!

This was an exciting experience. Not only was the information about snakes surprising but we were able to have a large python draped around our necks to see for ourselves. Some people chose not to get that close. A perenty lizard walked around the floor among us and we could hold a bearded dragon. The venenous snakes were behind glass!... More

In this small place is packed a good amount of information. Not only you have access to see reptiles that you can't easily find and some you don't want to encounter on your own. Well organized , hands on experience and staff very compete . You will enjoy and very reasonable price .

This is a mildly interesting way of whiling away 30 minutes or so. Owned by Rex the local snake-catcher who was away when we visited. Presentation given by a competent young lady (Jenny, I think) who was interesting and informative. Loved the thorny devils but felt sorry for the saltwater croc: i really think he's be happier as handbags.

One of Australia's legendary reptile handlers operates this attraction. For a hands on experience it doesnt get much better than this. See creatures here that you never imagined.
