This place has very knowledgeable and friendly guides and staff. But the main attraction is creepy if you're not a fan of snakes, crocodiles and slithery creatures. I nearly ran out when someone announced one of the snakes was about to eat a rat. That said, I did learn a lot about these creatures and how to deal with snake... More

The people know their reptiles, we all learned some things we did not know. But they decided to make it fun as well.

My husband and I have a fantastic time here. The up close encounters were particularly good fun, and the talk was very informative. I highly recommend this!

As a town, Alice Springs is not wonderful but it is excursions like a visit to the Reptile Centre that make it special - such a variety of reptiles you would not see in major cities and appealing to all ages.

The reptiles here are amazing, from the saltwater crocodile to the wandering pet skink to the unreal thorny devils. Staff are friendly and knowledgeable - the hands-on demos and presentations are very interactive and worth scheduling into your visit. Great way to spend a morning or afternoon.

Anything that the kids can get their hands on is a winner. I'm sure that the python my 8yr daughter held was bigger than her. Not being a snake lover I nearly had a fit. She thought that it was awesome. Totally worth the money.

Really enjoyed my visit here. The best part about it was getting to actually hold lots of the reptiles, snakes included! The people running this centre are very friendly and totally love what they do. Highly recommend a visit here, a must for reptile lovers!

I did enjoy it, however for the price found that it wasnt value for money. We unfortunately attended at a time when the show wasnt on...so we may have missed out on the best bit!
