We joined a tour group listening to Rex, I learnt a lot from listening to Rex, he was very knowledgeable and delivery was done in a very humorous and entertaining manner.

I loved this joint. Lots of beuatiful, scary lizards and snakes. Got the chock of my life when I walked in and found a goana walking around by itself. That was pretty awesome too though.

Took about an hour to see the indoor and outdoor exhibits. The show, if we saw it, would have stretched the visit. The positive is the exhibits are either indoors or, if outdoors, under covered areas. Exhibits are well landscaped.

Hi Roachie1961, thanks for visiting us. We always encourage people to experience one of our daily shows.its a pity that you missed it as this is really what we are known for. We still offer a variety of animals to see inside and outside and the new under cover areas outside are a big plus, especially when raining. Hopefully next... More

Alice Springs Reptile Centre is one of the top attractions and a must do, while either staying here, or just passing through. We have taken many family and friends here over the years. They have three shows a day as part of your experience to handle some snakes and lizards. Rex (the owner), and his team, also remove many" unwanted'... More

My kids LOVE the Reptile centre which is located right in the heart of Alice Springs. Walking distance from most hostels & hotels. Well worth going there and stick around for the reptile show which is on twice a day.... I think check times on their website. It is a very interactive presentation where they pass around lizards to hold... More

This was the only 'attraction' I had planned to do while in Alice Springs. I was eager to hold a lizard, and I got my chance! I also held a snake, or rather, the snake held itself around me! All the animals seemed to be happy with the visitors. And they appeared to be kept well. If I find myself... More

A very small centre with several of the animals seen several times. However some good and interesting creatures to see. The hands on part is very good and worth planning your visit around the twice daily shows.

Hi AndyTaylorUK, thank you for visiting our place. You are correct in suggesting the daily shows are worth seeing, we hold three public shows every day and they are well worth attending. We do display several species several times such as the western brown snakes and bluetongues however we display different naturally occurring colour forms. The only other species displayed... More
