I had a great time at the Reptile Centre and even got to hold a Bearded Dragon. All the displays were set up well and the talk that was given was very informative. Great way to spend an hour or so.

A small centre that is clean and tidy but there is only so much you can take with respect seeing snakes and lizards in glass tanks. There was one crocodile outdoors in a relative small enclosure but all in all it passes a pleasant hour on - more suitable for children than adults.

I adventured to the Reptile Centre to see some deadly native snakes (and other reptiles). My expectations were met as I entered a small centre full of snakes and lizards. In addition I was advised to be on the watch and careful not to step on Ruby, today's patrol lizard who doesn't mind a pat on the side. It was... More

I enjoyed a great day here. The only place you will experience some of the many animals to be found in the outback as they're nocturnal. The wide paths and areas to walk are set out well with easy access and the caves are done to look as natural as possible. I would spend the day and it can get... More

A bit small but there is a chance that you can hold a lizard on hand and a snake on neck. Good experience.

Loved this little museum. The employees really like their reptilian companions and it was evident - how much they knew about the reptiles and cared for them. Very interesting, and it was great to have a more close up view of these creatures. Fascinating! Go to see the reptiles getting fed! Wow.

Always a good option for my own kids during school holidays or when friends are in town. Very clean well presented displays of some of our most venomous snakes, as well as lizards, goannas and perenties. If you are scared of snakes, this might not get you over your fear, but will give you a great appreciation of what they... More
