This centre is only small and in the centre of town but they offer 'hands on' experiences with lizards and an olive python. Even have 'Ruby' the goanna roaming the inside areas of the complex. One crocodile, several varieties of snakes, a few goannas and other smaller lizards.

The Alice Springs Reptile Centre is truly worth the visit. It has fabulous displays of snakes and lizards. We got to hold a huge snake that took about 6 of us to hold up!

This place is a must see in Alice Springs. The staff are unbelievable and so passionate about the animals. I fell in love with ruby the Goanna and the thorny back lizards were amazing. Loved that place and right in town.

A lot of fear about our reptiles stems from ignorance, get in here and see & learn from an excellent display and informative staff.

Two hours in the reptile centre was the best time we had in Alice springs.. We love the introduction of those native reptiles. Also it has several thorny devil (moloch horridus) in the centre.. Hard to see them in other places.. Lucky we had a close look down there.. The most interesting part is the educational session where we learnt... More

This is a classic NT experience. I have never had so much opportunity to hold reptiles. Very friendly - the persons children wandered in at one point. I love it.
