This place is not huge but has an excellent collection of Australian reptiles: snakes, geckos, even one salt water croc. We had an excellent demo of some of the critters, and you could hold the bearded dragon, blue-tongued lizard and even wrap yourself in a python if you so wished. Ruby the goana wandered around and was happy to be... More

Interesting displays with local snakes, lizards etc. Displays are clean and well presented. One saltwater croc on display. Staff member who did the hands on presentation seemed annoyed and just wanted to get it over with. Place is tiny and you are in / out in no time. Too expensive for what it has to offer.

Don't worry about the size of the reptile centre. Take your time and enjoy all the enclosures and animals. You don't have to hurry like in a zoo. First of all the staff is one of the best we met at our journey, visiting zoos and animal attractions. Very knowledgeable and always open for questions and explanations. Ask for the... More

I took part in one of the afternoon tour with the encounter with 2 reptiles (I can't remember what they where, but one of them I remember it was called Pickles) and a Olive Python called Lucy ! The staff where friendly and willing to answer questions ! The one let down that the tour stopped at that and you... More

This place is small but is a must do. The staff were very knowledgeable and it's the only place we went where there is a window to watch a Croc under water

The Alice Springs reptile museum is easy to walk to and easy to find, just blocks from Todd Mall. The staff welcome you and they are knowledgeable about the local reptiles you may see in the area. I was to leave on a camping trip into the bush the next day, and it was helpful to be schooled about the... More

The owner is a bit of a showman but gave an interesting talk. Did not like how he treated the crocodile though.

Small with a very knowledgable staff. Nothing else in town was open, so we ended up there by default and had a great time. Glad we went.
