A great place to see local and not so local reptiles up close and safely. Took the kids and we all had a lovely time and got to know more about the snakes and lizards - even have a chance to touch them. Worth an hour or so depending on the interest of the kids or adults. In summer worth... More

This tiny center is a good way to spend some time with the reptile and also cuddle them, which is rare but you have to bear in mind that this activity is available 3 times a day and if you don't do it, the entry price is too expensive for what you can see. So manage to go there for... More

We went on a rare rainy day which was good because most of it is under cover or indoors. There is a dark gecko room where if you time visit right you get a talk and to touch and hold many of the reptiles. Otherwise there is an indoor and outdoor area with various snakes and lizards, even a crocodile... More

A number of dangerous snakes. At least they were behind glass and and not on the ground in front of my foot! Large Iguana wandering around where you walked. Guide kissed it - not for us, all reptiles have Salmonella!!!

The reptile centre is a little on the small side but more then enough to keep you occupied. There is a lot of information on all of the reptiles and it is fun to spot them all. The staff here are knowledgeable and care about the reptiles they have. While we were there they had Ruby, a lizard, out and... More

We had a wonderful demonstration of reptiles, including a python that a couple of people in our group got to hold. We learned the reptiles to watch out for and the ones who watch our for us. We were on our own to tour various cages, pens, to see the reptiles in simulated environment.

A great rainy day activity (yes, it rained today!). 3 rooms of reptiles on view and a small outdoor area with a large croc and some lizards. The best part is the very informative show which is put on 3 times a day and afterwards there is ample opportunity to hold the reptiles. Kids loved it!

From the outside this place looks small and you'd think that there would be much to see. There are 3 rooms plus an outdoor area to see all manner of local native snakes, skinks and lizards. The real plus for this place is the infotainment show put on by one or two of the keepers. This was both funny and... More

The place is nice and the people that work there are also very enthusiastic and kind with visitors. If you like wildlife is a good place to see weird animals from the australian Outback in front of you. You can also touch several of them which may or may not be better for you. However the entrance is still, in... More

A great hands on experience. The kids really enjoyed handling the animals, and the staff are great. Probably the only time we get to handle a bearded dragon, ever. :-)
