Regularly visit Rex and the reptiles with a school group each year and it never gets dull. Terry the croc is still amazing and the stories Rex tells continue to amaze the kids. Great to see soo many students hold a snake for the first time and overcome a fear but at the same time, through Rex, develop a healthy... More

We wanted to see thorny devils and there was a marvelous display outside with three of them in it. The keeper even moved one to a better location in their enclosure so we could get a nice picture. Ruby the perentie was happy to be patted. There were lots of different snakes and lizards and a good nocturnal house. If... More

Looks can be deceiving. When arriving at this attraction, one wonders what reptiles can possibly be on display. Once inside, all doubts disappear. Snakes, lizards, a turtle and crocodile are all on display. The staff who provide the information about the displays do so in a knowledgable and, somewhat, humorous manner, while at the same time being very professional. The... More

There were a lot of different reptiles on display and even running around. The person explaining all the different species and showing them in real life was very knowledgable. I loved being able to hold them and feel the different reptiles for myself it made it all in an an unforgettable experience.

Ok, so we pulled up outside and were a little put off by the modest structure. However on entering the building, this was clearly a place that knew and love its reptiles. We had a great experience with the kids getting up close and personal with all sorts of reptiles - being licked by a blue tongue lizard, hugged by... More

A good experience and handling of reptiles. My wife was enraptured. I was just happy to be there and to see the enjoyment of others. The crocodile feeding was awesome.

The wide range of reptiles will make your skin crawl and a weird sensation of connection. The simple little critters are homed in large spaces with all the comforts and environmentally respectful areas one could hope. Its not a zoo in the true sense and is really good for seeing the animals your scared of before those long hikes down... More
