Great museum with lots of interesting reptiles. Snakes, geckos, frill-necked lizard, big goannas and a saltwater croc. Great for kids.

“Reptile Centre”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 4, 2012

There were quite a few reptiles in cages here which was interesting, the croc was a little disappointing but then the Croc place I went to Cairns was amazing.

Hi Hilary, I'm glad you liked our place but was surprised that you were disappointed with Terry our saltwater croc. Terry's enclosure has a great underwater viewing area and we regularly do impromptu demos with Terry. If you need to know anything about our animals just ask us and we are more than happy to show Terry off to the public to give you the best experience possible. Because we are a small establishment we are able to spend more time with the public.

“see it all in one place.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 29, 2012

A well run establishment with a great variety of local Territory animals on display. Regular talks on the life style of the animals, very good for younger kids and adults who are young at heart.
