My boyfriend and I visited this centre during December which is a very quiet month. This is a fantastic time to go if you want the entire place to yourselves and you get to have a one on one experience holding a snake and reptiles....More

This was my favourite place in Alice. The staff loved the reptiles and it shows. The reptiles get time out in the sun during the day is impressive.
We saw some of the lizards being fed...that was fun to watch.
The presentation is worth staying...More
