Being part of a Ghan excursion, we had an excellent presentation which I'm not sure that all tourists would have. The hands-on presentation was very well done and featured snakes, lizards and a crocodile. The enclosures were well done.

Not a huge place but a good variety of reptiles and the demonstration was excellent. Enjoyed getting to hold a python and blue tongued lizard :-)

We were told in advance by our guide that there were talks available at set times so we got there for the 11 o'clock one. The handlers were very skilled and very informative.

Rex, the owner, gave us a very informative, fun, interesting, and interactive tour, it is by far the best reptile centre that I've ever visited. We enjoyed a few hours here, leaving because we had run short of time, rather then because we had seen it all.

This was by far the most fun & informative reptile centre I have been to. Rex knows his stuff & made listening to his talk enjoyable. Hannah was just as informative as her dad, stealing the talk for a few minutes.

Very cool place if you are into reptiles. The demo when they brought out the reptiles for you to hold was my favourite part. Getting to hold a python was pretty awesome.
