Look. It's small, it looks cramped and it looks ugly. Until you get inside. Here you will meet the most amazing variety of reptiles of any park in N.T. The nocturnal display is a gecko lovers paradise. Watch out for the local pet wandering around though. She'll spook you for a pat! Hands down the most friendly and hospitable and... More

Right in the middle of town. Lots of reptiles to see many venomous and one huge croc. Well worth a visit.

This place is interesting, it is pretty small, displaying around maybe 30 animals. The guide gave a really excellent talk. I would recommend if you haven't been exposed to Australian reptiles. They have a salt water crocodile.

Visited the reptile centre with excitement, soon to be replaced by disappointment. Basically like a pet shop with a salt water crocodile in the back garden. We had a brief "reptile show" and got to hold a bearded dragon and a snake. It was just average, something to do on a rainy day.

We attended the reptile really just filling on time and assume the place would be small with little to see but we were pleasantly surprised when we got there. So many reptiles on display and we then attended the hands on session where we were able to handle the most amazing snakes and reptiles. We ended up staying for a... More

We had a great time viewing the lizards and the snakes, so many varieties glad they were behind glass, the nocturnal section was amazing.Well worth spending a hour or so , great information session, also a salt water croc which gets fed twice daily check feeding times as we missed out by 30 minutes. Well worth a look

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.
