I didn’t have any expectations before we went to the reptile center. Sienna was one of the best guides I ever had on a tour. She was incredibly knowledgeable about reptiles. They had snakes, one crocodile and lizards. She also taught us the difference between...More

A really interesting place with loads of exhibits, lots of reptiles to view and even handle a few. We stayed for the talk which was really excellent, informative, funny and interesting.

I did find this place a bit disappointing. We did saw everything (twice) in a half hour. Compared with Alice Spings Desert Park with also reptiles, along with many other animals for $32 I do find this Reptile Centre expensive. The crocodile is prisoned in...More

We visited this as part of an organised tour. The person who showed us around (Andrew I think his name was), was very knowledgeable about a whole range of reptiles. This included Crocodiles (and how to be wary of the saltwater type), a wide variety...More

Located in the middle of Alice is a comprehensive display of the various reptilian residents of central Australia. There were a surprising number of venomous snakes behind glass and lizards in open pens outside. Also included is a hands on presentation where visitors can handle...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
