The Reptile Park is a nice place to take the kids for an afternoon. There's a bit to see; but not too much (I think the entry price is a tad steep considering what's on offer). Kids enjoyed themselves, I felt it lacked in reptiles. Overall a nice day out with young children

Cost of this zoo was similar to large zoos, great access to traditional Australian animals such as koalas, kangaroos, echidna, and wombats. Kangaroos roamed freely and allowed us to pat them. We saw the friendly wombat at gate of enclosure poking it's head out for a pat. Great park for the kids. Spider enclosure interesting, my 2 year old loved... More

Have not been here in about 15 years so decided to take our 2 year old for an adventure. Out of everything it had to offer he enjoyed the turtles and the birds the most. Such a wide range of animals and reptiles to view and interact with. Some great walk through enclosures also for the family to enjoy. Could... More

Have not been here since the early 1990s. It is not overly big but is still worth a visit as it supports breeding programs for most animals. Still a good day out.

We went here on a Sunday in spring and it was not too crowded. There's a good assortment of creatures with very tame kangaroos wandering around. There are several talks and demonstrations during the day which are very entertaining and informative. It makes a good family outing.

You can't visit the Central Coast without at least popping in to the Reptile Park. It is a bit pricey, but a wonderful experience. Big kids and little ones will enjoy their day. And how can you forget Ploddy?! She is a Coast celebrity!

We had a yearly pass, so visited the Reptile Park many times in all weather. Something for everyone. The children's playground area is good for all ages, and we enjoyed exploring different parts of the Park each time. Highlights for us were the indoor displays and having hands on experience with some of the animals. Food choices at the kiosk... More
