Enjoyed a great kids day out. My 7 and 5 yr old loved going from animal to animal. The Reptile show was fun, educational and entertaining for all. Get to the show 10-15 mins earlier to get up the front. You can pat the kangaroos and they are very tame, saw them take some rough play from other kids with... More

My family found this park amazing. The hands on experience with the animals is a must do for children. All staff were great, very friendly and happy to be there. Great showtime experiences with a keeper who was very entertaining to the crowd at all times with knowledgeable facts about the reptiles and animals. You will easily spend the full... More

Even if you or your kids know all about the animals, you need to go and see them up close. Get real feel for just how big some of them are. We also got up close to a wombat and Tassie Devil! The cassowary was the highlight for my 7yo and it was like a scene from Jurassic Park with... More

Our Probus club visited this attraction recently and had a walk around and a lunch provided. The Park has a great range of interesting attractions for all age groups. While we were there a large number of school children were there. The kangaroos were friendly and the lorikeets shared our dessert. The Spider Display and Nocturnal House were amazing and... More

Having visited the Australian Reptile Park previously we returned on a family visit to the Central Coast. The animal exhibits remain as impressive as ever, and the staff are highly professional in explaining all you need to know about the range of animals. The reptile show with Mick (he's very entertaining!) - featuring a variety of snakes, a goanna and... More

We hadn't been to the Reptile Park in years. We took overseas visitors to it as it is an easy drive from the northern suburbs and is small enough to walk around to see all of the animals. If you bring a picnic lunch, you will save money as the food is very plain and expensive. The displays have been... More

We had a family birthday party on Saturday and had a really lovely time. The reptiles and animals in the park are a beautiful sign and a wonder to me. A really big shout out though for the beautiful Feathered Friends Bird Show !! Such a special experience. Informative and relaxed with just the right amount of digestible facts. Loved... More
