We went after 3pm and got a $10 per person discount for late entry. 2 hours was enough to see the snakes and reptiles (best exhibt), alligators and crocodiles, koalas, kanagaroos, cassowaries and our 7 year old played in the playground. This is inferior to Taronga Zoo but a smaller less crowded option on a Sunday afternoon.

Visiting relatives in Australia, my wife insisted we "Had to see a kangaroo!", but since we were mostly visiting the urban areas, finding one in the wild was unlikely. The Gosford Reptile Park was the option. Not only do they have lots of interesting reptiles, they also have kangaroos and other iconic Aussie animals. The Kangaroos as especially good, because...

I've been here a few times over the years and the place hasn't changed much. Love the open area where you can have a picnic and pat (or feed) a kangaroo, and the shows are short but informative and entertaining. For a family of 5 though, it's an expensive day out for the amount of animals that you get to... More

16.11.16: Today we decided to go to the park for our 'date day' what a great place it is. Cost for 2 adults was $70, all necessary prices, time openings and shows are on their web site. We got there early (9:45am) and would suggest do the same. They start to feed in the morning, so the animals are out... More

A warm weekday too us to this attraction. We had memories of it from the eighties, and hoped to see the updated version of this wildlife attraction. We were disappointed. Particularly in the spider section, which had more plastic spiders than real ones. The reptile show was very good. The young volunteers and keepers really knew their stuff and delivered... More

Great day out for the whole family. Fun Educational shows teach you about different species of animals from deadly snakes to crocodiles an other animals. Take a walk through the vast expanses of the park and stop for a picnic or buy lunch at the food shop. There's something for everyone at the Reptile Park

I took my step son, we hot here nice and early took 1.5hrs to go over the whole park before deciding it was over priced and nothing to do. He was 8 and best part of the day was swinging on a swing. Will never go back

We arrived nice and early and had a wander around. The kids got to see a few things and the reptile show was great with a very knowledgable presenter. But after a short time we had seen everything and left before lunch. A good clean park but expensive too.
