Stay away from the crowds, particularly the ones with kids, and you will have a great visit. Lots of interesting reptiles and other animals - don't miss the platypus exhibition. We got there early (9am) but it was still busy (school holidays). If you stay long enough you should get a chance to stroke a snake and a lizard (at... More

We went with our toddler and grandparents. Generally the park is well set out, it's kept very clean. We all really enjoyed the day. The presenter for the animal shows was excellent with wonderful wit. Also there's a great childrens playground on-site too. My only negative would be that the park was larger and the show areas larger to allow... More

A wonderful family day out - something to satisfy everyone. The enthusiasm for wildlife that the staff exude is contagious. Very interactive exhibits and talks at the various enclosures. Lovely relaxed ambience and the animals are obviously well loved and cared for. I sometimes go just for a picnic on the lawn with the wallabies, take your esky if you... More

We attended the ARP with a 5yo & 2.5yo on a very warm summers day. Luckily we arrived early and beat the crowds who arrived late morning/lunch time. Arriving early allowed us to freely move about the park at the pace and interest of the kids! There's also a great play ground which allowed us to break the visit up... More

The talks and shows were the highlight and we learnt alot from them. Lovely place to bring your lunch for a picnic. The food from the canteen is... More

If you want a special day out with your children, this is it.. this is not just a reptile park. Yes, there is Elvis the croc and a large lake of alligators, there are snakes and spiders! Your children will love the koalas, the Tassie devils and the huge tortoise. Check out the feeding times and the show time where... More

A well laid out and excellently presented wildlife park. Lots of shows and the keepers were walking around with animals for everyone to see throughout the day. As the name implies, the park is obviously focused on reptiles, but does not lack enough other animals to keep everyone interested. And if the little ones start to get too bored, there... More

We stopped in on our drive up the coast and enjoyed an afternoon seeing Australian wildlife up close. The koalas were sleepy but it was great that the kangaroos were in an open grassy area where you could pet them. Gasps from the kids when a joey popped it's head out from it's mum's pouch! There was plenty to see... More
