I went to Snakes Down under today and it was such a great experience. Staff is informative, personable, and take time to answer questions throughout the day. There is always something happening whether it's a show, feeding or encounter. You can also feed kangaroos and emus. One of my favourite parts of my time here in Australia.

This was a four hour experience with a variety of reptiles and Australian Fauna ( kangaroos, emus and wallabies and koalas) Well presented and delivered in a manner to keep both adults and children interested. Between the presentations there is time to visit the various displays. Adults and children are given the opportunity to handle and feed the animals. A... More

Particularly enjoyed the show with the snakes and crocodiles even tho Macca the croc wouldn't cooperate with the handler, the girls were amazing. The grounds were well maintained and the Snake enclosure had lots of information... More
