Definitely spend 1 or 2 hours in this small reptile zoo. A lot of the australian reptiles are displayed, and the must do is the talks. The guide is very dynamic, explain a lot of things and you can handle some reptiles with expanations !

We were only in Alice for 2 days and were in search of something close by to do. The Reptile Centre was perfect. Entry was relatively cheap, the variety of reptile life was incredible and the 11am show was interactive and informative. The Centre is well presented and each enclosure is labelled clearly. The staff were extremely knowledgable and passionate about the animals. Great morning!

It was definitely the guide who made this attraction so
interesting. He was very knowledgeable and we learned a lot of information about snakes which could save a life one day. There was also a salt water crocodile on view "up close and personal" (behind glass). Once again,
made more interesting by the guide. A chance to pet a few of the creatures but don't worry if you have a phobia, the snakes are behind glass.
A trip to Alice Springs should include a visit to this place.

A liitle different from the usual reptile centre with rows of glass fronted displays. I walked into a room of seated people with lizards walking around the floor, snakes slung around necks and a lady binding her arm to show me what to do incase of a snake bite. And I learnt something very interesting....so go visit and you will too :)

Visited the reptile centre today, very friendly staff, a very informative talk, and you were able to hold a snake or lizard if you wanted to. Gave us pointers on how to survive a snake bite and how to avoid getting bitten, reasonably priced to get in. There were people of all ages there and every enjoyed it.
