“Top stop in Alice”
Reviewed February 28, 2014

Alice Springs Reptile Centre is one of the top attractions and a must do, while either staying here, or just passing through.
We have taken many family and friends here over the years.
They have three shows a day as part of your experience to handle some snakes and lizards.
Rex (the owner), and his team, also remove many" unwanted' snakes and reptiles in the local community.
Visit the biggest private collection in the Territory and don't forget to see "Terry the croc" out the back. For more information, see the link below.;

Enjoy, you won't be disappointed!

“Hold an Olive Python and get a kiss from a Blue Tongue Lizard”
Reviewed February 23, 2014

My kids LOVE the Reptile centre which is located right in the heart of Alice Springs. Walking distance from most hostels & hotels. Well worth going there and stick around for the reptile show which is on twice a day.... I think check times on their website. It is a very interactive presentation where they pass around lizards to hold and at the end you can even hold an Olive python. Even my kids want to hold them all. Don't forget to bring your camera as there are plenty of reptiles to photograph. The kids will love it and enjoy sharing their photos for sharetime when back at school.

“Loved it!”
Reviewed February 20, 2014

This was the only 'attraction' I had planned to do while in Alice Springs. I was eager to hold a lizard, and I got my chance! I also held a snake, or rather, the snake held itself around me! All the animals seemed to be happy with the visitors. And they appeared to be kept well.
If I find myself in Alice Springs again, I'd definitely return!
