  • An essential place to visit when in Alice. The Thorny Devils are a truly amazing critter. Make sure you get to see one of demonstrations, very informative and you can get up close with some lizards and a python.
  • We all need to be snake aware and this is the place to find out about snakes in and around our town. It might just save your life.
  • Great show and explanation. Could ask questions. And got to hold lizards and a python
  • Are you afraid of reptiles? You can see many reptiles with Ausie trademark. Plus the most deadly snakes and pythons. A Crocodile from Darwin waits you here too.
  • Great time at the centre, heaps of Aussie reptiles to see. You've gotta see the demo to get the most out of it. Hold a snake and other reptiles. Learned heaps. It's not a huge place so you don't need a lot of time, but the talk goes for almost an hour.
