  • Good for a wet day. Croc looks a bit sad in his concrete pool but better than some centres.
  • it's was fun, you can touch some reptiles during some show. A guide does a visit sometimes during the day. Check the timetable before.
  • Friendly and knowledgeable staff and quite a few specimens to examine.
  • Such an awesome little hidden gem in Alice Springs! There are lots of reptiles to take a look at and even hang out with and pet Ruby the monitor lizard. The staff were incredibly friendly and their talks are very interactive. They include holding an olive Python, bearded dragon and a blue tongue lizard! I highly recommend stopping here if you are in the area!
  • Great little reptile park. Was a bit worried about the tour guide there standing oess than 5m away from the croc with his back turned to it for ages while he spoke to us. The croc was keeping a VERY close eye on him indeed!
