  • Fantastic place to see an assortment of Aussie reptiles. Really happy to see all the animals in clean spacious enclosures. The first aid advice and interactive animal session was great. Well worth the entry fee. The outdoor area is especially great as the large monitors, thorny devils, blue tongue lizards etc are out in the fresh air and able to bask in the sun. Highly recommend a visit for animal lovers.
  • The reptile park is a must visit! They have a heap of snakes, lizards and other creatures. The staff were very knowledgeable and friendly
  • Great variety of reptiles! Staff was very passionate and approachable! Make sure you check out the thorny devils!
  • Holy shitsnakes... if you ever stand a chance to fall in love with the most lethal snakes in the universe, your prospects are great in Alice!!!
  • Whoa! The owner did the tour on the day that I visited. It was great, Rex showed us the fangs of snakes and he has a really fun way of making everyone feel included in the experience. Ask to go on the guided talk at certain times in the day. Its awesome!
