    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.

    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.
