Trip Planner: South Pacific / Australia / New South Wales / Gosford / Zoos & Aquariums / Australian Reptile Park
Australian Reptile Park brings you to reptile and wildlife paradise. Get up close to the animals: See the giant 165 kg (363 lbs) Galapagos tortoise, pet a possum, and hand-feed the kangaroos. You can also watch the alligator feeding at the lagoon and wildlife shows starring Burmese pythons and dingoes. Head to the snake and venom collection to learn about production of antivenin used for saving lives. Don’t miss a chance to see one of largest diplodocus replicas and Elvis the crocodile, dubbed the zoo’s unhappiest resident, since an attack on park staff and their lawnmower left him with two lost teeth. Make Australian Reptile Park part of your personalized Gosford itinerary using our Gosford vacation planner.

Very disappointing. Wouldn't waste my money again!! Constantly walking up through corridors to get to see exhibitions. Wasnt fun. One or very little animals in area's. Bad advertising not many animals that said were there. Old and out dated. Just money making. Very disappointing! !!!!

Visited in a Sunday morning. Good place for families, specially for kids. There's a picnic area with bbq where the kangaroos stay around. If you're expecting to see many animals, there are better zoos. But it's a good place to spend the day, take photos with pythons and gators, have fun with the kids.
Although small the reptile park is family friendly and the staff are great. If your expecting a zoo, this is not the place for you. Its a reptile park with a few other animals. My 6 year olds loved it just the way it is
A small park but not nearly as crowded as taronga. The reptile shows seem a bit forced, the animals would obviously prefer not to perform. The free range kangaroos are friendly and they have a good collection of animals. Food prices are rough
I enjoyed this "zoo" very much! All staff members were super friendly. Ranger Mick gave outstandingly entertaining talks that were both informative and hilarious. The weather wasn't too hot so the kangaroos were more social than usual, and they let us pet them for a while. Great photos to take home with me. We also posed with "Fluffy", a huge female python! Wow. Incredible experience for us (ages from 5 to 40) and I will definitely go back to the Reptile Park during my next visit to NSW.
