4.5
#1 of 18 in Things to do in Gosford
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.

  • I always loved visiting the reptile park as a kid and so happy every time I go back that it is still as good, if not better, than I remembered! It's well maintained and being constantly improved. All the staff are so friendly, informative and interested in the work they do you can really tell by how they come across in the shows and exhibits. The upgraded kids playground is amazing. The only disappointing thing was seeing some patrons not respecting the animals.
  • The park is absolutely beautiful and we just love visiting. The animal enclosures and grounds are always immaculate and all the staff are so friendly. There is the most incredible playground and not only can you take your own packed lunch but they provide free bbqs as well. Every time we come we see the animals doing something different and forever learning. Such a wonderful experience for both children and adults, love love love what your doing there guys - keep up the amazing work!!
  • Fantastic for little kids. Great playground and easy to see all the animal enclosures around a large central space. All the staff were friendly and knowledgeable. Highly recommend!
  • Loved this place. Its a great place no matter how old you are. Such friendly people, great shows for the kids, Such friendly animals.... Love love this place. Will be back again for the next special event.
  • I love how beautifully they look after all of their animals. Prices are not cheap and food choice is not great - though the fresh chips are good! Watch out for the crafty kookaburra, which is happy to steal your food! 😃 Plenty of parking, including wheelchair access. A gift shop at reception. Look out for the birds on display at reception! My favourite were the Tawny Frogmouths! The spider and insect as well as snake displays are great fun. You can hold a koala and have photos taken with them (for a fee). Other animals are made available to interact with. The shows are interesting, informative as well as entertaining. Ample information on your surroundings, including the flora. Leave yourself around half a day, perhaps a bit more, to enjoy this well-kept, interesting, fun park! I've taken a number of overseas visitors to this park over the years and have never been disappointed. Well done, team Australian Reptile Park!
