    Great spot to get real up and personal with a lot of different reptiles. Was enjoyable chatting with some of the reptile carers (?) As they really know their stuff. Best of all, you can pet them. Was ...  more »

  • The Reptile Zoo has a variety of reptiles and amphibians to view and to touch. We like patting Scar the Goanna, and seeing which snake is out and about with a staff member. I also love watching the turtles both in the inside tank and out in the pond. All of the staff are knowledgeable, friendly and helpful. We have attended a number of birthday parties there too, including one for our seven year old daughter. The party rooms are generously sized, and BBQ facilities are available. The private shows never fail to amaze and entertain, and Peter and his crew are wonderful with kids, and very patient! There is also a small playground with large animal figures, a sandpit of dinosaur bones, tables with puzzles, books and colouring materials, and the outdoor area is partially covered with shade cloth. My kids love the Reptile Zoo so much we bought an annual pass for the whole family.
  • My grand daughter loved it. Interactive. Staff friendly and informative
  • Excellent place to take the whole family. We have been numerous times now for parties and visits. You can have a hands-on experience with the reptiles. Staff are always friendly and welcoming and will answer all your questions. Keep up the great work guys! 👍👍👍
  • This is a small zoo with a reasonable selection of reptiles to see and touch. They do kids parties with a special reptile show. There is a lot of random crap all over the place which detracts from the experience a lot including fiberglass animals, dragons and dinosaurs. Not bad for a quick visit but you will see everything in less than an hour.
  • Nice variety of reptiles and you get to touch some of them with no extra charge
