  • Apart from being a bit pricey to get in at $16 per adult, this was an interesting place to visit. It’s not very big (hence not the best value for money) but the staff were friendly and knowledgeable a...  more »

  • I would highly recommend the Reptile Zoo. We recently had my son's 6th birthday there and all the children and adults loved it. The private show by Christian was educational and exceptionally entertaining at the same time. The kids loved the hands on experience with frogs, lizards, snakes, turtles etc.
  • This place was superb. The staff went of their way to tell you information about the different reptiles. They were amazing. A really great family experience.
  • Despite it's small size, we spent an easy 2 hours here admiring the lizards, snakes, turtles and crocs. You can get up close and personal with the reptiles and the kids volunteering during the school holiday were amazingly passionate and knowledgeable. We could have stayed longer. Do yourself a favour and visit this place if you are ever Canberra way.
  • 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.
  • Bit small and unimpressive for those that have seen plenty of reptiles before. Staff were great though
