Really enjoyed the centre. Rex who tells you about the reptiles is very passionate and gives you some very good information about the reptiles. The centre is beautifully displayed.

Many different species of snakes and geckos. Many lizards in all sizes. Even a big salt water crocodile. Overall a great and impressive display. However overall the place is relatively small and the visit expensive.

Extremely cool to see a crocodile opening its jaw on the distance of a glass window's separation only. Saw many big snakes, and many of them were actually moving and not just lying under a piece of wood as with many of these Reptile Centres.

Four stars for Alice Springs. Presentation with fun opportunities to touch and hold various reptiles, including a large (and unexpectedly heavy) python. Indoors and outside exhibits. The center is a bit worn, but the animals seem engaged and healthy.

Rex presented the talk we saw. He is informative and funny. We learnt things about red centre reptiles and how they differ from our eastern state reptiles. Was surprised to see the white colour of the Mulga snake! So glad we got to see a Thorny Devil up close too.

Snakes interesting but the highlight was the fresh water crocodile that responds to 10 commands. Utterly bizarre but so interesting to see how not-dumb an animal can be.

We went not really knowing what to expect but we're lucky enough to see a presentation which was great. The young lady knew her stuff and was so friendly. The reptile park is small but there is lots to look at and it's very informative. And the salt water croc is great
