There is lots to see at this park and the BBQ picnic area is spacious. The kids park is equally fantastic. We will visit again at... More

We checked out the reviews on TripAdvisor before we go to Australian Reptile Park. And it looked good. But in reality it was $35 each and it was not that big. In Adelaide we have visit Gorge Wildlife park and that was much bigger and more to see. But on the other side there we're lots of reptiles to see.... More

The day was jammed packed with activities at the park. It allowed the children to interact with a range of animals and the entrance fee covered all activities except photos. The cost was very reasonable. The walking with animals program and the hands on activities made the day for my grandson.

We booked mini K2K private tour. However, we arrived late due to flight delay and unexpected lost during the way. They said they will cut our tour by the amount of time that we're late (normal tour hour is 1.5 hours). We were half an hour late. However, we counted the time. It was only 30 minutes tour. The tour... More

Great little reptile park just outside of Sydney. The staff was great, enthused and helpful. The bugs, reptiles and snakes were interesting. The kangaroos and koalas were adorable.. I wish our tour group had more time here - there is so much to see!

I was really impressed with the range of animals/creatures they had. The live shows are absolutely brillant and i would really like to recommend 'Zach'... More

We have visited the park on several occasions and had a christmas party there for work. Staff are fantastic and dedicated to the animals in their care. This is a fantastic place to see the animals and in some circumstances touch and feel when the staff roam with some of the reptiles and koalas.
