Always fascinating, and my grandson (12) loved it. Fine display of living snakes, lizards, and even a big saltie. Always fun to get up close to these fascinating creatures.

The Reptile Centre has it all - thorny devils, many skinks, geckos, goannas, pythons and venomous snakes, plus a saltwater crocodile! A great way to learn about these creatures up close without risk.
